The Drench-Mate is a unique, high quality pumping system specifically designed for pumping fluids into ruminants. For the single dose system we have a 6.5 gallon bucket, a 11.5 foot poly-hose and a cam-lock fitting for easy detachment. A locking frick tube so that the hose does not slip out of the rumen while you are pumping. 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 1-1.5 minutes. The Drench-Mate is made of hardened plastic and stainless steel hardware so it will not rust or corrode.
To open turn pump and lid assembly counter clockwise. Fill the bucket with warm water and drenching product. Mix thoroughly. 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.
“After meeting the team from Drench-Mate at expo in 2019 and receiving samples of products, they have completely changed our post calving cow care! Since using the new drench and drench bucket our cows bounce back after calving so much faster. We also use the drench product on our sick cows and see remarkable recovery on those cows. We can’t thank the Drench-Mate team enough for their help and amazing products!”
