Cows have a single stomach, but four different complicated digestive compartments.

Cattle — dairy and beef — have a specialized digestive system with four pouches – the reticulum, the rumen, the omasums, and the abomasums—each serving a specific purpose that allows them to utilize a diet primarily. As a ruminant, they regurgitate and re-chew their food.

Cows emit methane but don’t blame them for global warming.

When they are digesting their food, ruminants produce large quantities of methane, around 20% of global methane emissions. They have stomachs with several chambers, enabling them to regurgitate food from one chamber in order to reduce it in size by renewed chewing. That is why people had assumed till now that ruminants produce similar amounts of methane.
