Troughs can be used to feed livestock. Large troughs can feed pigs and sheep, small troughs only chickens. Grain can be placed in the trough by right-clicking the trough with the grain item in hand. Large troughs also accept dry grass, but larger quantities are required.

Troughs must be made using wooden boards, meaning they can only be made once players are capable of creating copper or better tools via smithing.

Small trough


After placing down a trough, players may fill the trough with various food items by right-clicking. Small troughs only accept grain, while large troughs accept more items. Different animals will eat different food items. Troughs can hold a maximum of 8 portions of food at a time.

Small troughs take one piece of grain per trough food portion. Large troughs take 2 pieces of grain or vegetables, or 8 pieces of dry grass, per trough food portion. Therefore, fully filling a large trough takes 64 pieces of dry grass, a full stack. Troughs do not accept mixed types of food, and must be emptied out before refilling with a different type of food.

Wild animals near placed and filled troughs will naturally be attracted towards it. One method of capturing animals for domestication is to place a filled trough inside a 2-block-high pit, so that animals can fall into the pit but not jump back out.
