Today's useless fact - Do cows realty have four stomachs?
No. A cow has one stomach, but it has four chambers. That's
because grass is hard to fully digest and cows need a lot of
nutrients. A typical cow takes in 100 pounds of grass and 300
pounds of water a day. The food initially goes into the "rumen",
the first chamber of its stomach, where it is digested for a
while. Then the cow regurgitates it as cud and chews it to break
the grass up further. Then it swallows the mess into the second
stomach chamber, the "reticulum". From there, the food passes
leisurely through two more chambers, the "omasum" and the
"abomasum", before cruising down the intestines and heading back
to fertilize the meadow.
