Teach the little feller to drink out of a pail. I asked my father one time why he didn't use them nipple pails. He said they were hard to keep clean and the dang calf would butt them and knock them all over the place.
Just stick your fingers in the milk, stick his nose in the milk, let him suck on your fingers at first till he figgers it out. He'll soon learn and the whole operation will be a lot quicker and neater. Once in a while you get a slow learner that almost has to drown before he learns. Yours might be one of them, especially if he's a little older and used to the nipple.

TSC as well as several feed stores around here carry the red rubber replacement nipples. If you don't have any around you, I beleive Jeffers vet supply, and american livestock supply also have them.

Lazee Horse,
Thanks,I'll try tsc. The red ones that they have at F&FL.are too small and fer' a bottle. guess I'll just have to go to tsc. just hate to have to drive 25 miles to get there. at least the calf is doing good, plum ripped the nipple out ta' buckett. Maybe thats why momma didn't want nuttin to do with the calf, she could sence that the pain was a commin,HA
