How is Steak the best food source in Minecraft?
Steak is the best food source in Minecraft because of a few important factors. Any food source which is easily available can be produced in large quantities, and also fill the hunger and stamina bar. The steak is cooked beef. You can get beef by killing cows in Minecraft. Cows need wheat to breed. Wheat is a crop in Minecraft which not only grows fast but when you harvest it, it gives a lot of seeds. Enough seeds that you can double your production after every harvest.
How to build a Cow Farm to get the best food source in Minecraft?
To start making steak, you need to make a cow farm where you would breed the cows and eventually kill them for leather and steak. The cows also give milk which is useful to remove poison or remove the raider bannerman tag. Once you kill a Raider Banner Man, you get tagged and become a target. If you drink milk it removes the tag.
To start a Cow farm you need to make small fencing, at least a 3 by 3 fencing with a door. Now you have to take Wheat and use it to lure cows into the fencing. All you have to do is find a cow and hold wheat in your hand. The cow will follow you wherever you go, but make sure you are close to the cows. If you move fast and increase the distance between you and the cows, it will cause the cows to lose interest and walk away.
You need to lure at least 2 cows inside the fencing, if you can lure more feel free to do so, but do not go running around to find cows as 2 cows are enough. Once you feed them with wheat inside the fence you will see a pair of cows close to each other and hearts floating. Make sure you do not disturb them or feed them as they are breeding. This guarantees that they will multiply. A few seconds later you will see a calf (baby cow) spawn. If you feed it with wheat it will grow faster. Repeat this process another time and you will end up having a total of 4 cows on your small farm.
Note: Wait for 5min (IRL time) and then feed the cows. As they have a cool downtime of 5 min. It takes 20min (IRL time) for a calf to become a cow.
Now that you have 4 cows, wait for 5min and then feed all 4 cows at once. Continue this process as many times as you like. Once the fencing is crowded you can milk the cows and then kill a few for leather and beef. When killed, a cow can drop up to 2 pieces of leather, as well as up to 3 pieces of raw beef. Remember only kill a few cows as you want to breed the remaining again and few faster results.
You can also try to increase the fencing and breed more cows, as the more cows you have the bigger multiples you get. Let’s for example assume you have 20 cows, which make it 10 pairs. Feeding 10 pairs of cows will result in 10 calves which will eventually become cows and give you a total of 30 cows which is 15 pairs. Repeating this process will result in you having a ton of cows.
The best food source is food that is easily available, can be produced in large quantities and has a significant impact on the Health and Hunger bar, of course to the positive side. Steak is the best food source in Minecraft, both for early games as well as late games. Continue reading to find out how to make a lot of steaks.
