Udderly EZ™ Milker
• 1-16 oz bottle & 2-8 oz bottles
• EZ Wipes
• Instructional CD
- Wait up to 30 seconds for the ewe to relax enough to release milk.
- Once suction has been obtained, "bump" the milker into the udder - similar to the motion a lamb would make if nursing.
- When suction is obtained - try positioning the milker from various angles (also apply the "bump" concept while doing this).
- Try a few more squeezes than is advised if milk flow slows.
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.
Thank you for using our products.

So far so good. The pump works well on hard to handle ewes. I got more milk/colostrum than I ever got by milking by hand. The device is all plastic but seems to be holding up well for me. I like the ease of handling the pump and assembly. One of my ewe's teats was too large to fit in the plastic sleeve provided with the pump; but it seems to do okay without it (no leaking into the pump). I agree with a prior review -- the price of the pump is about the value of 1 saved lamb; so, it's a good investment. I wish some of the parts were metal for durability, instead of plastic. But overall this is a great product.

I LOVE my EZ Milker, so ordered a replacement bottle for it. I don't recommend using the bottles as feeding bottles, only for collection. They don't hold up to being frozen or warmed up.

Wonderful till the dog ate the tube part that tasted like milk. My fault for setting it on the counter rather than in the sink.
I now have the new part but lambing for me is over this year. I will be buying another and parts next year.

We used the pump on our lactating ewes. The pump worked very well for a few days, but unfortunately the pump is not sturdy. The plastic parts, mainly the clip holding the bottle and the pump attachement broke very quickly. There has to be a redesign of that clip using a metal part that can lock and not get broken when the ewes fight it a bit.

Okay- so I fought this for a long time. I only milk ewes for a supply of colostrum to keep on hand or if the lambs seem weak- I am not using this to make cheese or milk cows. It seems a little pricey for a milker. I can hand milk for free, I even tried a breast pump that I got for $20. I got kicked, upset the ewes, lambs got stepped on and almost always ended with swears and tears. My business partner told me his was a great time saver (he uses one for every ewe in his 30 ewe operation). My husband told me it was worth the price if it saved one lamb. So, before lambing last year I purchased one.
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!
