This pail does not hold up to a growing calf. The hunching that a ca;f naturally does as its nursing constantly knocks the bucket off of the hanger. I have had to add a ratchet strap to secure the pail. Also each time she butts the pail the milk sloshes out the top. With no lid that gets quite costly. I have had to make a elastic stretch cover to keep it from sloshing and keep trash and bugs out. Hope I can get her on feed soon and off this pail.
The bucket itself is well made and nipple design and valve work well and have held up well. Our only issue is that the calf at 2 months old can easily knock the buket off of the bracket when she butts it as calves naturally do when nursing. The milk then gets dumped. At 30.00 a bag a week this can be an expensive side effect. We have added a ratchet strap to secure the bucket to the wall but what is really needed is a lid. I have even gone to the extent of large rubber bands and plastic wrap to help keep her from sloshing the milk out
