Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
A large mammalian herbivore. It has long fur and curving horns. It can be found in the mountains.

Yaks are large, milkable domestic animals. Previous to 40.13, they required significant pastureland to survive, making them poorly suited as livestock for a meat industry. However, the grazing change in 40.13 significantly reduced the pasture area required to keep Yaks alive. They now make a reasonable choice for meat industry animals as they produce high quantities of meat while also producing milk.

Yaks can serve as pack animals and are a common sight in merchant caravans. The males of the species are known as "yak bulls", while the females are known as "yak cows".

Some dwarves like yaks "for their shaggy hair".
