Square Bucket without lid, 2 gallon
Ideal for use with our bucket teat units for feeding orphan lambs and goat kids. We also use it to carry feed, mineral and water to lambs, goat kids and poultry. Can be used with our spiral poultry feeder.
Cover the bucket with an EzeLid (sold separately).
Note: Order buckets with drilled hole(s), if you want to use with bucket teat units or spiral poultry feeders.
To secure bucket firmly to a wall, use a bucket holder/mount so lambs and goat kids cannot easily knock the bucket around. If only feeding a few and looking for a less expensive option, see our Premier bucket holder.
- 7.75"H, 9.5"W
- 60m thick wall
- Easy to clean. Silky-smooth internal walls.
- Cost effective.
- Durable. Lasts several years with normal use.
How to Use
How high should bucket teat units be placed?
Not much higher than a mother's own teat (which is usually low). When a nursing ruminant newborn stretches out its neck, the esophagus forms a groove to carry the milk into the fourth stomach. If it doesn't, the milk falls into the first stomach (intended for grass/hay) instead of the fourth. This causes the first stomach to enlarge and form a potbelly. Place the bucket so the teat is as low as the teats on your ewes.

Thank heaven for sturdy square buckets at reasonable prices…
We’re using ours as a chicken waterer with a gravity cup waterer. They are leak-proof against a square bucket and the bucket is more space efficient against the wall of the coop. We are able to water from both sides and the front simultaneously, or a fit in a corner setup. Much cheaper to rig up myself from Premier 1 with an EzeLid and fence bucket holder than from bundles available on Amazon — also more customizable.
The bucket was easy to drill, easy to hang with the holder (on 1" metal bar horizontally through chain link on the side of a dog kennel setup) and easy to clean as needed. I keep the EzeLid top on to keep extra debris out, but it’s only latched on the front lip so I can lift up the back to add water via a funnel or check the water level through the fence without having to go into the run.
My only regret is that Premier doesn’t offer a 5 gallon option, but that might overwhelm the fence when full. Will just have to order another in the future.
