The most incredible domesticated mob of Minecraft is the cows. Cows can be friendly and easy to raise, which allows them to produce some incredible items. The cows can be used to produce food, leather and milk. It's often the most critical time of the game, as you won't be able to find cows close by your base. This problem has an easy solution. It's easy to create a Minecraft cow farm. You won't need to look for another cow after it is built and populated. Let's move on!

Make a Cow Farm In Minecraft (2022).

First, we will cover all the requirements and mechanics of building a cow farm within-game. You can skip to the functionality by using the table below.

The mechanics of a Minecraft Cowfarm

Unlike other useful Minecraft farms, the cow farm can't be automated - at least not without the use of Minecraft commands. To keep your cow farm running smoothly, it is important to put forth some effort every now and again. It also means that cow farms can be the most simple to build.

You can create a cow farm by simply trapping cows, and then breeding them. You can then kill the cows in your farm to get your reward. Moreover, if you know how to use an Allay in Minecraft, it can take care of the collection process, making the farm semi-automatic right away.

Required Items to Build a Cow Farm

To make a Minecraft cow farm, you will need these items:

(2) cows

  • As many stacks as you can of wheat*
  • One stack of fencing (or more, depending on where you are) Fence gate

Two cows can be found in the Minecraft plains biome. You can read about all the Minecraft biomes via the link right here. These are more prevalent in villages. You can get wheat from the same village. Though, you can grow your wheat in Minecraft to get enough of it for your farm.

Making a Fence Gate & Fence


Recipe for Fence Gates (up) and Fence Fences (down).

Only sticks and planks are required to create fences or gates. They can be made from any type of wood. They are also inextricably linked. You can build many fences quickly thanks to Minecraft's abundance of wood.

Making a Cow Farm In Minecraft

These steps will help you quickly build a cow-farm and access various Minecraft resources.

1. 1. Find an area at minimum 4x4 blocks. To avoid having snow collected, it is best to not choose a cold biome.


2. Next, create a boundary in that area with fences. To allow cows to be transported and entered the farm, you will need to add a gate door.


3. The next step is to use wheat to get the cows following you**, and then have them enter your farm. To get started, you only need to have two cows. However, it is better to have more.


4. To activate the farm, hold a bit of wheat and then stand in front. As soon as the wheat is noticed by cows, they will come towards you.


5. You must feed the cows wheat when they approach. Once both cows have been fed, the baby cows will spawn. The baby cow will grow from a newborn to an adult in 20 minutes. It takes only 5 minutes to get the cows ready for breeding again. If you do it correctly, you will be able to get lots of cows quickly.


Kill Cows Automatically to Get XP and Other Items

Most Minecrafters will grab a sword to kill cows in cow farms. This is usually an action that you need to do. You will need to begin from scratch if you don't save any of the animals. If you want to speed up the process of killing, these are some steps you can take:

1. Place solid blocks first outside of the fence line.


2. Place water at one corner. The water will flow and push the cows to one side of your farm.


3. 3


4. Every cow who reaches the corner at this point will be killed by magma block damage. The hopper will collect the items they have dropped into the chest.


This method works best for killing several cows simultaneously. To stop cows from flowing, simply remove any water.
