Cows eat grass, which is made of cellulose, so it makes perfect sense biochemically to make a model of a cow out of wood, which is made of cellulose. For those who would like to know more about bovine digestion and have a learning style that works best with intricate, life-sized mechanical contraptions (and after all who doesn't fall in that category), I give you the Wooden Cow Which Eats Orange Spheres:

I'm not sure where this falls on the science/education/art continuum, but all I know is I'm digging the style.
