The abomasum, also known as the maw, rennet-bag, or reed tripe, is the fourth and final stomach compartment in ruminants It secretes rennet, which is used in cheese creation

The word abomasum is from New Latin and it was first used in English in 1706 It comes from Latin ab- + omasum "intestine of an ox," and it is possibly from the Gaulish language

The abomasum's normal anatomical location is along ventral midline It is a secretory stomach similar in anatomy and function as the monogastric stomach It serves primarily in the acid hydrolysis of microbial and dietary protein, preparing these protein sources for further digestion and absorption in the small intestine

Dairy cattle on high production diets are susceptible to a number of pathologies, most commonly after calving A gas-filled abomasum can move into an abnormal location, resulting in left-displaced abomasum LDA or right-displaced abomasum RDA If the abomasum displaces to the right, it is at risk of torsion and becoming a right torsioned abomasum RTA A displaced abomasum will cause cows to present all or some of the following signs: loss of appetite, decrease rumen contractions, decrease cud chewing, and drop in milk production While an LDA and RDA are not immediately life-threatening, veterinary care is required for surgical correction Milder cases can be corrected by rolling the cow over or forcing her to run up a steep hill Abomasitis is a relatively rare, but serious, disease of the abomasum whose causes are currently unknown

The abomasum is used to make the lampredotto, a typical dish of Florence It is also fried and eaten with onions as part of the Korean dish Makchang gui Another dish made with the abomasum is Turkish Şırdan
