Udderly EZ™ Milker
Makes obtaining colostrum from a difficult ewe or doe less of an "athletic event".
A few pumps creates a seal allowing the teat valve to open and release milk. The flow is not rapid, but effective.
Use for collecting colostrum and milk from ewes & does.
For animals with small teats: The package with rubber inserts (#556111) is needed or you can purchase inserts individually (#556115 or #556116). For goats order quart bottles (#556112).
|How to use||
ATTENTION!! Our new Silicone Inserts, (Liners) have arrived!!
Please read this Product information thoroughly.
At EZ Animal Products we are continually listening to our customers and are always trying to upgrade the Udderly EZ Milkers.We have found better Silicone Inserts to go into the #2 (large) extraction tube.
The top part of the Silicone Insert is flared at the point where it goes into the top of the hard plastic tube. This virtually eliminates any air leakage from around the top of the tube. (And is easier to assemble) Both the large and small Silicone Inserts fit into the same #2 Tube. (They will not fit into the #1 Tube) We are still including the #1 Tube into each kit because in some instances you may want to use it without an insert. Besides one being bigger than the other, each hard plastic tube is embossed with the number on the front of it.
Please Note: When inserting the large Silicone Liner into the #2 Tube, once you have it seated, you will notice that the top of it is still a little above the top lip of the extractor tube. Just push it down and it will seat around the top of the extractor tube. We will show this in the instructional video that we are working on at the present
It is still possible to milk most any animal without the inserts but they stop the possibility of any milk/colostrum from getting drawn into the pump.
REMEMBER!! Both Silicone Inserts now fit into only the #2 hard Plastic Extractor Tube.

I should have purchased one sooner! Once you get the hang of it- it is fantastic. Put it on the teat, pump it just until the milk starts to flow, pump it two more times then hold it so it just hangs on the teat- the milk flows out. If the ewe kicks it off- no spilled milk to cry over- you just pick up the unit and get back to work. I have a few ewes that will just not let down their milk, but do just fine with their lambs (they have milk- it just won't pump out). But in most cases- it works great!
I used it a bunch last season and my neighbor borrowed it a bunch too. I just used it on my first ewe this season and it is still working great! I cannot believe I fought it for so long!
We purchased and used two Udderly EZ milkers for our milk cow. We bought two thinking we could use them both at the same time and cut down the time it takes to milk. This did work for a couple months before the problems started. We just kept having parts break. The little rubber valves don't last too long and are expensive to replace. Both our handles broke within a short amount of time. These are also expensive to replace. The bottle clip on one broke, so we went down to using one pump with the working bottle clip. Then, the back part of the pump blew out. It was only connected by flimsy plastic clips and these just wore down and finally snapped off. So I duct taped the back of the pump on and this worked ok. Kept having to replace the duct tape though as it would lose tightness after a few washings. Then it got to the point where I could not tape it on tight enough to create the vacuum. We started using the other pump and the same thing happened to it. Now the whole setup is basically worthless as I am not forking over another $100 to replace the pump. This all happened within 4-6 months.
I think these are neat little milkers, but probably should be used more for backup milking if power is out, or colostrum collection only. Their website states these milkers can be used for daily milking, but we have not found this to be the case. We could have bought a small bucket milker for the money we have put into the Udderly EZ. Would not recommend for daily milking. Oddly enough, I was most worried about having to replace bottles. We only lost one bottle during those 4-6 months. The bottles do seem to hold up well but are useless without the rest of the assembly.
The bottle clip is not durable and seems to get more brittle with age. I find the bottles hard to clean, and the bottle cap liners and bottle seals are not ideal.
Works fairly well but pricey for occasional use.
The Udderly EZ Milker could be built to be more durable. The clip that holds the bottle breaks more easily than ideal--especilly if cold. However, I would not be without one.
Easy to clean.
With the price of lambs at an all time high, saving just one pays for this handy item.
and just got to use it this week. It appears to be a high quality unit. It takes a little bit of practice to get familiar with using this product. More familiarization that anything else. I have used it 3 times and this time was very easy and I collected a whole bottle of colostrum in a couple of minutes. The
hardest thing is restraining the ewe while milking her. I used to get a couple of ounces milking them by hand and this product is much better. I am very happy so far.
