Moo I say!

Brahmin are creatures in Fallout.


One of the major food sources and forms of transportation in the wasteland.[1][Pub 1] They are not considered dangerous.[2] Brahmin are used for meat and milk.[3][Pub 2] They are capable of carrying up to 500 lbs, have eight-compartment stomachs, and four testicles.[4][5][Pub 3] Their waste serves as a fertilizer.[6] In the New California Republic, herding brahmin is an industry and brahmin barons influence politicians and laws. Occasionally, a brahmin is born with a single head and are called "mono-headed Brahmin."[7]

  2. Vault Dweller: "{113}{}{What's the spear for? Are they dangerous?}"
    Billy: "{132}{}{Dangerous? No, not really. They can give you a really nasty bite, but they're pretty cool. They fart and burp a lot. I don't know why.}"

Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Manual p.35: "Two headed cow: The two headed cow the standard livestock for the wasteland farming communities, are two-headed cows that do little more than wander around, digest the tattered weeds that sprout in the dusty earth of the wasteland and fertilize. They also make excellent target practice, unless of course the farmer is around."
