How many animal units can we have before we get fined? I have looked everywhere and haven't found it yet? TIA, SR.

Yes 150 is the AU limit to get fines, and keep in mind, that if you look before midnight and it says you have 148 critters, and zero AU fees... If you have 10 calves turn 15 days old at midnight, suddenly you will be charged a fee, even tho it said you wouldn't be. you get charged the instant they turn 15 days old, not the next day. So that AU reading on your ranch page can be WAY off depending how many calves you have aging up.

But you can have up to 1000 AU before your cows will actually start to die off.

What are the odds of the AU fees being done away with or bumped up to let's say 500? I don't see why a larger ranch should be fined for being successful

I'm going to say nil. AU fee used to show up a lot sooner. (I'm pretty sure it was at 50 head, but I can't remember exactly.)

That's kinda unfortunate but I guess rules are rules
