Mooshrooms are unique variations of cows.



Mooshrooms spawn on mycelium blocks in mushroom island biomes in herds of 4 to 8. They do not naturally spawn in any other biome.

Baby mooshroom

If a pair of mooshrooms are given wheat, they will breed. A mooshroom cannot be bred with a cow, even one that used to be a mooshroom.

Feeding wheat to a baby mooshroom will speed up its growing time by 10% of the remaining time.

Baby mooshrooms do not have mushrooms on their backs, but they will appear once it is fully grown.


Mooshrooms drop 0–2 leather and 1–3 raw beef (1–3 steak if killed while on fire). Shearing one will drop 5 red mushrooms and turn the mooshroom into a normal cow, emitting an explosion particle. When you shear the mooshroom cow, the mushrooms can't grow back. Mooshrooms also drop 1–3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

Like other baby animals, killing a baby mooshroom yields no items, nor experience.

Besides giving milk, mooshrooms can be milked with bowls to give mushroom stew.


Mooshrooms tend to walk around slowly and aimlessly, huffing and mooing occasionally. They will avoid danger such as cliffs, fire or lava, but will make no attempt to stay out of water.

A mooshroom will follow players holding wheat.

Mooshrooms are 1.4 blocks tall, and baby mooshrooms are 0.7 blocks tall.
