As one of the first players to successfully herd a cow, there are a few things you need to know. Please add to this list if you know more. --JAD 16:21, 15 July 2007 (BST)

  1. Cows can be herded (moved to an adjacent empty square) using a cattle prod.
  2. A Cattle Prod can be made using an eel and a piece of wood.
  3. Cows do not always move when prodded because their paths are blocked by other animals -- keep a Cruel Blade handy to clear the way for them to move.
  4. If a cow moves, the prod does 0 damage.
  5. If a cow does not move, the cattle prod does damage (it has a damage base of 1).
  6. Thus far, I have successfully moved one cow two squares and killed two other cows
  7. In my experience, some cows move a lot while others never move (just die)
  8. You will need some place for the cow to move to, or it will not move.
  9. You may wish to limit the spaces the cow may move to.
  10. There are some squares the cow will not move onto (such as those around Dr. Karma, must not like pies on the lawn)
  11. Kittens can be herded as above.
  12. Make sure that you don't have any damaging pet by your feet or they might get a bit over-enthusiastic and kill your cow.

How to cash in cows

Herd as many cows as you can to the Cattle Yard. Once a cow is in a path adjoining the cattle yard, it is in a 'pen'. Go and get another until you have as many as you can find. Then, stand on the cattle yard and cash them in.
