No, it costs 5 energy per milk. Even if you fail.

5 energy if you succeed, 2 if you fail. That's why milk is always sold out when someone is dumb enough to sell it.

If you need a lot of milk for mass production, that wont be enough. Not even close. When I cook a big batch of something like x800-1000 foods, I get max 35-50 milk from tokens.

Best is placing 1-2 alts near the cow place and use their daily energy on milking, since gathering level doesn't matter.

The only exception I can think of to this is if you have a fence and plant a haysack and then harvest from the cow :c then you get milk and meat... I think something else as well? but can't remember xD.

You also get Ox Hide. You always get 20-40 milk and you may randomly (and not that often) get meat and hide. I got 9 cows and get 120-130 milk per harvest, maybe even more. I use  the best (blue) quality haystacks.

There are 3 places with daily milk quests that I use, Bain and Falres Farm near Calpheon, and near Wales Farm in Olvia, extra 30 milk per day adds up. I think there is also another in Mediah but the lvl req was like 50, and I don't really lvl alts.

I use 4 farms with haystacks on it, and get 50-60 milk per harvest from 1 with a special proc of 120-150 every now and then. There are always better ways to do things (the special proc depends on farming rank, get to proffessional and they will start comin

Milking does not give exp unfortunately, it does not help you level your character or your gathering, its strictly energy for milk. The daily quests that give some additional milk do give gathering exp as a reward, but it doesn't really matter to me because I have alts doing the gathering, not my main character who is the gatherer.

Basically imo, the best way to gather milk is to station 3 alts at Bains, Falres, and Wales Farm, and just log on every day to milk 5 times each character (a day's worth of offline alt energy), while claiming the extra daily 10 milk at each location. Each milking gives around 5-10 milk in my experience, so milk production should equal to about 130-140 milk per day.

If you want to cook in any significant amount, this much milk production is pretty much nothing, so I'm really just hoarding my milk until I really really need it
