Flat Back Latex Teats
Latex teats have the most “teat-like” feel. Soft latex is easier to nurse than rubber teats for small lambs and goat kids, but they are less durable. They are the best choice only until days 8–10.
Due to flat-back design, a washer (#565100) is included with each nipple. Use the washer to help prevent leakage between the bucket wall and the teat unit.
- Dimensions: 2" x 1-3/8"
- Natural latex color
- (1) washer is included with each nipple
If the milk flow seems too slow, take a Pocket Scalpel (or other sharp knife) and enlarge the “X” slit in the end of the teat. Be careful! Do NOT cut the end too large or the milk will constantly leak out.
Cannot be used on soda pop bottles.
Do NOT leave empty bottles or bucket feeders in the orphan pen. Lambs and kids will chew on nipples (in an attempt to feed) and damage the teats. A habit that is not easily reversed.

To start kids this nipple is too hard to get milk out. Maybe older kids will be ok.

I much prefer the latex nipples for the bucket. It is much easier to get the babies to switch from a bottle.

Great way to start young lambs and goats on the “teat bucket” system… need to switch to the red nipple when they get older, more aggressive and they have teeth!

Usually once the lamb has sucked on the Pritchard Teat I then put them on the Premier bucket with this latex teat at first, with a couple rubber teats off to the side so they get used to them for when they are older. I find they start on these much quicker than going right on the rubber ones first.
Older lambs will chew these, especially if the bucket runs empty so have some red rubber ones ready for later on.

Best teat for getting kids to transfer from a bottle to the bucket.
