In summer, a lot of people enjoy eating corn at picnics. For example, on the Fourth of July here in America, people often have a barbecue and eat corn, as I'm sure a lot of you do.

However, corn can also be used as feed. By this, I mean it's used as food for animals, too. Cows, for example, are usually fed corn for four months before they are slaughtered.

And it's the fat that makes the beef taste good.
