When you see a cow, most likely the things you first notice are an animal weighing more than 1,000 pounds, with a head, tail, and four legs. But if you look closer you may notice a skeletal structure, an udder, and external reproductive components. There are many parts of a cow that make them the way they are; provide useful daily things for us people. More cow diagrams are posted in the following images.

The cow’s digestive tract consists of the mouth, esophagus, a complex four-compartment stomach, small intestine and large intestine. The stomach includes the rumen or paunch, reticulum or “honeycomb,” the omasum or “manyplies,” and the abomasum or “true stomach.” The oesophagus is a muscular tube that connects the mouth with the forestomach. Food passes down the oesophagus by contraction of the muscles in the walls that push the food along in a series of waves called peristalsis. Below is the butcher guide diagram version.
