More good news for off-grid folks

It’s a situation a lot of on-grid people don’t like to think about, and it’s something off-grid folks have to think about all the time: How do you milk your animals without power?

Oh sure, some fortunate folks just milk by hand. But if health doesn’t permit, or there are too many animals to hand-milk, then the battery-powered Ultimate EZ Milker is well worth considering.

These machines are equipped with mini Power-Pak inverters so clients can milk any animal, anywhere, with the same speed and flexibility as if they were plugged into 110v or 220v outlets in the barn.

These Power Paks mean there’s always a backup if the power grid goes down. The Power Pak is capable of using the 20-volt DeWalt and the 18-volt Makita and Milwaukee batteries. Most farms already have these brands on hand, so the batteries are readily available.

It’s always wise to be prepared for when the power goes out. No one wants animals to suffer because they can’t be milked. Consider an EZ Power Pak to supplement your Ultimate EZ Milker.

Introducing the EZ Power Pak

The New Products Division of EZ Animal Products is proud to announce its latest development: The Ultimate EZ Power Pak Machine.

Yes, the Ultimate EZ has been upgraded yet again. EZ Products is always improving. This time it examines how to bring power to the machine when the machine is away from a source of power.

The answer is the EZ Power Pak, specially designed to operate the Ultimate EZ Milker. The Power Pak is capable of using the 20-volt DeWalt and the 18-volt Makita and Milwaukee batteries. We recommend using at least a 6-amp battery for longer sustained milkings.

EZ Products is also manufacturing this improvement in 220 volts to help overseas customers.

The EZ Power Pak is equipped with a USB port capable of charging an iPad or cell phone. As with all EZ Animal Products, the Power Pak is proudly made in the USA, and is manufactured exclusively for EZ Animal Products by Fisher Manufacturing.

A special discount will be given if the entire kit is ordered:

  • Ultimate EZ Milker
  • Power Pak
  • 6-volt battery
  • Battery charger

Products for Plain People

Some of the most enthusiastic supporters of EZ Milking products are the Plain People – the Amish and Mennonites who live closer to the land and prefer to reduce or shun most modern conveniences, including the Internet.

So when reaching out to show the EZ Product line geared for a simpler lifestyle, print media are the best way. EZ has a large advertisement coming out in the June issue of Plain Communities Business Exchange, a paper mailed monthly that connects plain communities across the United Sates.

This publication has over 18,000 subscribers in 40 states and connects Plain People with merchandise they might need. And as so many Amish and Mennonite customers agree, EZ Milking products are up there with the best!

‘Pint-size power punching machine’

“Owning dairy animals requires extreme loyalty to the animals. Early mornings and late nights are just the beginning of what dairy families endure. So, when a product is found that can make life a little simpler, why not give it try?”

So begins a recent blog post on Mother Earth News’ website by a homesteader named Carrie Miller.

It seems Ms. Miller was stymied by the lack of affordable products for small livestock holders, particularly milking machines. The search for a suitable milker was based in part on her husband’s Muscular Dystrophy. “I needed something easy for my husband to use but also simple for me to clean and maintain,” she noted.

So when she discovered the Ultimate EZ. “Farmers and homesteaders can’t necessarily afford the opportunity to try out a lot of new products,” she wrote. “What if you spend a ton of money to only find yourself disappointed with the purchase? For many, this fear alone keeps them from trying new equipment and/or products.”

After buying the machine, she was thrilled with the results. “The Ultimate EZ Milker, wow where to even start. I have only recently purchased this product but have fallen madly in love with it. … This little pint-size power punching machine is not your typical milking machine.”

From the first, Ms. Miller enjoyed the Ultimate EZ. “This machine is not a stereotypical pulsating machine, it works off a completely different technology. Even our first freshener [goat] took right to it with no issue. … Have we had any problems due to the lack of pulsation? Absolutely not! It is extremely gentle on the girls, causing no pain or irritation.”

Ms. Miller liked the customer service she received from Buck Wheeler. “For me, I like to go directly to the horse’s mouth. I always contact the higher ups of a company and ask the hundred and one questions I have. If they don’t respond or seem less than willing to provide the information I seek, I simply move on to another product. At the end of the day customer service is number one to me, like most buyers. I want to know if there’s a problem down the road, that the company will work with me to find a solution. If the company is unwilling to talk to you when you’re thinking about purchasing their product, what’s the chance they will when there’s a problem.”

The review concludes with this happy note: “These are the opinions of Miller Micro Farm, not the opinions of Mother Earth News. Miller Micro Farm is endorsing this product because we love it. We have not been paid by the company to do so.”

Good to know!

Chatter from horse-lovers

Here’s a conversation overheard on the Chronicle of the Horse forum.

“Udderly EZ Milker – Has anyone had any experience with this device? Comments? Yeah or ‘Neigh’?”

“Udderly Easy – It works great! Was a life saver when I had an ophan foal. I also collect and freeze milk from each of my mares in case of emergency. – Maggie”

“Ditto what Maggie wrote. It is very quick and easy. It also seems to be more comfortable for the mare than manual milking and much more efficient than using an inverted dose syringe.”

“Another BIG thumbs up! I swiped the one from my sister last year and it was a Godsend, especially to get that important first milk into them. Plus – it saves your back – big time – as it is so quick and easy.”

“I have not used it on a horse, but I have used it a lot with my Nigerian Dwarf goats and it works great. I know it’s not the same thing as using on a horse, but I can say that it is easy to set up and there is much less hand fatigue than hand milking. It’s a good product.”

“I’ll agree w/ everyone else; great product! We foal out quite a few mares every year and milk almost all of them, either to freeze or to feed back to the foal. It saves a ton of time.”

