Yet more wonderful products are available from EZ Animal Products to make your milking easier!
The Ultimate Bucket Milker is a 3.2 gallon (12 liter) milking container that weighs only 1.5 pounds. Along with the EZ Power Pak, it will milk two animals at once, or all four teats on a cow in one convenient container.
Check out the video below to see just how easy it is to use the Ultimate EZ with Power Pak and Bucket:
The hard-working creative minds behind the EZ Animal Products line of products is excited about their latest development: a battery pack for the Ultimate EZ! Called the EZ Power Pak, it clips right to the base of the milker.
Just think of it: the convenience of an electric milker available wherever you need it – off-grid, at the county fair, during a power outage, even out in a pasture. No more running awkward extension cords to the nearest outlet. Instead, the quiet and efficient Ultimate EZ will milk your animals with its own self-contained power source.
Nearly everyone has a battery-powered cordless drill made by DeWalt, Makita, or Milwaukee. These 18- or 20-volt batteries are proving to be multi-functional – not just in powering the drills, but now powering an easy milking option.
The EZ Power Pak is easily installed on your existing Ultimate EZ milker, or can be shipped pre-installed.

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.
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.

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!
“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!
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.”
“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!
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.”
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.
