Udderly EZ™ Milker
Hand-powered sheep and goat milking machine makes lambing and kidding season easier on your hands the 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 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, farm managers and more 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 teach sustainable living and this is hands down the cleanest safest most efficient way to milk a goat for ones family. You wouldnt want this if you have over 3 goats or sheep but it is perfect for 1-3 animals. This is the second one I have bought, it lasts roughly about 4-5 years when properly cared for and cleaned. I wish it wasn't plastic but it does hold up well. Takes me 30-40 mins start to finish for one goat, including clean up.

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.
