:?: Hi, We have just moved from a 3/4 acre block to our small farm (100 acres) in a bid to be fully self sufficient. I am wondering should I pasteurise my milk. We take delivery of our house cow this week and her current owners have it raw. I know the for and against but we will have cattle coming and going from our property in the form of steers. They will be away from the house cow but next door graze their cattle from time to time in the next paddock. So I guess what I'm saying is even though I know the status of my cattle I don't think I should take the risk? Also we have an eighteen month old and I'd hate to risk her health. Just wondering what others do? So glad I found this site, I have been growing my own vegies for years and have always kept chooks but permie's seem to be few and far between!
