Let's eat grass

I've noticed cows have so much meat in its body, how do they increase muscle mass by eating grass? Is grass rich in protein?

That's all cow's need for their diet to gain muscle mass. Grass is a producer so it is very healthy. Producers are plants/trees/flowers, etc. They get their energy directly from the sun.. As that energy gets past on, the amount of energy is reduced. The cow uses some of that energy and its body stores some, so they don't need meat in their diet like we do. For example when the cow eats the grass, and a person eats the cow, we aren't getting as much energy from the cow as the cow did from the grass. (because the cow already used up some of the energy from the grass)
