Items usable on

Goats are neutral mobs found in mountains.


Groups of 2 to 3 goats spawn on extreme hills at the surface at a light level of 7 or higher, however, mountains is only a temporary spawn.[1]


Sometimes, a goat jumps up to 10 blocks high into the air. This usually happens if the goat is trying to cross an obstacle like a small hole in the ground or powder snow.

Goats take 20♥ × 10 less fall damage and also avoid walking into powder snow. While avoiding walking over powder snow, they also might jump over it, sometimes even in a narrow jumping area.


Every 10–15 seconds, if a goat has seen a mob or player who has not moved since, the goat attacks from up to 16 blocks away, except for other goats. After choosing something to attack, the goat performs a small charging animation, then runs quickly toward the target and hits them, dealing significant knockback. The ram can travel up to 9 blocks.

If the goat misses and instead hits a block, it has a chance of dropping a goat horn. If both horns are dropped, then no more goat horns are dropped when the goat charges a block.

Goats do not attack back if attacked by a player or mob. When attacked, they exhibit the same panicky fleeing that passive mobs exhibit.


Main article: Breeding

Goats follow players that are within 10 blocks who are holding wheat. If goats are fed wheat, they enter love mode and breed. Like other animals that can breed, the player is granted 1–7 experience when they are bred.


  • 1 goat horn when struck against a solid block, can only be dropped two times per goat.
  • 1–2 raw mutton (cooked mutton if killed while on fire). The maximum amount is increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 1–5 with Looting III.

Upon successful breeding, 1–7 is dropped.

Killing a baby goat yields no items nor experience.


A goat is milked by using a bucket on it, yielding a milk bucket.
