An easy to use tool. Uses an esphageal probe to administer fluids and nutrients directly into the rumen. Permits relatively fast administration of liquids without regurgitation. A Fluidfeeder gives cattlemen a practical, easy-to-use tool that helps save baby calves. Using a Fluidfeeder is a simple, one man operation that requires no special training.
The Magrath Fluidfeeder features reinforcement at the bottle cap which permits one-handed administration of colostrum and life-saving fluids to newborn calves. The stainless steel probe crimps at the neck to stop the flow while the user inserts the esophageal tube, a feature designed to help prevent accidental insertion into the trachea. The semi-flexible bottle is then turned upright and fluids flow into the calf. 1 quart bottle.
Scoured, dehydrated calves – even those that will not eat or drink – get the supportive fluids and energy they need to recover fast.
