In battle the forces of Nurgle can guide the beasts into battle, Once there the Spore Beast sets about killing all living matter in its viscinity. It does this by releasing toxic spores from its body, and through sheer brute force. Once dead it will disldge a segment of its body that will latch onto, and break down its victim's body. That segment will then return to its origin.