Mare milker in action with the Udderly EZ

“Everyone is dead on about this. I LOVE IT!!! Really saved us when I had a foal last year that could not latch on. Easy to use, mares dont mind it at all. Have one on hand. It’s worth it even if you just use it once.”

“Good to know that everyone is giving it a great review! I think I might purchase one. I like to keep colostrum on hand for our farm or others if needed, and milking by hand gets awfully tiring! Where is the best place to purchase one from? (I am in Canada).”

“LOVE IT! It makes life so much easier if you’ve got one you have to milk regularly.”

“Ours is still going strong in its third year.”

“Udderly worth having. Easy to use and works great. Have extra colostrum in the freezer too.”

“Worth Every Penny! Even if you buy a new one every foaling season, its a huge improvement over the upturned syringe or hand milking – much easier on the back and hands. A side bonus is that less experienced folks can use it easily – it takes some time to learn *how to milk* a mare.”

“Thanks all! Ordered one yesterday. Hope to bank a little more colostrum this year.”

More chatter from happy customers!

Always happy to help

An advantage of a company built on word of mouth and American values is the importance of customer service – often from the head man himself.

Consider this letter from customer Sylvia, who milks goats:

“Hi: I absolutely love this product. This is my second year milking. My problem is that I don’t see the bottles that I would like to have. I have the half-pint plastic bottles, several of which I melted. Instead of plastic, I would like to have something in glass, primarily for hygienic reason, but need something smaller than the quart bottles. I can and do use the quartz plastic bottles but some of my does seem to be a little cranky about them, as the angle of the tit and the bottle can sometimes be a bit troublesome. Please let me know what bottles you have that might be of help, and if there are none that will remedy the problem, please let me know so that I order new plastic half pints. Thanks in advance for your help.”

Buck Wheeler, founder of EZ Animal Products, got right back to Sylvia:

“Hi Sylvia: We do have the pint bottles in glass also. Call our (800) 287-4791 tomorrow and talk to John. Keep in mind they are substantially heavier because they are glass and will break!! Thanks for using our products.”

Buck and Karen Wheeler

This, folks, is typical for the kind of prompt, personalized attention EZ Products gives its customers … and why the company continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

Deliriously happy customer

When EZ Products customers are happy, they are really, really happy. Consider this recent email:

A few years ago my husband and I decided we should start raising miniature Jersey cows. We found our first calf and then a bull we liked. Before long we had a beautiful calf and it was time to start milking.

Unfortunately our cow did not have the same agenda. I tried day after day to get a cup or two of milk and all I got for my efforts was a good swift kick. My hands could only take so much of that and I just had to give up. Eighteen months later and we are back to that same place. I started out hopeful and got in there and tried again. I ended up tying the cow front and back to get a couple of cups. I finally had a wee bit of milk and found out it was kinda dirty.

So I got on the internet and started to see a cool gadget called the Udderly EZ. I was intrigued. I watched several YouTube videos and looked up the website. Pretty soon I had my husband checking it out too.

Then a wonderful thing happened. We saw the “Ultimate EZ.” Once we saw the price we were ready to give it a try. It was simple, fast, safe, and best of all CLEAN MILK.

I put in an order for the milker and some other supplies I thought I might need. I was so happy … but then something else amazing happened. My cell phone rang. I was not going to answer. It was almost 11 pm and I don’t know anyone from Kentucky. For some reason I answered my phone. To my amazement it was Buck Wheeler. WHAT? Yes, only 30 minutes after placing my order, Mr. Buck Wheeler was calling to let me know I had probably ordered too many things because I was getting duplicates of items included with my milking machine. WHAT? Yes. I was astounded. We had a nice chat and he told me I would get some of my money back and he would have the warehouse adjust my order. I felt like this is a person I can trust. I am very impressed.

Within a few days I received the equipment and supplies and a receipt for the refunded amount. I washed everything up. Watched the video, assembled a few things and headed to the barn. Once I got Miss Mini Sue situated I gave it a try. It was so easy. And in three minutes I had three bottles of milk. WHAT? Yes. At two weeks of using this system I don’t even have to put a rope on the cow to do the milking. She just eats her hay and lets me do the milking. WHAT? Yes. It is wonderful. Today I got six bottles of clean delicious milk in a few minutes. I am very impressed.

Thank you for making this new experience turn into a fun and rewarding one. – Racquel A.

Thank you, Racquel! Happy customers are the best kind!

Chatter across the board

Some more monitoring of chatter on milking forums. One person wrote:

Have u tried the Udderly EZ Milker???

I am just wondering becuz I have couple of goats is SOOO hard to milk by my hand!!! It just pain in the rear!!! UGH. So I was wondering if people have tried that or not. Cuz I dont want to waste my money on that. I cannot afford to buy milking machine. It is too expensive for me to buy. Please let me know. Thank u so much…

Immediately a helpful respondent chimed in with her recommendation for the EZ Milker. She wrote:

The EZ Milker is an entirely new invention developed to extract colostrum for foals. I don’t know how many of you have tried to milk a horse, but I have and it ain’t easy! Every piece of the EZ Milker (except for the silicone insert I believe) is American made and it all fits together very nicely. It retails between about $130 – $185. I consider this a good value because everything is included. Different sized extractors, different sized bottles, even udder wipes. Once it arrives it is very easy to assemble and use. The milk only comes in contact with the extractor and milk container so as long as you start with a clean udder the milk stays perfectly clean. Disassembly is very easy and cleaning is also very easy. The extractors are smooth and contoured to be comfortable for the goat.

[Note: The silicone inserts are now proudly made in the USA.]

Some more happy customers!
