“RFE” Rumen Fluid Extractor


The Rumen Fluid Extraction System

This device gives the ability to extract rumen fluid via the esophagus of any cow, steer, calf, goat, or sheep. Complete system includes, the Rumen-Mate Bucket & Pump with the Rumen Fluid Extractor of your choice.


The Rumen-Mate, was designed to make the process of extracting rumen fluid from a donor cow simple and effective via the esophagus. This equipment makes it possible to collect the pure rumen fluid in a bucket a bit slower than with a fistulated cow. Then using the same bucket and pump, by only turning two valves, the healthy fluid is easily drenched into a sick cow.

Dr. Frank W. Abrahamsen utilized the “RFE” Rumen Fluid Extractor for Goats and Sheep to analyze the rumen fermentation in meat goats.

    The Rumen-Mate is a great addition in the Livestock Medicine and Surgery Service at CSU. It allows us to efficiently collect rumen fluid from a fistulated animal, with only one person. We used to use a syphon method for collecting rumen fluid from our donor animals. However, this method could be quite time consuming depending on the amount of fiber fill in the rumen. The Rumen-Mate is a simple and easy, requiring very little training.
