Hi Micha, thanks for reporting.

I killed and skinned a white cow two days ago near the northern coast without any issues. Can you indicate what knife you used? Perhaps it was just where the cow died that somehow you couldn't access the "Skin and quarter" indicator?

Maybe try to reproduce the issue? I will try it again as well.

I can for sure say I used a combat knife. Condition probably "worn". Tried to crouch around the cow but it was impossible to get the dialog to skin and quarter. this happened again yesterday but again only with a white cow. the brown ones it works great. I know it's no showstopper, but since DayZ want to become more a survival game again, I think this should be investigated. Yes, I will try again with more knifes and a stone knife as well.

I always face with this issue. It happens with most of animals. Try to skin cow's body from the head side. Sit in front of head and search for skinning text. Good luck!!!
