As many of you know, life on the ranch can get pretty busy, it helps to work toward a little better efficiency, even if it only saves you a few moments. I found that for $25 I was able to save myself an hour and a half feeding kids with this bucket and I wanted to share how to make it with you.
All the materials were fairly easy to come across, the bucket was very helpful, make sure to get the lid. The vinyl tubing is 3/8" and came in a 10' roll. The nipples can be purchased from a local feed store, or ordered from goat suppliers, such as Hoegger Farmyard. The one-way valves were ordered in a packet of 12 from Hoegger's. The one-way valves are not necessary, but they do allow for an easier feeding experience for the kids as once they suck the milk up, it stays in the tube. Very helpful for newborns, not so necessary after a week or two.
