Summary0003874: Dwarves fight over animals
Description  I've noticed that butchering, milking, and chaining / caging duries can cause dwarves to fight over animals for hours.

  Apparently prioritization of animal tasks needs some love.

  I've sat and watched my fortress starve while my butcher and my milker fight over a cow. Prioritize milking, then butchering?

  More frequently I see milking and chaining fights. Prioritize chaining over milking?

  Often I see butchering and chaining fights. Prioritize chaining over butchering?

  Basically I think that animals should have some sort of action queue, and if chaining is on that queue, the chaining should happen first, then milking then butchering?

  If such a thing has existed in the past, it no longer seems to work.
Steps To ReproduceEvery version of DF for the last year or so since I first noticed it has had this issue. All you need is a cow, a workshop, and a chain. put the meeting place between them, widely separated, and assign a milking job and a chaining job while dwarves with both milking and animal hauling jobs are free, and you will watch a tug-of-war.
