Do cows poop and pee out of the same hole?

No. The rectūm is located above the reproductive system. The vūlva is the external opening to the reproductive system.

The vūlva has three main functions: the passage of urine, the opening for mating and serves as part of the birth canal. Included in this structure are the lips and clītoris. The vūlva lips are located at the sides of the opening and appear wrinkled and dry when the cow is not in estrus.

Most of the reproductive structures can be palpated through the rectūm.
