I have a friend that is having some difficult and is too far away for me to go help her with her first calf heifer. She started using the Udderly EZ (without my knowledge) and I wanted to get her some info on it so that she can make a more informed decision.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Tammy, Right off the top this is the first thing about it I found, don't know if it will help, but it is something while I continue to look. There are a few threads about it, so I know they are out there.

I coppied my reply to this thread from the milking machine section. Tammy, tell your friend that they are really bad for the teats and udder. Think about it....if the science was good on a vac only milking system, why wouldn't the dairies and universities be using it? Its much cheaper to use vac only. Fact is,it's bad bad bad to milk without pulsation. Causes all sorts of damage and HURTS. People always say...it took them a while to get used to it...after a while the animal just gives up. Think about using a breast pump with out any resting pulse, and only strong vacuum.

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
