The idyllic farming life of Hateno Village in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is facing new challenges due to the Upheaval. One of the village’s most popular commodities, cow milk, can now be acquired through a new trade avenue with the rancher Dantz. But before Link can access it, he must complete the Dantz’s Prize Cows side quest, which requires him to gather acorns to improve the milk’s quality.
Getting Acorns for Dantz’s Prize Cows Quest
Link can either scavenge or acquire three acorns to improve the milk quality. However, pesky squirrels are making it hard to find them. To obtain acorns, Link must take out three squirrels, either through a melee hit or arrows. Chopping down trees is another option, as acorns can drop from them. This can be combined with other quests, such as retrieving the recipe from the lake, to save time. Once Link has the acorns, he can take them back to Dantz and receive a free bottle of Fresh Milk. From then on, Dantz will offer three acorns for one Fresh Milk.
Uses of Milk in Tears of the Kingdom
Milk has various uses in Tears of the Kingdom, from basic consumption to cooking ingredients and even sticking it on arrows. Obtaining milk from Dantz can save rupees, especially for players who cook a lot of milk-based dishes. Since players will likely pass by the pasture frequently while completing quests in Hateno, it’s worth knocking off the Dantz’s Prize Cows quest from the checklist.
