i was stuck on this as well! i think it is because glycogen is needed by the body for excersie so if little or no glycogen is stored, then no glucose, which has been converted from the stored glycogen, can be supplied when the cows excersise, therefore they become tired. i'm not sure if this is entirely right but i hope it helps **
