Cows are a basic Harvest Moon animal that you can raise on your farm. If you live in Bluebell Town, Jessica will give you a free adult cow at the beginning of the game. If you live in Konohana Town, then you have to travel over to Jessica's shop in Bluebell and buy a baby cow for 1500 G before she will sell adult-sized cows. Adult cows will cost you 3000 G.
Once you reach year 2 in the game, Jessica will being to sell the upgraded Jersey Cows. A baby Jersey will cost you 5500 G and an adult will cost 13,500 G. Jerseys randomly appear in her inventory, so you just need to keep going back to check her shop to see if they're for sale.
If you want to produce your own cows, have Jessica take your cow for two weeks by hiring her at the Animal Shop. The baby cow that she returns to you will take 20 days to mature into an adult cow. A regular Cow has a life expectancy of 7 years but a Jersey will only live for a maximum of 6 years.
Both types of cows can be milked every day. Cows produce Milk and Jersey Cows produce Jersey Milk. You can ship the milk raw or you can process it into upgraded goods using the fermenting maker machine on the Bluebell farm. Regular Milk can be processed into Cheese, Butter, and Yogurt. The Jersey cow's milk will turn into "good"-titled items, such as Good Yogurt, Good Cheese, and so on. If you want "great" goods from the maker machine you'll need to put Golden Milk into the maker machines to get Great Cheese, Great Yogurt, and Great Butter. Golden Milk is produced from a cow that has won the Bluebell Cow Festival on Spring 26. If your normal Cow wins, it has a 20% chance of producing Golden Milk. A winning Jersey Cow will have a 50% chance of producing Golden Milk. Winning the festival with the same cow multiple times won't increase its Golden Milk random chances.
