Correspondingly, what fruits can cows eat?
The answer is YES. Our cows LOVE fruits and vegetables. They usually eat hay (more on that here), but they love when we give them sweet corn (usually cows eat field cornthe kind people can't eat and is mostly consumed by livestock) or apples or watermelon rinds.

All these were highly valued by the cows I have known.
