Yaks are tameable herbivores with a medium movement speed. A Yak will increase the carrying capacity of any caravan it's part of by 66.5 kg.

Obtaining

Yaks can be found in Arid Shrubland, Temperate Forest, Boreal Forest and Tropical Rainforest. They can either be tamed by a handler or self-tame in a random event.

Yaks can be bought and sold in other faction bases and from bulk goods traders. Yaks purchased from traders will be already tamed. Yaks can be brought along with a caravan to increase carrying capacity by 66.5kg.

Production

Handlers are required to harvest resources from animals.

Female yaks can be milked once every 2 days, producing 12 milk.

Note that while cows are faster milk producers, yaks produce milk AND are pack animals, which is a combo that muffalos no longer provide. However, the dromedary is also a milkable pack animal that is superior in speed and carrying capacity.

See Animal Products for more details on how much each type of animal produces.
