Plastic milking container, used as the milking container when producing milk to sell in villages and markets where non-Samburu will be buying, or simply as a container for carrying milk to the market, or on other journeys. As of this writing, Summer 2018, lepirra are not classed as a mala, lmala, or referenced by lmasin, the general term for wooden or gourd milking containers.
[Query. When used simply to carry milk, without the intention to sell it, is the milk poured or milked directly into the plastic container, or can it contain milk from a lmama?]
