Cows are one of the unusual animal species found in Minecraft. One of the peaceful overworld mobs in Minecraft that is most prevalent is the cow. These creatures have existed since some of the game’s earliest iterations.
These creatures can be useful in many different situations. They can produce both beef and leather, and they can be milked or even killed.
Players must breed the cows to increase their number so that they can use these features more frequently. The only drawback is that there is a brief cooling-off period following breeding of these animals.
Required Materials to Breed Cows
These are the resources you can use in Minecraft to breed cows:
Steps to Breed Cows
First, you will need to find two cows to breed.
If you’re having trouble finding cows, you can use a cheat or a spawn egg to summon one.
We have constructed a fence to prevent our two cows from escaping because your cows need to be close to one another when breeding.
Use the Wheat
The wheat must then be fed to each of the cows one at a time while it is selected in your hot bar.
Depending on the version of Minecraft, you can use or feed the wheat to the cows in the following ways:
- Right-click on each of the cows in the Java Edition (PC/Mac) one at a time.
- You tap on the cows one at a time in the Pocket Edition (PE).
- Press the LT button on the Xbox controller for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
- Press the L2 button on the PS controller for the PS3 and PS4.
- For Wii U, press the ZL button on the gamepad.
- For Nintendo Switch, press the ZL button on the controller.
- Right-click the cows one at a time in the Windows 10 Edition.
- Right-click on each of the cows in the Education Edition sequentially.
Red hearts will appear over the cows’ heads as you feed them wheat. Each of these cows is entering love mode.
Once both cows have been fed, they will turn toward one another, and red hearts will keep appearing above their heads.
The red hearts will vanish after a brief interval, and a cute baby calf will then be present.
You now have two mature cows and one young cow.
Congratulations, you just learned how to breed cows in Minecraft!
Things to Do with Cows
Here are some things you can do in Minecraft with cows:
How to Breed Cows in Minecraft Survival Mode (All Versions)
How do you get cows to breed?
It’s as easy as this: Place grass in front of the cow and the bull in back of the cow. In other words, natural breeding is just letting a herd bull work his magic with a herd of cows or heifers for a few weeks or months before removing him once more.
How do you breed cows fast?
According to research, using a progesterone CIDR can start cycling earlier than it might naturally once a cow is 20 days post-calving. Cows are more likely to become pregnant earlier in the breeding season by beginning estrus earlier.
What can you breed cows with?
Breeding. When a player holds wheat, a cow will follow them, but will stop if they are at least six blocks apart. After being fed wheat, adult cows go into love mode and mate to produce calves, giving the player one to seven experience orbs.
