The cow is a creature used as livestock. Cows are normally raised as food, but they can also be adopted as pets. Cows were intended to eventually be milkable, which could then be used as is or turned into cheese. However, milking non-verminous creatures is not implemented in this version. Male cows are known as bulls. A cow and a bull will eventually mate, resulting in new calves, possible as early as autumn of the first year.
