* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'': Minotaurs lactate constantly, so they need to be milked. Of course, they have human-like breasts rather than udders, since it's an {{ecchi}} comic.

* In ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', you can make any cow instantly produce a surplus of milk by playing Epona's Song on the ocarina while standing next to it. If you have an empty bottle, it'll let you fill the bottle with milk in gratitude for playing such a nice song.

In fiction, however, cows can be milked even when they haven't had any calves. Cows can be milked even when the weather is unsuitable for lactating. Cows in fiction lactate no matter what. The only time they'll stop is when sick, old, or starving. This is because cows are mainly known for producing milk. In video games where cows and their milk are a resource, this spares the logistics involving animal husbandry and managing the calves. Sometimes, udders are a WeaponOfChoice for the cow, with the milk being EdibleAmmunition.

* Miltank from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' is a cow Pokemon whose signature move is Milk Drink. It's also the source of the Moomoo Milk item. Miltank don't need to be pregnant (which only occurs while she's at a breeder as with all Pokemon). It doesn't even seem that any Pokemon ''are'' truly mammalian, as they reproduce through eggs and young Pokemon eat solids as soon as they're hatched.

*** Cows only give milk for two seasons before they need to be bred again. The quality and quantity of the milk also slow down just before they stop giving milk. This justifies the existence of bulls, whose entire purpose in the game are to impregnate cows. If you don't have bulls, you have to pay to borrow bulls from other farms. Also, if you buy cows, don't expect them to start lactating for you immediately, because you have to breed them first. According to Takakura, the reason why the cow you start the game with can lactate for free is because she just recently gave birth.

** Subverted in ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife''. The game strives to be more realistic than the rest of the series. Cows only give milk for two seasons before they need to be bred again. The quality and quantity of the milk also slows down just before they stop giving milk. In the original game, the goat can also only be milked for a period, but she can't be bred ''or'' sold. The only way to get rid of her was to let her die. ''[[DistaffCounterpart Another Wonderful Life]]'' and ''[[UpdatedRerelease A Wonderful Life: Special Edition]]'' fixed that by allowing her to be sold.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/MyTimeAtPortia'', cows start producing milk once they reach adulthood. You don't even need to actually milk them: bottles of milk will just appear in their pen overnight as long as you keep them happy and fed.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/RimWorld'' has several animals that regularly produce milk once they grow into adults. There's no need to keep males around unless you plan on breeding or eating them.
