Minecraft cow skin. Cows are passive mobs found in the Overworld.
Cows are 1.3 blocks tall (1.4 blocks tall in 1.9)
Baby cows are 0.65 blocks tall (0.7 blocks tall in 1.9)
Cows spawn in herds of 4 on top of opaque blocks with at least 2 blocks of space above them, at a light level of 9 or higher. They mostly spawn in herds while the world is first generating; although if there are no passive mobs in loaded chunks, they can spawn after world generation in normal spawning cycles.
A calf compared to an adult cow. Main article: Breeding If cows are given wheat, their love mode will be triggered, and they will pair off to create calves, which may grant the player a small amount of experience. The parent cows will then have a delay of 5 minutes before they can breed again.
The growth of baby cows can be slowly accelerated using wheat. Each use takes 10% off the remaining time to grow up.
