Compare wild animals to livestock,

C. compares wild animals (themselves) to the fat (of livestock) and is therefore wrong.

I got B. is that correct?

I think you are correct, i also feel the same ...
In B the comparison is correct, whereas C compares wild animals to "that of live stock" meaning fat of livestock

Lets break this down...

Wild animals have less total fat than "that" of livestock fed on grain

What does that refer to? If it is fat as is claimed...

The sentence would read

Wild animals have less total fat than fat of livestock fed on grain - Thats an incorrect comparison because it compares Wild Animals with Fat of Livestock fed on grain
