February 17, 2016 (LEXINGTON, Ky.)—EZ Animal Products and Hoegger Supply Company are proud to announce that Hoegger customers can now order the Udderly EZ and Ultimate EZ milkers and accessories through Hoegger.
“The EZ milkers are inexpensive, very portable, and simple to use,” said Howie Hoegger, president of Hoegger Supply Company. “I am really excited to carry the products. They have a very good reputation in the goat world. You get a lot of bang for your buck with the machines.”
Both milkers, which have been received enthusiastically in the home milking marketplace, will increase milking speed for owners of cows, goats, sheep, and even horses and camels while remaining gentle on the animals’ teats. They are suited for routine milking use, colostrum collection, or for stripping out animals suffering from mastitis, as the silicone inserts and light suction are kind to even sensitive skin or inflamed teats.
The Udderly EZ is a hand pump milker that works when the user squeezes a handle on the underside of the milker. Milk streams from the udder directly into the plastic collection bottle below. The Ultimate EZ combines the simplicity of the Udderly EZ system with the speed of a pulsator. A pressure gauge allows the user to set the appropriate suction for their animal, and the milk still drops directly into the collection bottles without running through complicated hoses that must be cleaned out.
Hoegger customers can also purchase the EZ bottle holder and replacement parts for the 2k plastic nurser set, which simplifies the feeding process for kids.
Founded in 1938, Hoegger Supply is a family business centered around better, healthier ways to milk dairy goats. Joe and Miriam Hoegger launched the business when they started their own small goat dairy after incorporating goat’s milk into their young son’s diet. Hoegger Supply has been an educational and supply resource for goat milkers ever since, and is now managed by the family’s third generation in Fayetteville, Ga.
EZ Animal is a central Kentucky-based company with distributors across the globe. It was founded by inventor Buck Wheeler, who has spent his lifetime as a farmer working with cattle and horses while looking for practical solutions to everyday challenges for small- and medium-scale operations. EZ Animal just announced an expansion of its operations to the Gulf, where Sari General Trading has begun distributing the milkers in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, and Dubai.
“EZ Animal Products is excited to work with another family business in Hoegger Supply Company,” said Wheeler. “We’re confident Hoegger customers and their goats will love the milkers as much as we do.”
