Reliving the Good Years
Hi Buck + Staff,
We just wanted to say thanks for your design + production of the Ultimate EZ Milker bucket. Forty+ years ago – as a young family – we had a milk cow that I hand milked. We loved our mini-farm but life changes and jobs and moves took us away from our small acreage. However, life cycles, and we are now back to what we most enjoy – 5 acres, garden, chickens, and room for a milk cow. We found a young Jersey heifer, raiser her up, bred her and she gave us a calf in April. I knew that age (68) and arthritis would make hand-milking difficult. So, we purchased your Udderly EZ milker but then decided since we were training a new cow for milking – we might as well do so with a powered machine. With research, reviews, and LOTS of YouTube videos we decided on your Ultimate EZ milker.
We would like to acknowledge our favorite YouTube video from Simply Guns – “Milking Made EZ”. The fact that they had no affiliation with your company yet spoke so highly of your machine sold us and we ordered one that day. Their video made it real to us and gave tips that have proved very helpful.
We are so glad that we bought both products from you! The EZ milker allowed us to get colostrum from a never-been-milked-cow! Awesome! The Ultimate Milker has made every day of milking easy and fun. BTW – our cow’s name is Joy and that is exactly what we are experiencing.
Also – a big thanks for your videos, cleaning demonstrations, and wonderful service. We are two happy “old-folks” reliving the good years! Thank you.

Help With Bottlefeeding
This kid was born two weeks premature. She was unable to stand up and nurse like she needed to. Right there in the barn I took out my Udderly EZ milker and milked the mom’s colostrum then hand fed the new kid right on the spot 30 minutes from when she was born. I milked the mom’s colostrum for the next three days and hand-fed the newborn kid 5 times a day for a week. I am a new goat owner, I don’t have any previous experience milking goats. I firmly believe that because the Udderly EZ Milker is so easy to use, it will help me to save this newborn kid’s life. After a week of hand feeding, the kid developed the vigor to nurse and she has turned out to be a very healthy goat. It took me about five days of hand feeding, but I managed to get all of her mom’s colostrum in her. I use the Udderly EZ Milker twice a day to milk my goats, it is easy, quick, and not uncomfortable for the goat. I would really hate not having one to use. I’m still a new goat owner, I am still not any good at hand milking, but I get all my milk, thanks to the Udderly EZ Milker.
Easier on the Animal
To Buck and All,
My husband and I, along with our goat “Daisy” , want to thank you. Your Udderly EZ Milker has been a life saver. After watching the DVD you sent I had no hesitation in my ability to use your product. Our Daisy was happy with how quick and easy it was on her. We thank you for coming up with the EZ Milker and all your help.
Have a great day,
P.S. We will tell everyone we can about your product!

Milking with Arthritis
I am so thankful that I am still able to milk my does with my arthritis. I have been using the Udderly EZ Milker™ for 10 ½ years now. I have even learned to use two pumps at the same time. I’m sure there are many ladies that wish they could continue to milk their animals in spite of their medical problems.
At my age, most would have given up. But ladies, DON’T, it is possible to still enjoy some added years of farm life, even if you are on medicare and still cooking! Don’t give up the good things in life, pure homegrown healthy milk, cheese, and all the fixings.

An Economic Solution
I wanted to thank you for your invention, the Udderly EZ™ Milker. When we decided to change to organic farming I forgot about all the orphan lambs and the vast quantities of powdered formula that we used back then. As I read an article about your Udderly EZ™ I thought that this might be the answer.
I had purchased it before the current lambing season and it certainly has proven most invaluable to us as we had colostrum on hand for all the lambs and also a reserve in the freezer. This meant that we did not have to buy the commercial colostrum nor the organic ewe milk replacer for the orphan lambs.(at 75 for 25kg bag) This method is better for the lambs, a huge economic savings and does not comprise our organic principals or status as organic farmers which we try to attain both on the farm and our B&B.
Having both sheep and cows, we hope to achieve a full organic status on the farm within the next two years. We will continue to use and most definitely recommend the Udderly EZ™ to everyone and it is a definite must for every lambing bag. It makes for healthier lambs and saves us a lot of time that we used to spend going to and from the house to prepare the powdered formula. We have also used it very successfully to milk one of the Aubrac Cows, so this product is very versatile.

Solution for a Stroke Survivor
On Dec 18th, 2007 I went into the ER in Charlottesville, Va. (UVA). I was having a stroke! Unfortunately, they gave me the wrong medication for a whole hour. I suffered irreversible damage to the right side of my body. Losing the use of my right/dominant hand, impaired use of my right leg, and having to learn to talk again, TO THINK AGAIN!! I could not spell my name! It has taken me 3 ½ years to get back to gardening, milking my goats, making cheese, soap, etc. The Udderly EZ Milker has been a godsend! I love using it, just pump and let it rip! I can do it with one hand, Buck Wheeler you are a genius and I’m forever in your debt.
