Daily at 7am the worker will:
– Fill the water trough, straw bedding and clean your animals. (configurable in XML)
– Feed all your animals based on number of animals. (configurable in XML)
– Charge a daily fee of 5% + base cost (in XML) + number of animals

New in Version 2.2

– Added key binds and GUI menu to configure settings.
