Cows are recurring animals in The Legend of Zelda series.
Ocarina of Time
In addition, in the Master Quest version only, there are cows trapped in the internal walls Inside Jabu-Jabu's Belly acting as switches. Where they are in the air, these will also give Lon Lon Milk from playing Epona's Song to them.

In Majora's Mask, cows can be found in the open during the day at Romani Ranch, but are moved to the barn at nightfall. The magic power in, and sought-after taste of, Chateau Romani is said to be a result of special Romani Ranch cows bred by the father of Cremia, the current ranch owner, and her young sister Romani. They will try to abduct the cows on the Night of the First Day - if Link does not help Romani to drive Them away until dawn, she will also be abducted, and returned traumatised and with her memory wiped.
As in Ocarina of Time, standard Milk can be obtained by playing Epona's Song in front of a cow. Cows are also present in two Secret Grottos, and Beneath the Well, where milk is required to enter another of the rooms.
At night, the cows are brought into the barn. Note that they disappear if They are not stopped on the Night of the First Day.
