How does this relate to agriculture? What is Animal Digestion If you said: breaking down then you are correct

The actual definition is: process of breaking down food into simple substances that can be absorbed by the body Another part of digestion is absorption:

-process of taking the digested parts of food into the bloodstream What is Animal Digestion?

A. breaking down of food B. breaking down of liquid C. breaking down of air Correct! Great job! The definition of animal digestion is: process of breaking down food into

simple substances that can be absorbed by the body Incorrect Good try but please try again Click the arrow to return to the question and

try again Digestive Systems The digestive system consists of the parts of the body involved in chewing and digesting food. Digested food moves through the animals body and

absorbs the products of digestion 4 basic types monogastric (simple)

ruminant (polygastric) pseudo-ruminant avian Monogastric or simple contains a single-chambered stomach found in humans, swine, dogs, and cats. Monogastric

What animals have a monogastric system? Correct! Great Job! Pigs, dogs, cats and humans have a

monogastric digestive system Incorrect Good try but please try again Click the arrow to return to the question and try again

Ruminant or polygastric One large stomach divided into four compartments found in cattle, sheep, and goats.

An animal with this kind of digestive system is called a ruminant Digestive systems The rumen is the largest section of the stomach 60% of the stomach.

Contains bacteria and other microbes that promote fermentation Food is ingested, eructated (belched up), chewed, and then swallowed again Digestive systems

The reticulum Has honeycomb-like ridges Aids in keeping the food in the rumen mixed with water and saliva Until it is the right consistency Once the right consistency is reached, the mixture can pass on into the lower digestive tract

Digestive systems The omasum is a small compartment Main sight for water absorption particles are squeezed and dehydrated, as well

as sorted The compartment acts as a filter for the abomasum Digestive systems The abomasum, or true stomach, is the site of digestion

Secretes gastric juices consisting of hydrochloric acid and pepsin The abomasum is similar to the stomach in a monogastric animal Ruminant Digestive System

What are the four chambers of a ruminant stomach? Correct! Great Job!! Rumen, Reticulum, Omasum, and

Abomasum Incorrect! Good try but please try again Click the arrow to return to the question and try again

Pseudo Ruminant A pseudo-ruminant can utilize large amounts of roughages because of its greatly enlarged cecum and large intestine Examples of pseudo-ruminants are horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, and hamsters.

Pseudo Ruminant Why can pseudo ruminants consume large amounts of forages? Correct! Great Job!

Pseudo ruminants can consume large amounts of forages because their enlarged cecum. Incorrect Good try but please try again

Click the arrow to return to the question and try again Digestive systems The avian digestive system

Found in poultry. Since a bird has no teeth, no chewing is involved The esophagus empties directly into the crop. Digestive systems The crop is where the food is stored and soaked

From the crop, the food makes its way to the gizzard The gizzard-very muscular organ-which normally contains stones or grit that grinds the food Digestion in the avian system is very rapid

Avian Digestive Name two important parts of the avian digestive system where the food is stored and where the food is broken down.

Correct! The crop stores the food and the gizzard breaks it down. Incorrect
