Udderly EZ™ Milker
Hand-powered sheep and goat milking machine makes lambing and kidding season easier on your hands and the teats of your ewes and does.
A few pumps creates a seal allowing the teat valve to open and release milk. The flow is not rapid, but effective.
Speed-up and simplify the collection of:
- Colostrum for newborn lambs and goat kids
- Excess milk from ewes or does for freezer storage
- Milk for your family’s use, reduce strain on your hands!
Designed with input from shepherds, herdsmen, veterinarians and farm managers from around the world.
Milker Kit includes:
- Udderly EZ™ Pump
- 8 oz Bottles (2)
- 16 oz Bottle
- Bottle Nipple (color may vary). This teat fits right on the Udderly EZ bottle of your choice. No more having to milk in one bottle and then transferring the milk or colostrum to another bottle for feeding. What this means is no more cross contamination from bottles.
- Small Silicone Insert (green) with #2 Extraction Tube
- Medium Silicone Insert (blue) with #2 Extraction Tube
- Teat Wipes
- Towel, microfiber
How to Use
- Always, clean the udder area, using the Udderly EZ Wipes provided in your kit, to remove any accumulated dirt and bacteria.
- Gently remove the wax plug from the end of the teat so it does not drop into the bottle.
- Manually strip each teat at least twice to get a good flow of milk started. Dampen each teat or use bag balm to help secure vacuum.
- Place the cylinder directly over the teat and gently lift the pump unit against the udder.
- Squeeze the handle at least 2-3 times, this will start the vacuum seal process, locking the unit onto the animal's udder. You may want to hold bottle with free hand and tilt inward or towards the top of the pump until sealed.
- As soon as the milk flow starts, stop pumping! When the flow slows or stops, start pumping again. You may need to repeat this sequence 3-4 times.
- To release the vacuum on the pump, push bottle backwards toward hand trigger to release vacuum lock. Do not pull pump off udder.
- The first milking will generally collect between 8-12 ounces of colostrum, although this may vary with each animal species or breed.
- If the mother does not let her milk down immediately, you may have to massage her udder gently to get the flow started. Push the entire pump and bottle up into the bag (like a baby bunting it's mom while nursing) and let the weight settle back down and be careful not to break the vacuum seal.
- Do not overfill the collection bottle, only fill to the indicated line on the bottle. Never tilt pump backwards. This will allow the milk or colostrum to run into the air intake hole and damage the diaphragm in the pump.
- Place the nipple directly onto the bottle and feed directly to the newborn. All our bottles are Freezer safe, just apply cap and place in freezer. DO NOT THAW OUT IN MICROWAVE!

I needed a quicker method of milking our Nigerian Dwarf goats since hand milking was taking too long. We only milk two goats, so I didn't need a large electric machine. That's when I came across this product and it works great! It is very user friendly and I was very impressed at the amount of milk I got in a short amount of time. I use the small, green colored size for our goats. I highly recommend this product, especially if you only have a few goats to milk but want to save time. Only downside is that it's a little pricey, but it is nice that you can buy replacement parts individually.

My first freshner goat has a beautiful, full udder, but very small teats, and combined that with her reluctance to be milked at all, I am struggling to milk her. Our vet told me about this milker, and said he thought it could help. However, I have not found it to be helping me. Even when I definitely have suction, I am getting no or very little milk, which makes having spent $200 for this device frustrating. However, I am not sure if it is because I am doing something wrong. Maybe I not using enough vacuum or using the wrong size? I don’t want to use too much and injury her teats! Is it because she is not letting milk down for me? Or are the two bucklings taking everything she has? It was a struggle for my first goat and I to figure out a milking routine, but we worked it out and now milking is fast and easy with her. I had hoped this milker would help me, but so far it is a bust!

I’m just going to say this ~ for me this was money well spent! Easy to use, comfortable for the ewe and saves me $$. I store excess colostrum if a ewe has a single, if I have a weak lamb I pull colostrum and can either bottle or tube feed depending on the circumstance. I have a Gotland that produces huge amounts of milk so I store some of that too. Very handy to have and having frozen colostrum/milk is truly a life saver.

Love this! Makes it so much easier, now you don’t have to try to hold something for the milk to go in. One step, easy no mess and ready to freeze or put the nipple on and feed! Another winning product from Premier 1!
I had a ewe that I couldn’t get to milk, wasn’t sure if I was just doing something wrong, this came in the mail and I got it figured out. Thanks again for the fast service!

This product didn’t work for me. It was slower than hand milking and a little fussy. I have two friends that love theirs, so I’m sure that there is a learning curve here or perhaps it just works better with some animals. But I would recommend that if you’ve done a lot of hand milking and are experienced with that, save your money.
