What does *Limit* in bonus mean?

This means the livestock has reached the max of their Level Limit for the day. This limit can be increased with feed until the max amount of feed has been eaten that day. Level Limits reset on the sl day.

Why is there a limit on feed and breeding?

There are some that abused the system and would feed and breed for many many hours a day. This caused the system to be unbalanced. All changes are in an effort to keep the system within a reasonable milking rate balance.

Does *Limit* text effect breeding?

Once limit is hit you will not get a bonus from breeding.

A farm hand used to be part of my dairy but I can't register them again?

Once a farm hand is disabled in a dairy, an owner or manager is the must use the workers page for a dairy to re-activate the farm hand. 

For security, farm hands can not be re-added or re-registered from a management terminal. 

Is there a limit to the amount of farm hands a dairy can have?

No.

Can a dairy also be a stable?

Yes. Dairies just need to buy a stable package.

Is seed and milk in a dairy tank reset at the end of the month?

Yes.

It says I am pregnant but I don't have the bonus?

This normally means you must deliver. Cows that are requiring delivery are not eligible for the pregnant bonus.

Does *Limit* text effect breeding?

Once limit is hit you will not get a bonus from breeding.

How long does a pregnancy last?

30 real life days. 

Can a cow be mounted and bred while pregnant?

Yes. Both the cow and bull will receive breeding bonus. However the cow can not get double pregnant.

Can a cow prevent a bull from breeding them?

Yes. There is a buck off button when a bull starts a breed. This is another level of consent for the cow to agree to. 

Cow

What does a cow's level do?

A cow's level changes a few things for the cow's milking rate. As the cow gains levels, they are able to produce more milk but only for a specific amount of time.

This bonus to milking rate based on your level, resets each sl day. So you are able to milk at max rate for a specific amount of milk then your rate will go back to default. Wait for the next sl day, and you can milk at max rate again.

The idea behind this is that cows that want to complete larger quotas as they gain level can do so while giving other cows that want to milk a long time not such a huge advantage.

Cow

How is exp earned for leveling?

Exp is earned based on milk cycles completed. This is a time based stat. Exp is not given for milk amount.

The reason behind using time and not milk amount is because there are so many bonus to stack for milking rate, levels can get very high with only a short amount of time. Using milk amount also gives people who are not breeders or using extreme milkers a huge advantage

Cow

How do I tell if a cow can breed?

Cows can check their breed status by using the "my Info" or cow scan at the terminals.

Cows that can breed will also have purple text over their head instead of green if they are not breeders.

Note that a cow that needs to deliver will not get a pregnant bonus until they complete their delivery and are successfully seeded again.

Cow

Does it cost anything to become a cow?

No.

Becoming a cow and getting the milker pumps / mask will always be free.

Cows can purchase a few components that give more restrictions and add extra aspects to the experience, such as the extreme hud, but the base cow experience will always be free.

Cow

Can a cow be a bull or farm hand?

Yes.

There are no role restrictions for cow / bull / farmhand.

Cow

Can a cow milk at any Dairy / Farm?

Yes

Unless the cow is banned.

Muffin's Milkers does not restrict a cow from milking at any dairy. However, milk amounts earned at a dairy are counted at that dairy. This means that if you are competing for ribbons, overall ribbons are given out based on your highest dairy amount for that month / season.

This goes for all stats as the dairy is given counts based on the tasks that happen to livestock at their dairy.

A cow can also belong to only one dairy for the "Home" bonus. It takes 7 days to change which dairy you belong to.

Cow

Can a cow join a Dairy?

Yes

There is the ablity for a cow to join a dairy to have it as their "Home Dairy." This gives a home dairy bonus to milking.

Once a cow joins a dairy, they can not join another dairy for 7 days.

Even if a cow joins a dairy, they can still milk at any other dairy just will not receive the home bonus.

Cow
How do I level up? How do I earn EXP?

Exp is earned in a few different ways but the majority of a cow's exp is earned by milking. 


Exp earned by milking is based on the time spent milking. Not the amount of milk.

A registered cow is sitting on the stall but nothing is happening?

Make sure the cow is wearing the milker breast pumps. These are required to start the milking process.


I want a cow to get off the milker, is there an option for this?

Yes, registered farm hands can unsit cows. Click the control box and the farm hand menu option. Then select "Unsit".

When I click the control box on the milker stall it says "Not Authorized", what do I do?

You must be a registered farm hand with the dairy the stall is registered to.

If you are a registered farm hand, then there are two main issues that cause this behavior. 

First, the lag on the server causes the worker request to lag behind a milking or feeding cycle. Second, two people click while waiting for authorization causing the milker to get confused. Have a single farm hand re-click the box and wait for authorization (it could take multiple attempts), you should eventually be able to use the farm hand tools.

Everything has stopped on my milker and no menus are showing up. How do I resolve this?

There are three main ways to reset the stall. 

The first way is a public reset button on the first menu when someone clicks the control box. Anyone can reset the milker as long as no one is sitting on it. This reset will reset the majority of scripts except the main farm hand script. 

The second reset is the hard reset. This is in the owner menu options after clicking the farm hand button. This will reset the milker back to it's original state where you would need to re-register the stall. 

