Our One Cow Bucket Milker is an affordable and ideal system for small dairy farms. It's simple to use and easy to maintain, and a great alternative to a pipe-line system. We're farmers too, so we understand that you want equipment that's affordable, reliable, and easy-to-use. This is why we are now equipping our buckets milkers with silicone milk hose. Not only is silicone much easier to work with, it also lasts 2 to 3 times longer than Glitex hose, which should be replaced twice a year. The silicone milk hose should be good for up to three years, depending upon the amount of usage it receives. This package includes everything EXCEPT THE VACUUM PUMP. In order to power this system, a vacuum pump is required. This system comes with a 1 year warranty.
