The cow is a large herbivore best known for it's milk and tasty meat.


Taming

Cows don't spawn in the wild and thus cannot be tamed. They can only be obtained via trading or received though the animal self-taming event. A cow can be milked for up to 15 units of milk per day (depending on your pawns animals skill) which means that a single cow can provide enough nutrition for one and a half meals a day if cooked into a simple meal or two and a half meal if cooked into a fine meal. This can be quite important, as it means that as long as you have enough food (either natural grass or haygrass) to keep your cattle fed you can create a settlement that is entirely self sufficient for food even if your food crops become ruined or get destroyed.
