Animal taming is a brand new feature in NMS’s Beyond update. This guide tells you how to harvest animal materials or How To Milk Animals In No Man’s Sky Beyond so you can acquire some unique materials from the animals you discover and get to making yourself some great recipes.
The term “milking” has been donned by the community as the harvesting action of creatures. Not all creatures provide milk but nearly all creatures, once tamed, can be used to harvest special materials only available from animals.
How To Milk Animals In No Man’s Sky BeyondOnce you have figured out how to tame an animal, the harvesting process is simple. Once an animal is tamed, you can instantly interact with them to harvest the material they offer. These little critters I tamed offered milk, but there’s a lot of other items you can harvest from animals.
If you can get them back to your base or you build items nearby, you can have a feeder in place that stops the animals leaving the area and a harvesting node that automatically harvests items from animals once they are ready.
