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.

These nipples are great for our bucket system. They are tough and hold up pretty good. I say that because after the babies (goats) get older they tend to both suck and chew on the nipples which cause them to leak. No fault of the manufacture or Premier 1. Because they are a harder nipple the babies take a bit of time to take to them. We don't use the latex due to allergies in our home but I do wish that there was a slightly softer version for the newborn to 1 week old babies. I will buy again as needed though.

I was really excited to get my bottle goats on the bucket system to save us some time. I ordered these since they were supposed to last longer. While my goats took to them right away, the teats got destroyed in less than a day.

These are easier to seat without leaks than the latex. These are the teats to use after the lambs get older and are sucking on the latex already.
If you have trouble seating stretch the teat over the unit first before you screw the nut over the nipple.
Due to shipping being so expensive these days I try and have a couple years of these on hand.

Lasts longer and stands up to bucklings better than the latex nipples.

We are feeding 60 lambs and they really got after these nipples. The longer ones found on bottles were a fight to use but our lambs took to the rubber nipples immediately. So far we haven't tore one but we have back-ups in case.