The last method is to pick up and re-rez the milker or reset the scripts via the "Reset All Scripts" option on must SL viewers. This should solve any issue as it will reset everything.

The main reason resets need to happen is an error received from the server. I try to minimize these impacts but sometimes they just happen.

Who and how can you change the mode of the utility milker?

A registered farm hand of the dairy can swith the mode of the utility stall.

Click on the stall control box, then select farm hand menu. You will be presented with an option to change the mode here.

Who can milk a cow on the manual milker setting?

A registered farm hand is required to do manual milking on the cow. 

Can I disable the punishments and addictions?

Yes as long as you have not set "Perma-lock" via the my details page for the HUD.


You have 5 minutes once logging on to disable the Role based features. 

To turn off these features, click the hud's settings icon (looks like a gear) and click the "Disable Roles" button. 



Is the MuffinOS Hud required to buy Milk Delivery tanks or use Feed Dispensers for milk?

No the Hud is not required for these features. 

I want to use the MuffinOS but don't want RLV punishments or addictions. How can I do this?

The MuffinOS package includes a 'Lite" version. This version has no RLV. All punishments, addictions, and shape changing is disabled. All other MuffinOS features are included though.

How do I get more feed?

Dairy owners and managers can buy feed on the Moolah Store 


https://muffinsmilkers.com/MoolahStore

There are many ways to earn Moolah. But the primary methods are donations and dairy achievements 

I have feed in the dispenser but the milkers say there the dairy is out of feed.

The feed dispenser is not connected to the milk tanks. Filling the dispensers means you are taking feed from your feed tanks, which the milkers use, and putting it in the dispenser. 


Remember you can refund the feed in your dispenser if you are totally out of feed. Or go to the Moolah store to buy more feed.  

Do I need a MuffinOS Hud to earn Moolah?

No.


All users earn Moolah. Moolah items though require the MuffinOS hud to be able to be used. 

But you can always donate your Moolah to a dairy instead. See your details page on the website to see how much Moolah you have.

Can I buy Moolah?

No. 


Moolah is an earned currency withing the Muffin's Milkers game.

How much Moolah will my dairy get for an achievement?

250 is the standard Moolah rate for achievements. 


Note that special event Achievements will be more. 

How many tanks can I wear at once?

The milk delivery system was designed to only have a user have one tank at a time. Some users have found ways to wear multiple tanks but this is not intended.

Can I rez multiple delivery tanks at once?

Yes, this is fine. 

The drop off location says "Can only be used by tank owner" when trying to drop off milk. Why is this?

To drop off milk, click the tank you are wearing, not the drop off location. The drop off location tank is only configurable by an owner where any farm hand can deliver from their own can. 

The Cattle Prod has never worked. Is something wrong?

The cattle prod is designed to be only used by active farm hands. You must complete at least one task in order to use the cattle prod. This include feeding a cow, milking a cow, or delivering milk. Farm hands that only join to use a cattle prod will not be able to use the cattle prod in  order to reduce abuse of alts. 

How does a cow or bull get sick?


There are currently 6 different viruses and conditions. Each has their own conditions that must be met before a livestock can get a medical issue. There is also a random chance once these conditions are met that the cow will get set.

There are no medical issues that are completely random. 

Also note some medical issues are spread from breeding. So a sick cow or bull can infect others.

Are there symptoms of a medical issue?

Yes. Each medical issue will cause a performance decline from livestock in some way. Each medical issue affects livestock differently.

You will also see a icon above livestock's head when milking just under the bonus if they have a medical issue.

Is there any way to tell livestock are sick without the scanning device?

Yes. You will see a symbol in their text above a milker just under the Milking bonuses.

Can taking to many items hurt my grade?

There are specific items that are not counted for grade. 

  • Feed Supplement
  • Udder Butter
  • Tank Grease

Taking too many of the other user items such as Milk+, Seed+ or Endurance can hurt your grade. 

However, this reduction is on a scale. Each extra pill over the limit has a progressively lower impact on your grade.

The stated limit for pills is not revealed but you can take a few pills each day with no ill effects on grade.

It makes no difference where the pill comes from (from your own hud or from someone elses hud).

Does hitting Exhausted hurt your grade?

Yes

Can other farmhands treat my livestock? I’m a small dairy and don’t have enough seed, can other dairies farm hands help me?

Yes. However, by default, only your dairy farm hands can treat your dairy’s livestock. There is a security option on the website that states “Allow Outside Farm hands to Treat Livestock.” Enabling this will allow any farm hands to treat your livestock regardless of dairy.

Will medical issues affect grade?

Yes, but only slightly

How often do medical issues occur?;

The medical check is every 6 hours.

Can a stable also be a dairy?

Yes. A stable just needs to buy a dairy package.

Is power in a stable battery reset at the end of the month?

Yes.

Is power in a stable battery reset at the end of the month?

Yes

What gender is a pony?

Ponies include all genders. For breeding, there is a stallion flag that can be set via the farmhand terminal. 

Can a pony complete a circle and a power quota daily?

Yes a pony can complete circle and power quota each day. 

Will having the pony role effect my cow and bull grade?

No. Pony role has no effect on cow and bull grade.

Can a farmhand, who is also a cow or bull, wear the plug and fill themselves for picking up seed orders? 

Yes. But I would encourage play with others.
