IMO, the novelty will wear off in about a week, and unless you have a large family and are planning on making a lot of dairy products from scratch (very time consuming), you cannot possibly use all of the milk - unless they are a really low producer, then what would be the point in having one? And what others said...twice a day, every day - and it borders on animal abuse to be "late" about it. Perhaps you should volunteer to milk someone's cow for a week, then make up your mind.
Otherwise, any stainless steel bucket of the appropriate size that can be sanitized and is made in the US will do.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
