"Cow Corn" or animal feed is simply corn that is harvested later than sweet corn. "Cow Corn" is then dried and used for animal feed, or used in ethanol.

Field corn is a far less sweet for of corn and is not the same as sweet corn. It has more carbohydrates and is grown differently. Most corn will grow only one ear per stalk. Newer hybrids of field corn can grow two or three ears per stalk. It has a far drier taste then sweet corn.
