Minecraft Cow Facts List

Cows are one of the most basic farm animals that players will interact with in the Minecraft 1.19 which can be bred and multiplied easily. 

They are an excellent source of food and many other resources. New players who are going to dive into the game for the first time should familiarize themselves with how it works.

Rare Animals in Game

Most Minecraft players know that cows drop hide and raw beef (unless killed with a Fire Aspect or Flint and Steel sword). However, you may not know how many and how often these items fall.

So that makes the animal in this game one that is quite rare to find. It's a well-known fact in Minecraft that cows often drop their skin when killed. 

In fact, cows are probably the best way for players to get skins in all of Minecraft. When a cow is killed, it will drop from zero to two pieces of hide. 

When a player has a looting enchantment on his sword, the chances of getting leather from cows increase, but generally not much.

There are only a few other ways for players to get skins in Minecraft. This includes killing horses and rabbits, fishing, or being found in natural spawn crates. Skins have several uses in Minecraft, including books, armor, and saddles.

Calves Lay Eggs

One of the facts that you least expect is that the calf actually lays on its knee. Breeding two cows will produce a calf that will lay eggs. 

This is the most common way to get calves, but they can spawn naturally. Many players have probably seen a calf running around and it's not because two Minecraft cows have just bred. There's only a 5 percent chance of cows laying eggs as calves, so they're extremely rare. 

Released on Update 1.0.9

Cows are not always in the games you play. They were only added to Java Edition Alpha in the 1.0.9 update.

Not all monsters were added in the game's initial release. Cows, like many others, came later as the game has evolved over the years.

Strange Behavior

Minecraft cow behavior may seem strange and aimless. They usually hang around and occasionally see players. However, the cows would never go into the water unless a player took them with lead or grain. 

They also avoid walking on minecart rails and walking off ledges high enough to take fall damage.

Mooshrooms are much rarer than cows because they only spawn in the Mushroom Fields biome. However, players may not know that they can turn mooshrooms into cows if they so choose. 

Shaving the mooshroom (which should be random) will turn it into a cow in Minecraft dropping five mushrooms. You just found out right?

Cows have been a very helpful and important mob in Minecraft, from providing food to basic armor components, they are a very useful mob, especially at the start of an adventure.

Mojang has done a great job of improving and making welcome changes to make the cows more useful and not just walking food. 

Now equipped with all there is to know about them, be sure to earn all the benefits Minecraft cows have to offer.
