The Drench-Mate is a unique pumping system specifically designed for drenching ruminants, including cows and cattle. The Drench-Mate was designed for the sole purpose of making cow and cattle drenching easier, lowering the risk, taking less time and people to get the job done. There are several sizes to consider to accommodate your dairy.
The Drench-Mate I (single dose) was invented to improve upon the method of drenching and make it easy, safe and affordable. Due to the success of the single dose, ease of use and the big rewards dairymen received from drenching, we were asked by customers to build larger units that could accommodate 55, 150, and 300 gallons of drench. Our goal is to meet the needs for any dairy size-including custom designing.
Drench-Mate was invented by the current owner Bernie Mulder in the spring of 2000 after being challenged by a dairyman who did a lot of drenching but was unhappy with the existing technology used in the dairy industry. The first Drench-Mate prototype was very different from what it is today. Most of the improvements came over the first year or so after getting feed back from dairymen on what they liked and what they didn’t like.
After six years of building Drench-Mate equipment our customers and dealers asked if we could market a high quality drench product to market along side the equipment since Drench-Mate was getting to be a very recognized brand name. What has come out of that is the current Drench-Mate Drench. In the early spring of 2008 we recognized that there was also a need for a drench product that could be offered to cows minutes after calving as a voluntary drink without having to manually drench them. We now offer a Drench-Mate Drink that helps jump start those fresh cows immediately after calving.
We built our first units in the garage of our home and soon moved to small shop in Lynden, Washington and from there we grew into our current shop and office in Sumas, Washington where we build both our smaller Drench-Mate I as well as our larger units for large dairies. Drench-Mate is committed to serving the dairy industry with high quality products and great service.
