- Wait up to 30 seconds for the ewe to relax enough to release milk.
- Once suction has been obtained, "bump" the milker into the udder - similar to the motion a lamb would make if nursing.
- When suction is obtained - try positioning the milker from various angles (also apply the "bump" concept while doing this).
- Try a few more squeezes than is advised if milk flow slows.
For animals with small teats: The package with rubber inserts (#556111) is needed or you can purchase inserts individually (#556115 or #556116). For goats order quart bottles (#556112).
How to Use
ATTENTION!! Silicone Inserts, (Liners)
Please read this Product information thoroughly.
At EZ Animal Products we are continually listening to our customers and are always trying to upgrade the Udderly EZ Milkers.We have found better Silicone Inserts to go into the #2 (large) extraction tube.
The top part of the Silicone Insert is flared at the point where it goes into the top of the hard plastic tube. This virtually eliminates any air leakage from around the top of the tube. (And is easier to assemble) Both the large and small Silicone Inserts fit into the same #2 Tube. (They will not fit into the #1 Tube) We are still including the #1 Tube into each kit because in some instances you may want to use it without an insert. Besides one being bigger than the other, each hard plastic tube is embossed with the number on the front of it.
Please Note: When inserting the large Silicone Liner into the #2 Tube, once you have it seated, you will notice that the top of it is still a little above the top lip of the extractor tube. Just push it down and it will seat around the top of the extractor tube. We will show this in the instructional video that we are working on at the present
It is still possible to milk most any animal without the inserts but they stop the possibility of any milk/colostrum from getting drawn into the pump.
REMEMBER!! Both silicone inserts now fit into only the #2 hard plastic extractor tube.
Thank you for using our products.

Very handy teats.

Works very well. Just the ticket to harvest colostrum.

Super easy to use on my Polypay ewes. Beats hand milking, hands down. One factor that made it easy was the head gate the ewe was in.
I know other owners and they've had problems with the tabs breaking off. So we'll see about reliability over time. It's really important to take the milking assembly off before you put on or take off the bottle.

The video was just a promotional video without directions, but reading the enclosed information is helpful. Definitely, bag balm should be used around the top of the insert.
Some of my ewes are easier to milk than others. If you have regular size sheep, you will need the largest instert.

Long review...I hope it is allowed.
I recently purchased this unit to use with my Nigerian Dwarf goats. I called to ask about the best size for my smaller goats, speaking to their smaller body and teat size.
The accompanying DVD and instructions get low marks. The DVD is more about selling the unit, not instructional. The portion of the DVD that could have been the most instructional was awkward at best. The woman was using the Udderly EZ for every day milking, not just collecting colostrum. There was so much background noise (bird??) that she was hard to hear and whoever took the video did a poor job of showing the best views. Often, the woman in the video was blocking the view. But...no problem...I figured out how the unit went together and also how to use it. Farm folks are like that.
While this unit did in fact work, it did not milk out completely. I guessed that the issue was that I was new at it and needed to give it several days use and with several goats. Still...not so good. I always had to finish the job by hand. And because the unit does one teat at a time, the goats were on the stand a long time...not favorable. Buying two units was just cost prohibitive. These are expensive for a lot of plastic!! Just way over priced.
My second problem with the design is that the unit takes up a lot of room under a dwarf size goat. Add the bottle to the bottom and no room! I tried tilting the unit but going too far would make the seal give way. The only bottle that worked was the smallest 8 oz. bottle. But...even my smallest goats have about 32 oz. of milk (my best milker, double that, but she's a bit bigger and I won't factor her in). This meant that to use the best sized bottle, I had to keep taking the unit off to pour out what had been collected. So...great idea indeed, but the design is simply not suited for smaller goats. Maybe someone else would have better luck, but I say, if you have smaller goats, don't try this.
A portion of the Udderly-EZ promotional include that this is ideal for those milking many goats (but not so many to upgrade to a professional compressor model) and getting tired hands. I have a small goat dairy and thought it would be ideal. I don't believe the promotional to be true.
To make matters worse, when I went to return the unit (and the 2 quart bottles - NEVER EVEN USED), I was never told that they charge a $15 fee for each return and they don't pay return shipping. Was that in print somewhere? So I paid a high price for an item that did not work for my circumstance and then had to pay $30 fee ($15 for the unit and $15 for the 2 extra bottles) and about $10+/- shipping.
I have spent hundreds of dollars for farm equipment from Premier 1 company (mostly in fencing) and have been very pleased, so it saddens me to give such a low rating on this product and the accompanying service.
We’ve wrestled with raising prices to offer free shipping both ways. So far, we’ve not been able to make the math work for everyone. We realize some folks prefer free shipping both ways. But others would rather have lower item prices and pay shipping separately. We're trying to find the right balance between both groups.
We don’t charge a restocking fee for any item when it is returned in sellable condition within 30 days. If we’ve charged you incorrectly, please contact us.
