Bucket Teat Unit
Bucket teat units were first introduced to the USA by Premier over 30 years ago. They have been the “gold standard” design ever since.
Feed orphan lambs, goat kids and calves by attaching teat unit to a square bucket. Teats sold separately. (See Accessories tab below.)
Use a bucket teat wrench to easily tighten or loosen the plastic gray “nut”.
When using buckets with pre-drilled holes, we’ll drill 1.5" diameter holes, for up to 6 teat units on 3 sides of the bucket. If you decide to drill your own holes, the hole should be 1.5" diameter, and 0.5" up from inside bottom of the bucket.
Teats sold separately.
Why so low? When a young ruminant stretches out its neck to nurse, their esophagus elongates and forms a groove that carries the milk into the 4th stomach (the abomasum).
If the neck is not stretched, the milk falls into the first stomach instead of the 4th. But the first stomach is intended for grass and hay. It doesn’t digest milk well. A first stomach with too much milk enlarges to form a “potbelly”—and the lamb/kid can’t thrive.
Mountable Teat Feeders (for welded wire panels or wall mounting) are an alternative DIY option.

Simple concept that is simple to install on flat buckets. Helps solve the problem of feeding multiple small goats at once.

I was a little disappointed with these bucket test unit. I had trouble with them not wanting to seal off when I screwed them on the bucket, thankfully I ordered extra washers so on some of them I had to put two washers on in order to seal it off. Besides that I’m happy with it, it sure beats trying to use bottles.

If you have bottle babies, this is the single best investment you can make. No more struggling with bottles and fighting with babies. Just pour the milk in the bucket and walk away.
