In Minecraft Bedrock Edition, cows are known as passive mobs that are able to only be found in the Overworld. All of them mobs spawn in herds of 4 on the top of opaque blocks with two blocks of free space above them and a light level of 9 and above. They do mob spawn when the world generates the first time, but they also spawn normal if there are no passive mobs in loaded chunks.
There are two species of cow. The first one is the basic brown and the second one is the red mushroom. Adult ones will drop 0 to 2 leather and 1 to 3 raw beef or 1 to 3 cooked steak if killed while on fire. Aside from that, they are also able to be milked using a bucket and mushrooms that are able to be sheared for mushrooms, which is turn makes them into normal ones. Please take a note that killing a cow drops one to 3 experience while breeding drops one to seven experience.
If cows are fed wheat, they will go into love mode and two parents of the cow will breed and produce a small baby of cow called calf, wherein a 5 minute cooldown will begin until they can breed again.
How long the baby cow growth time needed in Minecraft Bedrock Edition? Just like all the babies obtained by breeding, baby cows take 20 minutes to grow up. In the past, there was no way to speed up this process, except for baby sheep, which is able to grow faster if they eat grass and foals or colts for baby horses which you are able to feed to speed up their growth. As of release of 1.8, the growth of baby cows (as well as the other baby animals’ growth) is able to be accelerated by feeding them the animal’s breeding item like wheat, cutting down the remaining time by 10 percent. In the future, it might be changed again, so please update the information about it regularly.
Talking about the cows, they have a height of 1.4 blocks while calves are 0.7 blocks in height. They will walk around slowly and wander, moosing and sometimes breathing. Aside from that, they will also avoid cliffs that are high enough to cause fall damage and will run in panic when they are hit or damaged. In fact, they will follow a player holding wheat, as long as they are less than 10 blocks away. If you hold a wheat, they will follow you until you stop holding the wheat or create too large distance between them, thus leading them to lose interest.
For those who play Minecraft Bedrock Edition, here is the structure and the container of obtaining the wheat (natural generation): Dungeon (chest), Igloo (chest), Pillager Outpost (chest), Shipwreck (supply chest), Underwater Ruins (small and big ruins chest), Village (desert house chest, shepherd’s chest, and buther’s chest), and Woodland Mansion (chest).
