stomach - the bovine stomach is one, large, compartmentalized complex stomach consisting of four interconnected compartments (or pouches): the rumen, the reticulum, the omasum, and the abomasum.
Three of these compartments (rumen, reticulum, omasum) are nonglandular (i.e. non-secreting), and one compartment (abomasum) is lined with glandular mucosa (i.e. secreting mucous membrane).
At 18 months of age, the average bovine stomach has a 55 gallon capacity. The approximate capacity percentages are:
the rumen - 80%
the reticulum - 5%
the omasum - 7%
the abomasum - 8%

The Mazandarani (aka Iranian Zebu, Gilani, Gilan) was initially selected for work purposes. But since tractors have taken over that task in most areas, it is now selected for beef and dairy use.
The five varieties of Iranian Zebu cattle are:
the Bami
the Dashtiari
the Khorsan

omasum - third compartment (or pouch) in the stomach; positioned between the reticulum and the abomasum. While allowing water to pass freely, the omasum acts as a filter by keeping larger food particles from passing. These particles flow back through the reticulum to the rumen for further digestion.
Food that is small enough in size will then pass through the omasum to the abomasum.
The omasum is nicknamed ‘the book’ and ‘manyplies’ because it has multiple layers (or plies) which resemble the pages of a book. There are about 100 omasal laminae in four orders of size; these laminae are covered with conical papillae (small finger-like structures which absorb nutrients).
