And there must be a limit on it too, otherwise the siegers will hit the entire castle with disease and wait it out for the defenders to die, then waltz in and claim the castle for themselves...
Also we must remember that using said cows uses up the livestock travelling with the army, perhaps you would have to group the cows into the army just for the purpose of using them as ammunition XD
The cows must come from somewhere, especially as all other ammunition is deducted from your resources (stone is used by catapults and such)
wich is also a major drawback, i think having to use your food supplies and a risk of killing your own army would balance this all out
