The Ameglian Major Cow (sometimes casually known as Dish of the Day) is a domesticated species of sapient bovine-like life forms which are bred with a strong desire to be eaten, to the point that their whole mindset revolves around this idea.
They spend their days fattening themselves and will eagerly suggest parts of their bodies that could be consumed. They not only express happiness at this thought, but are actually offended by those who aren't willing to eat them.
