Cows are female bovines who comprise the majority of cattle raised domestically for beef, leather, cheese and milk in Britannia and on Earth. They appear in Ultima VI, VII and Ultima VII Part Two.

Description[edit]

Unlike bulls, Britannian cows were generally docile and easy to handle and could long be found throughout the realm in rural areas well suited to animal husbandry. For reasons never made clear, this common livestock animal seemingly disappeared in the late Age of Armageddon, possibly having succumb alongside horses to contagion.

Lore[edit]
