Cutting the Pritchard Teat—Teats are supplied with no hole in the end and must be cut before use. Two different techniques can be used to cut the teat:
- The most common technique is to use sharp scissors and snip the tip off cross-ways. The more you snip, the bigger the hole, so don't overdo it.
- An alternate method is to not cut off the tip, but instead carefully slit the end into two halves with a razor. The two halves snap back together when not in use and self seal the end of the teat. Most importantly, this self-sealing method of cutting the teat allows you to place the teat in a partially inverted position, from which the lambs can suck at will.
- Be sure not to lose the tiny metal ball that rattles when you shake the teat. The teat will leak without this ball. This rarely happens and primarily only from washing the teats too aggressively.
- Do not use Clorox® to disinfect teats. The strong chemical reacts with the latex and can cause rapid disintegration of the teat. Be aware of imitation Pritchard Teats currently on the market. They can be identified by their stiffer, molded rubber material. Pritchard Teats are made with soft pliable latex. We have found in experimenting with imitation teats that they are difficult to use with weak lambs, goat kids or tiny lambs from triplets or quads.
- Do not leave teats sitting in the sunlight. Especially do not leave them sitting on a window ledge inside a building. This "greenhouse" situation has been known to heat the red latex until it melts into a gooey blob. As all areas of high heat are bad for this type of latex, it's best not to leave them close to an "active" wood stove or furnace.
- Do not clean the teats in boiling water. Use only warm water with a small amount of dishwashing detergent.

Love the wide mouth bottles so they can be washed with a bottle brush! We were using plastic soda bottles but no way to wash them so would just have to throw them out after a few days. These bottles are also sturdy and easy to handle when you have aggressive baby goats sucking on them.

The O ring seal falls off before I can get the top on.

We like the bottles and teats. My only complaint is they don't sit level, are wobbly and makes me think going to tip over but of course don't actually tip over.

Great quality and very helpful with the bottle rack. Pritchard nipples are durable, reliable and leak proof (IF you follow directions about cutting the hole.)

These are indispensable during kidding season for us. If a doe has a tough time delivering, we can milk a little milk to get the kids going until mom is up to the task. Easy to clean, nipple works well, love the graduations on the side to determine how much each kid drinks.
