*** Freezing fresh cows milk ***

Does anyone do this to drink later or to feed lambs when the orphans arrive?
Safe to do?
Thanks for any help

Yes, it freezes perfectly well. I tend to freeze it in the plastic container rather than the cardboard one as it swells slightly as it freezes. it goes a yellow colour when frozen and I take it out and stand it in the sink to thaw when we go to bed so it is ready to go the next day.

We are now buying milk as the cows are dry. . I get the 2 for $whatever deals and as we dont use much milk I just freeze the spare bottle. .

it does look a bit "funny" when frozen but once thawed it goes back to white. .

and I have reared more than a few lambs on it . .
