  • Mushroom fields biomes
  • When a mooshroom is struck by lightning (changes type).

Mooshrooms are mushroom-covered variants of cows exclusive to the rare mushroom fields biome.


Java Edition[edit]

Red mooshrooms can spawn in mushroom fields biomes in herds of 4–8, when the light level is 9 or higher, and on Mycelium. They do not naturally spawn in any other biome. A red mooshroom transforms into a brown mooshroom (and vice versa) when it is struck by lightning.

Bedrock Edition[edit]

Mooshrooms spawn at light level 7 or above. 5% of them spawn as babies.


A pair of mooshrooms can breed after being given wheat. A mooshroom cannot be bred with a cow unless the mooshroom has been sheared.

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

Baby mooshrooms do not have mushrooms on their backs. Mushrooms appear once the baby grows to an adult.

Breeding two red mooshrooms has a 11024 chance to spawn a brown baby variant, and vice versa.

When breeding a red mooshroom and a brown mooshroom together, there is 12 chance of getting a red baby variant, and a 12 chance of getting a brown baby variant.


When an adult mooshroom is killed, it drops:

  • 0–2 Leather. The maximum amount is increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 0-5 with Looting III.
  • 1–3 Raw Beef (Steak if killed while on fire). The maximum amount is increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 1-6 with Looting III.
  • 1–3 (when killed by a player or tamed wolf)

Upon successful breeding, 1–7 is dropped.

Shearing a mooshroom drops 5 corresponding mushrooms and turns the mooshroom into a normal cow, emitting a smaller version of explosion particle. The mushrooms don't grow back.

Like other baby animals, killing a baby mooshroom yields no items or experience.


A mooshroom can be milked by using a bucket on it, yielding a milk bucket. The player can then use the milk bucket to consume the milk, which removes any status effects from the player.

Mooshrooms can also be milked with bowls to give mushroom stew.

When a flower is used on a brown mooshroom, the brown mooshroom produces a suspicious stew related to that flower the next time it is milked with a bowl. The mooshroom returns to producing mushroom stew until fed another flower.


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

A mooshroom follows a player holding wheat.

Red mooshrooms convert to brown mooshrooms, and brown convert to red when they are struck by lightning.
