For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Ranch.
A Ranch is a food resource building in Tropico 1. The building produces a mating pair of cattle or goats on build, which eat the grass nearby for food. If properly fed and maintained, the animal number will rise, and so will your food count.
- Smoke House: $2,000 - Makes Smoked Beef, increasing the export price. Only works on cattle.
- Switching to the other animal type will give you a mating pair of that animal, but only once. You can switch back.
- Cattle have a wider range of grass than goats, showing deeper red and brighter green. Goats aren't as picky with grass, showing a mid green most of the time unless in a rough patch or city.
