Feed first enters in Ruman. Ruman is the first compartment than reti comes. Feed goes in Ruman, returns back for regurgitation (mastication and swallowing)and goes back to reyticolum

I also agree with Mr. Raza. Beside this, I would like to say, that roughage digestion should be mentioned first than carbohydrate and protein, as ruminants are mainly fibre eating animals.
It is not clear, whether it is meant for some educational program to vet students or farmers. If it is for farmers, rather than sticking to anatomy and physiology, this should contain feeding guidelines also.

I think this is a good start to a practical guide to the ruminant digestive system and some common adverse conditions. I agree with the need to emphasize plant fiber digestion. I also think that making a more detailed description of the plant tissue and cell components would add to the level of understanding ruminant digestion for the reader.

Could you please give more information about the use of 300 gr of magnesium oxide powder to treat acidosis?

Why powder form and do you think that 300 gr/ cows/day is not very high quantities that have a laxative effect on ruminants?
