In this regard, what human food can cows eat?

Can cows eat carrots?
Carrots are quite palatable and readily consumed by cattle. Feeding high levels of fresh carrots may cause some scouring which can be minimized by storage for a few weeks. Carrots can also serve as an energy source in cow diets. A report indicated cows will eat up to 35 lb of carrots per day.
