    Check around your area for milk bottling plants, they usually will sell jugs to you. Or you may be able to locate a manufacturing plant for them. You can buy the green funnels at TSC in the bird seed section.

    Good deal about the green funnels I'll have to order one today. We don't have any milk bottling plants very close that I know of. Do some of y'all have them shipped in?

    google Dahl Tech they ship fed ex to your door, even without shipping their jugs are cheaper than US plastics who I used to buy from, and got my 1 pint jugs for colostrum sales from them last year. Maybe there is a different price for local pickup than their gallon milk jugs online.

  14. Chris,

    The closest bottling plant in Southern MO is Hiland in Springfield. I know that they use the plastic bottles. But, I am thinking that they come in prelabeled. Another place you might call is Martin Dairy up in Hallstown. They bottle all thier milk in Gallons and Half Gallons. They are really neat people...family owned dairy up there. Also, if you go up there make sure you can see their milking parlor. They just put in a 60 cow rotary parlor about a year ago. Just something to see.

    Our local paper supply company carries gallon plastic milk jugs and lids. It is the all-supply type of place, paper towels, stuff for food service/take out etc but in bulk for schools/businesses etc.

    Here's a photo of the Milk Jug funnel:

    This is being marketed as a funnel to recycle used motor oil and store into milk jugs.

    I got mine here http://www.backyardwildlife.com
    They were only $2.99 a piece but then I had to pay $9.00 for shipping so I bought four. If any body needs one I'll have about $5.35 a piece in them. It was going to be $8.00 to ship one so if figured I might as well get a few more.

    Bilrite, I'll have to check here at work we have a fellow that comes around and sells us paper towells and such.
