Points to Unlock


Unlocked by




The Dairy Cow, or Holstein, is unlocked by completing the Thoroughbred challenge.


Dairy cows are cattle cows bred for the ability to produce large quantities of milk, from which dairy products are made. Dairy cows generally are of the species Bos taurus. Dairy cows may be found either in herds on dairy farms where dairy farmers own, manage, care for, and collect milk from them, or on commercial farms. Herd sizes vary around the world depending on landholding culture and social structure.

Life as a Dairy Cow

The Dairy Cow is the second non-DLC size 5 grazer it is possible to unlock, and is the only animal where you can only be a female. The Dairy Cow's movement speed is a high average, but its cumbersome movements make it feel heavy and slow. It claims the highest base Hunger of any animal, but is brought down by also claiming the lowest base Stamina available. Unlike the Thoroughbred, the Dairy Cow is not so well suited for direct combat, but its low Stamina also makes it difficult to flee from any reasonably fast predators. The Dairy Cow's limitations make it very vulnerable to the large, fast predators of the later years, and is a very difficult size 5 grazer to use for novices.

Dairy Cows as Prey

Dairy Cows are fairly uncommon in the early years, but in mid to later years they can open be spotted on their own in territories such as Shibuya Station. They are likely to ignore smaller predators unless they are provoked, and if they choose to fight back can perform the Charge enemy skill, where they will deal heavy damage and knock down any target in their direct path. If you see a Dairy Cow ready a charge, it is best to jump quickly out of its way. For larger predators, Dairy Cows are a good source of calories and their lower speed makes them easier to chase down if they spot you than a Thoroughbred.
