Drench Mate I

The Drench-Mate is a unique, high quality pumping system specifically designed for pumping fluids into ruminants. This single dose system is a 6.5 gallon bucket with a screw top lid with a 11.5 foot poly-hose and a cam-lock fitting for easy detachment. The new locking frick tube holds the hose so that the it does not slip out of the rumen while you are pumping. A nose tong is attached to the frick tube to hold fick tube in place. A red mark on the hose indicates how far it should be inserted into the rumen. Mounted on top is a hand diaphragm pump that has the capacity to drench a cow in an estimated time of about a minute. The Drench-Mate is made of hardened plastic and stainless steel hardware so it will not rust or corrode.

How It Works

To open turn pump and lid assembly counter clockwise. Fill the bucket with warm water and drenching product. Mix thoroughly. To close, point handle of pump to handle of bucket, and turn clockwise 180o. Insert Frick Spectrum Tube and attach nose lead into nostrils. Slide poly hose through Frick Spectrum Tube into rumen. Turn the new frick tube to the lock position to prevent hose from slipping. (Red mark on hose indicates approximate distance from rumen for a mature Holstein cow) Attach cam-lock fitting to pump end. Begin pumping, using entire drench solution. Tilt bucket toward inlet near end of drenching process. Rinse and flush entire system with clean hot water after each use.
