Ruminants such as cows and buffaloes swallow their food hurriedly and then sit restfully and chew their food. Can you reason why?

Answer:
This is done for complete digestion of the food. When the food is swallowed by ruminants, it is only partially digested. It is then again chewed for its complete digestion.
