What are the names of cows' four stomachs?


Answer by  Kris (797)

Cows have one stomach, but it has four compartments that do different things to the food. The first one, the rumen, is where grass is kept for further chewing. The next is the reticulum, or "tripe", where bacteria break down the food. Then there's the omasium, where enzymes start digestion, and the abomasium, which digests food further with acid.

1. Rumen - this is the largest part and holds upto 50 gallons of partially digested food. 2. Recticulum - this part of the stomach is called the 'hardware' stomach. 3. Omasum - this part of the stomach is a 'filter'. 4. Abomasum - this part of the stomach is like a humans stomach and is connected to the intestines.

Contrary to popular belief, cows only have ONE big stomach that is separated into four COMPARTMENTS called the "rumen" (this is the largest compartment), "reticulum", "omasum" and "abomasum". The cud is regurgitated from the rumen, chewed again and then goes through the other three compartments to finish digesting and breaking down the tough cellulose that comprises a cow's diet.
