Mooshrooms are unique variations of cows.


Mooshrooms spawn on mycelium blocks in Mushroom Island biomes in herds of 2 to 8.

Baby mooshroom[edit]

If a pair of Mooshrooms are given wheat, they will breed.

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


Mooshrooms have the same drops as cows, however shearing one will drop 5 red mushrooms and turn the mooshroom into a normal cow, emitting smoke particles.

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


The behavior of mooshrooms are very similar to that of cows.



Official release
1.0.0 Beta 1.9-pre1 Mooshrooms were added. They could not be milked with a bucket like regular cows can. Right clicking on a Mooshroom with more than one bowl equipped would turn the whole stack into just one bowl of mushroom stew.
Beta 1.9-pre2 Breeding a cow with a Mooshroom may result in either, chosen randomly. The offspring may be more likely to be the kind you gave wheat to first, similarly to sheep.
Beta 1.9-pre3 Shearing a Mooshroom would cause it to split into two regular cows that could not be killed.
Beta 1.9-pre4 Mooshrooms may now spawn in other biomes as well.

Issues relating to "Mooshroom" are maintained on the issue tracker. Report issues there.


  • The name "Mooshroom" is a pun for "moo" and "mushroom".
  • Mooshrooms are similar to infected insects with Cordyceps fungi. Just like Cordyceps fungi growing on infected insects and terrestrial arthropods, mushrooms also grow on the Mooshroom.
    • Although the fungus in real life causes them to die, the mooshroom will not die to them.
