The Breeder is added by the MineFactory Reloaded mod. Like all MFR Machines, it runs on either BuildCraft or Industrial Craft 2 power.

Inserting wheat into the left slots distribute it to nearby animals making them breed. The food only gets used when an animal can accept it.

The breeder will feed all eligible adult animals in a 5x5 area in front of the Breeder.

Like all MineFactory Reloaded machines, the Breeder can be turned on/off with a Redstone signal.

  • Once an animal can accept food again to start breeding, the breeder will distribute the food to it regardless if it has an available matching partner in the area.
  • All animals are bred with Wheat, regardless of how they would be bred normally. For example pigs, which are normally only bred with carrots, will be bred with wheat by the Breeder.
