Then the realistic answer is probably you don't need to worry about it, because everybody starved or froze when there weren't any nearby for a while, or baked when there were too many and they sterilized everything.

If conditions are stable enough not to worry about that, then counting harvests or breeding seasons or whatever of whatever it is you are eating works fine for the collect taxes and release terms of enlistment stuff.
