A cow lives in a barn and must be purchased from Marnie.
To feed the cow: Simply place the hay received from the hay bin (located left of the feeding trough) and you will receive an amount of hay equal to the number of animals needed to feed in the barn. Simply left-click the trough with the obtained Hay and you will place it in the trough. It is better to just let the animals out of there barn during the Summer-Fall to feed on the grass out side, by doing so just right click the gate. Make sure to close the gate before sleeping. By not doing so the animals may become sad and there hearts will decrease.
Additionally, you may lower the door of the barn and let your cows out to graze during the day. It is recommended to fence off the barn area and grow grass within the fenced in area, as it will save you vast amounts of money.
Get Milk: In order to extract milk from a cow, you must first buy the Milk Pail from Marnie, and use it by left-clicking on a cow. If the cow is ready to be milked, you will get Milk, or Large Milk depending on the Cows heart level.
Heart levels: In order to raise the heart levels, you must right-click a cow similar to how chickens are. You can additionally check their status by right clicking them once more.
If cows are not fed daily, their heart levels will decrease, and they may refuse to give you milk the following day.
Pregnancy: Cows will become pregnant by themselves without any decision by the player. During the night, the player will receive a notice that their animal gave birth. A few days before that time, they will not produce milk several days in a row. If you do not want this to happen, there is an option in the check screen for the animal when you right click on them a second time.
