Hi everybody. For the last 3 weeks or so I have been milking our mutt goat, Clara, and I finally have her to the point where she is used to it, waits for me to milk her, does not make a fuss, and does not step in the milk or kick dirt in it anymore. Also I have started giving the milk to my dog, but now my mom says that if I milk her one more time I have to drink it! By the way I already milked her withought drinking it, but that is because I plan on telling my mother that I will do it tomorrow once I have everything ready. I'm actually alright about drinking the milk, it's just that I want to make it clean first, I do not plan on pasterizing, as I have heard you do not have to, and would rather not deal with it. So I need to know how to clean her udders, i heard that you can not do it with water, and I need to know how to keep the dirt and prevading floaties out. I really will appreciate any help or advice, Thank you Bye. P.S. If any one can tell me how to make butter and or cheese that would be great too. Thanks.
