Goats are creatures indigenous to the Mountain Biomes of Minecraft, and players can farm them for their milk or unique item drop, Goat Horns.
Goats are a unique neutral mob found in Minecraft‘s mountainous biomes, and although they cannot be ridden like Horses or trained like Wolves, they drop a one-of-a-kind item known as a Goat Horn. The Goat Horn is a mysterious object that the Minecraft developers likely have more planned for in the future. It should be noted that, at the time of this article, Goat Horns are only available on the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft. However, the item and its changes will be announced for Java users after “The Wild Update,” expected to arrive in 2022.
In the meantime, Bedrock players may currently use the Goat Horn for a single yet whimsical purpose — to bellow the charge sound identical to a Raid beginning. Using the Goat Horn does not trigger a Raid, but it is an intriguing feature to give a try. To obtain the Goat Horn, players will need to find Goats.
As mentioned above, Minecraft Goats prefer the snowy and high-elevated regions of the Mountain Biomes in the Overworld. Slaying a Goat will net experience, but it will not drop any horns upon death. The only way to get Goat Horns in Minecraft is by having them ram a solid surface such as a wall, resulting in one or two of their horns being dropped. This procedure will require quick reflexes and a nearby wall or obstacle for the Goat to slam into.
How to Farm Goat Horns in Minecraft
First, it’s essential to understand when and how Minecraft Goats choose to ram a target. Every 30 seconds to 5 minutes, Goats will randomly charge at a mob or player character standing motionless for some time. The charging Goat will require four blocks of empty space to trigger their ramming behavior and attack any stationary up to 16 blocks away. It would be wise to be mindful of the elevation of the surrounding environment, as being bashed off a high cliff in Minecraft would certainly result in the player’s death.
Players can also farm Goat Horns by catching Goats with a Lead and bringing them to an enclosed location. However, capturing and confining them to a pen will be somewhat challenging, as they can jump much higher than a standard fence’s height. After successfully placing Goats into an inescapable enclosure, players can feed and breed the creatures using Wheat. Like the young of other neutral mobs in Minecraft, fans can continuously feed Kids to have them quickly mature into adults. Furthermore, Goats can also be milked with an iron bucket. Goat Milk shares the same properties as Cow Milk and can be used to remove status effects in Minecraft or bake Cakes.
Minecraft is available on PC, Android, iOS, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.
