Cows graze most of the day and eat large amounts of food. Cows have four stomach compartments. One of these stomachs is called the rumen. It is designed to  help these grass-eating animals digest their food. To get most possible nourishment out of grass, cows regurgitate their food and then chew it again. This called chewing the cud. There is also a special bacteria in the rumen to help with digestion.

Cautious is quite correct. Cows are ruminants, which generally have four stomachs, however Camels and some others only have three.
The first stomach is called the Rumen which softens the food initially, it then gets regurgitated as "cud" then once swallowed goes to one of the other stomachs. The other stomachs are called: the reticulum, omasum, and abomasum. Hope that clears this up for you MadBiker

No! you must know this fact that cows have only one stomach but that is a large stomach that's why it seems that they have many stomachs.

But the cow is a ruminant, and consequently it has many stomachs for processing regurgitated food.
