We need the cows to stay close together, so it’s a good idea to build a fence around them.

2. Feed The Cows Wheat

Then, with the cows very close together, we have to feed each cow with wheat. Select the wheat in your Hotbar and feed each cow separately using the following in-game controls:

  • Java Edition (PC/Mac), Windows 10 Edition, Education Edition: Right click on the cow.
  • Pocket Edition (PE): Touch the cow.
  • Xbox 360, Xbox One: Press the LT button.
  • PS3, PS4: Press the L2 button.
  • Wii U, Nintendo Switch: Press the ZL Button

After you feed the cows wheat, you will see red hearts appear. This means that the cows go into love mode.

As soon as the red hearts disappear, a baby cow (calf) appears. It usually takes about 20 minutes for the baby cow to reach maturity. However, you can speed up that process by feeding the calf wheat.

And you have to wait 5 minutes before your cows can breed again.
