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.
Listed below are recommended optional components or related items. Your particular situation may require alternative recommendations. Please call and talk to our consultants if there are any questions at 800-282-6631.

Goats love it and it is so much easier than individual bottle feeding! Great product!!

Bucket feeding is so much more convient that bottle feeding. We begin our lambs at 2 days old on the bucket and these assemblies are super easy to use and clean.

The bucket teat unit works great. Easy to install. Does not leak and seems to be very sturdy. The lambs and goats love their new milk bucket!

I bought extra washers just because if I need it I will already have it. With hungry lambs depending on their bucket, a leaking worn washer would be a big problem. Cheap insurance to have some extras around.

I bought the entire bucket system for my goat babies. It was everything i hoped it would be . You might find parts that work as well and hold up as well , but I made one order and it all came to me , faster and at less cost than if I tried to build my own lamb bar . Finally , a product that I was not disappointed in . Thankyou Premier !
