Study Notes

Cow Digestive Process

  • The process by which a cow chews the grass just enough to make it wet is called rumination, which takes place in the first part of its stomach, also known as the rumen.

Formation of Rumen Balls

  • In the second part of the cow's stomach, the partially digested food forms into little balls called rumen balls or cuds.

Food Passage

  • After the water gets squeezed out of the food in the cow's stomach, the remaining solid parts move into the next stomach compartment, the omasum, for further digestion.

Learn about the unique four-part digestive process of a cow's stomach, from the initial chewing to the final stages of digestion. Explore how the food is gradually broken down and processed at each stage.
