Template:Mob2Goats are tamable mobs that eat items.


Natural generation

Goats spawn on grass blocks at light levels of 9 or more with at least 2 block space above. They often spawn in groups of 4 during world generation, which includes males, females and kids.


Goats come in six different colors: white, gray, brown, gray-brown, gray-white and white-brown.


Goats drop 0-2 leather upon death. They drop 1 to 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

Female goats can be milked by right-clicking on them with a bucket.


Male Goat Milked

A male goat lowering its head after attempting to milk it.

Male goats are neutral, and female goats and kids are passive. If a male is provoked, or if you attempt to milk it with an empty bucket, it will ram at you with its horns. Female goats can be milked by using an empty bucket. Goats can be heard bleating occasionally, with females and kids emitting different bleats.

Goats are attracted to item entities floating on the ground, and will eat any item nearby, including diamonds. It's recommended to keep your valuables in a chest to keep them safe from goats. A goat will also follow you if you're holding an edible item.


Male goats will fight between themselves, but they don't take damage from doing so. This is characterised by the goats lowering their heads, raising their tails and charging at each other. When a goat gets knocked back by another goat, it is possible for one to get knocked over a fence, so a higher wall or separation of males would be suggested for containment.


A goat can be tamed by feeding it any edible food item, including rotten flesh and spider eyes (without getting the risk of food poisoning) and both types of golden apples. When the naming screen appears, the goat is tamed. To change a goat's name, right-click on it with a book, name tag, or medallion. To heal a hurt goat, feed it with any edible item. Goats can also be leashed, but the goat may eat the lead if it breaks.

Tamed goats will not attack the player if provoked, but males will if you attempt to milk them.

Even though there are male and female goats, they cannot be breed.

  • Since goats eat any item on the ground, they can be useful if you have lots of unneeded items.
  • Though goats eat floating item entities, they will not eat experience orbs.
  • Since female goats can be milked and they can be stored inside a pet amulet, goats can be used as a portable milk source.
