Cows eat mainly grass and provide most of the milk that people drink in the world. I remember learning once that cows have four stomachs but apparently that is untrue, they have four digestive compartments. They chew the cud (partially digested food) for up to eight hours every day. Cows are sacred animals in India, and are red/green colour blind. A real cow can be quite a scary sight for a small toddler, but they can be very sweet if presented in the right way!
