A little bit of energy is lost at each trophic level. For example, leaves do not collect all of the energy in sunlight; there are inefficiencies and limitations in photosynthesis which prevent this from occurring. The leaves themselves use the energy that they do collect to power cellular processes...
They use their tongue and lower incisors to rip grass from the ground. The long, thick tongue has bristles on it which enables the cow to grip the grass.

In most cases, it should be the exact opposite. For beef and especially dairy cows, a desirable feature or trait is to have a good to high milk yield.
