Milk is one of the most sought after Cooking Ingredients in BDO, but it is often called a “bottlenecked” item! What’s a poor Cook to do? Lets see what we can discover about BDO milk. 🙂


  • Obtain Milk:
    • Nodes: no nodes produce milk!!! (Where’s my Mama Bessi node?)
    • Cow Milking Minigame: requires player Energy and active time
    • Farming Haystacks: restricted by growth time, Haystacks, and CP, but mostly AFK
    • Marketplace: The easiest way to obtain Milk, is to order it on the Marketplace, but it may be sold out or too expensive
    • Witch’s Delicacy: a cooking byproduct—exchange 10 for 120 Milk
  • Milk is required for many of our favorite Cooking Recipes.

Cow Milking Minigame

Cow Milking Minigame costs 10 Energy for each attempt.

You have 30 Seconds to fill the Milk jar to 100%.

  • Walk up to a cow and press the R button.
  • Click the Left mouse button to begin
  • Press and hold down the correct mouse button to empty the udder with the most milk.
  • Dont let the milk level touch the red of the udder, or you will fail!

TIP: it’s NOT a race to see how quickly you can click back and forth between the left and right mouse buttons. Watch the milk level and carefuly time your clicks. Being too quick will make it more difficult.

BDO Milking Minigame

Look for a Daily Milking quest NPC at each of the Cow Farms.
