The ox tether is used for stone and iron delivery. It is a cheap building that is essential in weapons manufacturing and constructing defensive buildings.
The tether houses an ox and it does not require manpower to operate, making mining less costly in terms of peasants. By default, the ox automatically visits the nearest iron mine or stone quarry for materials, gets them loaded and then brings them to the stockpile. This can be overridden by a rally point, to which the nearest mining facility will be visited instead.
Since the ox tether does not rely on a presence of a worker to load, it is less forgiving if not placed right next to resource deposits. Still, an optimal number of tethers should be built in order to maximize efficiency.
