Red Rubber Teats
How to Use
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.

They work great. No leaks, tough for bigger lambs.

I always use these after the latex red teats start getting chewed through. Have no trouble transitioning over if the lamb is big enough. They stand up well to lamb teeth if you keep the milk bucket full. Otherwise the lambs tend to just chew on the teats and they eventually get holes, but there isn't a teat out there that will stand chewing by a bored, perpetually hungry lamb. If they have hay, or novel things that are safe to chew on, that are hung on the pen, they don't bother the teats as much.
Excellent with the cold milk system!

I love them! The feed buckets and the rubber teats work great. I have used many different types of feeders over the years and this is by far the best yet. The ease and durability is outstanding. We have been using two buckets with red rubber teats feeding ten bum lambs for a month now with no problems at all. Excellent product.

These red rubber teats seem well made but my lambs preferred the natural latex teats at 20 days of age. I bought both kinds because the rubber is supposed to be tougher, and is, but so far I am keeping my lambs on the softer teats. They are 28 days old now. I will have to try the rubber teats again because the lambs do try to chew.
