Mooshrooms are unique variations of cows.


Mooshrooms spawn on mycelium blocks in mushroom island biomes in herds of 4 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 drop 0-2 leather and 1-3 raw beef (1-3 steak if died while on fire). Shearing one will drop 5 red mushrooms and turn the mooshroom into a normal cow, emitting smoke particles. Mooshrooms also drop 1-3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

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


Mooshrooms are 1.6875 blocks tall, 0.625 blocks wide, and 1.5 blocks long.

Mooshrooms tend to walk around slowly and aimlessly, breathing and mooing occasionally. They also tend to jump off high cliffs and make no attempt to stay out of water. During a rain or thunderstorm, mooshrooms can be seen taking cover under structures or trees to avoid getting wet.

A mooshroom will follow players holding wheat, and in doing so may run off cliffs and into damaging blocks.

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.
1.2.1 12w07b Mooshrooms have a new AI.
1.2.5 Mooshrooms can no longer breed with cows.(please verify if this is the correct version)
1.4.2 12w38a Added new step, hurt, and idle sounds.
1.8 14w26b Mooshrooms now require mycelium, not grass, for random spawning and spawning from mob spawners.
Pocket Edition Alpha
0.9.0 build 1 Added mooshrooms.
Console Edition
TU7 Added mooshrooms and baby mooshrooms.
Mooshrooms can be bred using wheat.
TU14 Baby mooshrooms can now be spawned by using Left trigger on an adult form of that mob using a spawn egg.

  • The name "Mooshroom" is a portmanteau for "moo" (which itself is an onomatopoeia of a cow's sound) and "mushroom".
