Powered Mini Milker Great For Small-Time Dairying
Buck Wheeler has an upgrade for folks who liked his Udderly EZ hand-pumped milker (FARM SHOW Vol. 30, No. 4). His new, patented Ultimate EZ™ Milker uses an electric pump to milk two teats at a time, and it works on cows, goats and sheep.

    “We’ve got so many customers that are older who have arthritis, fibromyalgia or other heath conditions,” Wheeler explains. “They wanted to milk two teats at a time, and I knew I needed a motor for that.”

    He worked on the Ultimate EZ Milker for four years and introduced it in October. It features the same inflations and containers used with the hand pump model. The inflations come in two sizes with silicone inserts for sheep and goats or cows. The milk goes directly into quart containers that come with the kit.

    The new milker is powered by an aspirator vacuum pump with a regulator and gauge for the perfect vacuum pressure.

    “Set it to 12 1/2 hg for cows and 11 for goats,” Wheeler says.

    Should milk overflow it goes through a hose into a canister instead of into the motor.

    In a side-by-side comparison, the Ultimate milker beat a jug milker by a few seconds when milking goats.

    In addition to being quiet, fast and easy to clean, Wheeler says customers appreciate that the milker is lightweight and easy to carry around. It weighs just 14 lbs.

    Customers also appreciate the introductory price of $489, which is about a third the cost of jug milkers. It comes with a year warranty, DVD instructions, and a canvas carrying bag with a vinyl bottom.

    Several videos on Wheeler’s website show how to set up the milker and milk with the Ultimate EZ Milker.
