Main "Generics" page

Milk is used to make Butter, Curds, and Batter, and is therefore an ingredient of several Baked Goods.
Milk can be stored in any Drinking Vessel, a Bucket, Barrel, or a Cistern.

Drinking milk increases the FEP gained and helps reduce satiation from Bread, Forageables and Berrys.

How to Acquire

Milk is acquired by selecting a bucket, barrel or any drinking vessel and using it on any milk-able animal via right-click.

Cows produce Milk at a rate of Milk Quantity * 0.01 per 10 minutes.
0.1L/10 minutes at Quantity 10. 0.4L/10 minutes at Quantity 40, 2.0L/10 minutes at Quantity 200.

  • Cows can store a maximum of 25L of Milk
  • Sheep can store a maximum of 25L of Milk
  • Goat can store a maximum of 15+ (25L) of Milk
  • Only 2L can be milked from an Aurochs. A higher level clover produces higher level milk.
  • Mixing different types of milk in any container will yield neutral 'Milk' of generic property.


  • Milk has no preferred container and therefore cannot gain quality boosts.
  • Quality 10 milk recovers 10% stamina and drains 20% energy per 0.05L sip. Higher quality milk will decrease the energy drain but stamina recovery remains the same at all qualities.
  • This makes high quality milk useful for performing stamina draining tasks without having to eat as much to recover, thus preserving your hunger bonus. Though energy is always shown as a whole number, it is not simply rounded up or down. For example, Q11 milk will alternate between draining 20% and 19% energy at regular intervals. Other drinkable liquids follow the same rules and formula.
  • As of World 15, when your Energy bar is lower than 8000%, eating outside of a table does not provide any hunger, satiation or FEP, making this strategy rather useless.
  • Energy Drain=
  • Gives energy if Q >20
  • According to that formula initial quality growth is more effective, and it always higher than 10% per 0.05 sip. Naturally stamina regenerate 10% per 10% energy.


  • You can use a barrel of milk to feed baby animals if you accidentally kill off their mother or if there is no lactating adult female present.

Game Development

  • Grade-A Milk (2016-04-12) >"Added new mechanic for drinks. All drinks restore stamina much like water, but they also buff particular food satiations. ...
    Also note that drinks will count as half-quality if you drink them from a non-preffered vessel (i.e. drinking wine from anything but a wine glass). Drinking vessel type does not affect the effective quality for stamina regeneration purposes.
