The inverted tip of the teat prevents irritation in the animal’s mouth, and there are no threads or valves within the teat to harbour old milk or bacteria. Lambs/Kids drink at the speed that nature intended, which means that milk enters the correct stomach and is fully digested, resulting in maximum absorption of lactose and other nutrients which results in increased growth rates. Nutritional scours, which usually result from fast drinking and incorrect digestion, are prevented. The teats are easy to clean and do not need to be removed for cleaning. They are made of high quality rubber which means that they last longer than other teats on the market.
