Cow (Player-owned farm)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape
Jump to: navigation, search

Cows are livestock that can be raised and bred at the player-owned farm once unlocked at level 49 Farming, as well level 60 in Construction in order to build the large pens. Unchecked cows and bulls are purchased through the Farmers' Market. The large pens will need to be unlocked from the Farmers' Market before being able to build the pen. Cows can be placed in the two large pens (capacity of three animals each) and in the breeding pen (capacity of four animals).

In total there are five different breeds including the shiny harlequin cow.

Like all farm animals, they may have up to three traits, which determine their selling price in beans to non-player characters, among other effects, and can be sold on the Grand Exchange in their unchecked form. Once they have been checked, however they may only be traded directly between players or sold to Milkshake, the cow fancier. Six can be sold each three days.

Cows eat vegetables, fruits, and flowers.

Perks[edit | edit source]

Like other animals purchased on the Farmers' Market, cows have separate perks for the females and males.

The female cow perk is named "Milky, Milky", and it gives the player increased Cooking experience from churning. The tier 1 perk gives double experience from churning, while the tier 2 perk gives triple experience from churning. If an elder female cow is placed in a pen with a farm totem, the tier 1 perk is activated. If another elder female cow is placed in a separate pen with a farm totem, the tier 2 perk is activated.

The male cow perk is named "Bully for You", and it gives the player a chance to not deplete a compost bin when collecting compost from it. The tier 1 perk gives the player a 1 in 5 chance to not deplete compost, while the tier 2 perk gives the player a 1 in 3 chance to not deplete compost. If an elder male cow is placed in a pen with a farm totem, the tier 1 perk is activated. If another elder male cow is placed in a separate pen with a farm totem, the tier 2 perk is activated.
