This is an easy way to train a goat kid to drink milk from a pan. 

It's not hard to teach a bottle-fed goat kid to drink milk from a pan, if you use the technique recommended by Laura Underwood of Missouri Valley, Iowa. Laura simply holds a rubber nipple's large end down in a shallow container of milk at feeding time. As the kid sucks on the familiar nipple, it learns to drink head down . . . and the young animal is fully dish trained after only two or three sessions.
