Best Answer

If the animal has been killed shortly after, their muscles are cut off of their carcasses to be used for food for humans.

If you mean from the time the cow dies to when its body is fully incorporated into the soil, they can produce gases like methane and carbon dioxide as their bodies undergo decomposition.

- detritus feeders (worms, insects) eat the carcass and release the carbon energy which was in the cow, and through respiration and excretion they release the energy back into the atmosphere. So cows produce energy for other life when they die.

they usually release carbon back into the atmosphere that combines with oxygen to form carbon dioxide which is absorbed by plants to under go photosynthesis. so thus, the carbon helps in the continuation of the carbon cycle
