The pigs will not worry about it being fresh, or even 100% clean.
The pigs will drink it if its warm/cold or when its soured.
I really miss having my pigs for the ease of feeding.
another question i have is, is this illegal milk selling an enforced law where you live? For instance I've read that places can have laws though without having a bylaw officer or someone to enforce the laws around, there are ways around selling things. just a thought.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the best uses for excess milk? So far, I have:
1. Raise a few extra bottle calves.
2. Perhaps feed it to the chickens or a hog?
3. Spread it on the pasture as an amendment?
I'm done with the lists, but would love to hear people's thoughts on all the above.
