I have a calf bottle that is maybe 40+ years old. It's a plastic bottle and looks like the ones they sell now the only difference is that the nipples for the ones at the farm store are smaller than the one I have. The one I has the same threads as a small mouth Mason jar ring.

sorry I need a new nipple and was wondering if anyone could help me find the right size. There is no name on the bottle. The old nipple has a flange about 2 3/8" and all the ones I can find have about a 2" flange

Interesting. It's better to have a smaller nipple on it anyways. Some calves have trouble with the bigger nipples.

The nipple is about the same size but the flange that screws on is smaller on the ones I am finding. I need a nipple with a flange that is about 2 3/8".I know a new bottle is cheap I just don't want to throw away a perfectly good bottle.
