My village has a lot of cattle and thus produces a lot of beef. Beef has a sell value of 3, and many (non-meat) foods have a value of 1.
Is it a good idea to trade
n units of beef to get
3n units of some other stuff ?
If the answer is that it's a good idea, then do more expensive foods have any advantages over cheaper ones ?
This is not something I would necessarily do normally, but right now a food crisis is looming and I though this might be a good way to buy myself some time as I still have thousands units of beef in stock.
