how do you tell if a cow will yield high quality leather? i really want to have the best leather jacket possible so i think im gonna buy a cow, kill it/sell the meat, and then make a couple leathers with the skin. itll be less than a CCP, and if i pick the right cow it will have better leather.
Stalk a pregnant cow until it gives birth...then before the calf can open its eyes, cut its throat. Skin it as fast as you can. Better if you do it by the light of the full moon.
