Udderly EZ™ Milker
Hand-powered sheep and goat milking machine makes lambing and kidding season easier on your hands and the teats of your ewes and does.
A few pumps creates a seal allowing the teat valve to open and release milk. The flow is not rapid, but effective.
Speed-up and simplify the collection of:
- Colostrum for newborn lambs and goat kids
- Excess milk from ewes or does for freezer storage
- Milk for your family’s use, reduce strain on your hands!
Designed with input from shepherds, herdsmen, veterinarians and farm managers from around the world.
Milker Kit includes:
- Udderly EZ™ Pump
- 8 oz Bottles (2)
- 16 oz Bottle
- Bottle Nipple (color may vary). This teat fits right on the Udderly EZ bottle of your choice. No more having to milk in one bottle and then transferring the milk or colostrum to another bottle for feeding. What this means is no more cross contamination from bottles.
- Small Silicone Insert (green) with #2 Extraction Tube
- Medium Silicone Insert (blue) with #2 Extraction Tube
- Teat Wipes
- Towel, microfiber
How to Use
- Always, clean the udder area, using the Udderly EZ Wipes provided in your kit, to remove any accumulated dirt and bacteria.
- Gently remove the wax plug from the end of the teat so it does not drop into the bottle.
- Manually strip each teat at least twice to get a good flow of milk started. Dampen each teat or use bag balm to help secure vacuum.
- Place the cylinder directly over the teat and gently lift the pump unit against the udder.
- Squeeze the handle at least 2-3 times, this will start the vacuum seal process, locking the unit onto the animal's udder. You may want to hold bottle with free hand and tilt inward or towards the top of the pump until sealed.
- As soon as the milk flow starts, stop pumping! When the flow slows or stops, start pumping again. You may need to repeat this sequence 3-4 times.
- To release the vacuum on the pump, push bottle backwards toward hand trigger to release vacuum lock. Do not pull pump off udder.
- The first milking will generally collect between 8-12 ounces of colostrum, although this may vary with each animal species or breed.
- If the mother does not let her milk down immediately, you may have to massage her udder gently to get the flow started. Push the entire pump and bottle up into the bag (like a baby bunting it's mom while nursing) and let the weight settle back down and be careful not to break the vacuum seal.
- Do not overfill the collection bottle, only fill to the indicated line on the bottle. Never tilt pump backwards. This will allow the milk or colostrum to run into the air intake hole and damage the diaphragm in the pump.
- Place the nipple directly onto the bottle and feed directly to the newborn. All our bottles are Freezer safe, just apply cap and place in freezer. DO NOT THAW OUT IN MICROWAVE!

The kit fixed up my milking device as I broke the handle. It has always worked well for me. A little trick we use here is to wet the tit area where we want contact and the top of the milker so it has good contact. Milk always flows good for me.

May be the best investment for the lambing barn I have ever made! We have always hand milked the ewes to tube babies if we are unsure they have nursed or as soon as place in jugs which we try to do within 2 hours of birth. This has made this process, especially at 3 a.m. so much faster and easier!!!

Does not have enough suction to pull milk from teets. I have tried all angles and pushing up into teet bag without success. I have placed it on my hand as well but seems to not have enough suction either.

Not so sure I like it. I tried it on my Finn/Dorset ewe and just could not get it to work. I then watched all the videos I could find, talked with the manufacturer, tried it again—well I got something to come out—like one squirt.
So, I decided it try it in my goat—took the insert out and just used to outer tube. It worked, but painfully slow. I'm not sure who was more irritated, me or the goat. They filled up so fast on the videos.
I really want it to work and would love for someone to show me how to make it work. I made sure to wet the end of it for better suction. I just find it frustrating and end up hand milking.

Great product... makes first initial udder flow a easy process.
