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.
