I found a bottle brush I like better than the metal one (it wants to rust) that comes with the Ultimate EZ Milker.

The online review said the top of the brush tends to break off so I handle mine gently and ordered a couple of replacements. I love the way it cleans my EZ bottles.

Thank you for the bottle brush link MaryJane. I've been using a brush that I bought when making wine a few years back, but I will order a couple of these and have them on hand. I ordered another Ultimate EZ milker today so I will have a spare if I should need it. Already have extra tubing and bottles etc. So should be ready to go when the girls calve and freshen again.

Just have to say ... I milked using my brand new Ultimate EZ milking machine and I absolutely love it!! I used it with my goats as Clover isn't milking ... yet. This is incredibly easy and I used the hand milker last night with my goats and the entire machine this morning. Loved using both of them ... of course, the hand milker is a bit more work but no electricity necessary.

I am very much looking forward to using it on Clover! And, this way I will be familiar with the machine ... one less new thing for me once Clover calves.

After using the Ultimate EZ milking machine, I have noticed that my goats' production has actually increased a bit and this is without me milking them out after they are done with the machine. This machine does a wonderful job of fully milking them out! I have tried to hand strip them afterwards and only get one or two squirts. I'm continually impressed with this machine and my clean up time has also decreased as I have less pails to clean.

Definitely a great product that is ACTUALLY a great product, like Cindy said.

Just a quick reply to some questions and statements.

We are in the process of ordering the brushes that Mary Jane suggested in an earlier post, so they will be available in about a week, thanks for the suggestion!
Our Logo will be ready this weekend for our new Ez Solar System, and you may want to catch up on our own Paddy Cakes blog about the new Solar Unit as she will have the pricing and other essentials worked out this weekend. She is becoming more demanding every week. www.udderlyez.com/blog

She doesn't know it yet but she will soon be inseminated with Mary Janes leading sire!!

Since this is my first try on this page I may have done something wrong??

Thanks, and happy milking!! Buck

Hello Buck. Thanks for the link and welcome. Love meeting new folks and can't wait to read up on Paddy Cakes. (love the name by the way) It will be exciting to watch and read of all the developments with Paddy Cakes and MaryJane's bull results. Can't wait. Again, welcome Buck. Can't wait to try the Solar System EZ.

You know Buck, I do have one teeny, tiny little suggestion. Whenever I get out a new EZ plastic bottle to use for milking, I have one heck of a time taking the label off that you put on for colostrum dating. I find that over time the label gets yucky looking when not going directly into the freezer full of colostrum, so I like to remove it. I have to use a combination of water soaking and citrus solve and a sharp knife to get it off. Any chance you could just include the label (to be applied) for those who are using it for that purpose?

Mary Jane,

Thank you for the suggestion, and you are not the only one to bring that up. I totally agree with you and we will discuss it with the troops, and will get something done.

We may just apply them to the 8 oz bottles only and send labels along with the rest or not at all for the big bottles, or maybe just for the first time purchasers of our product?? We can make this happen!

We are very tuned in to what people have asked and are always looking for better ways to upgrade our products and listen to what customers have to say. I think thats why over 50,000 people have my cell #

The BUCK stops here!! so to speak..... that is if Paddy Cake doesn't disagree??? Thanks for the suggestion MaryJane! I will send some new ones I just took also so you can decide which to use and I will have the new Logo by then also.

Yes, Thank you for such wonderful service and equipment. I love my Ultimate EZ milker, and have never had any issues with it what so ever. I ordered another machine (for an extra, for back up) and the order was here the next day. Probably never need it but… Great product, great service.

Buck,

Cindy from Texas here and wanted to thank you for your GREAT product! I received mine and am happy as a little farmgirl could be. It makes cow milking an enjoyable experience for us newbies, takes away the hard physical work without creating daunting milk machine use/clean up - your milker is so simple and brilliant.

Thanks for being there for us. Best wishes.
