A large mammalian herbivore. They often bear large horns and the males are ill-tempered. They are domesticated for milk and meat.

Cows are large mammalian herbivores, analogous to their real-life counterparts. They are a very viable source of food for a fortress and can be bought at embark. The products gained from butchering a single cow can, at an estimate, feed four dwarves for about a year. Cows can also be milked at a farmer's workshop with a bucket to procure milk. Loved by some dwarves for their "haunting moos," cows require a pasture to survive.
