    my cousin and i work at an organic dairy farm. everyday there is about 10 gallons of left over milk. we bring it home and my 100+ girls get 5 gallons. they love the stuff, especially when it starts to clot up.. Is it ok for them to have this much milk? its whole milk, so it has all the fat and stuff too. and its "raw" so no pasturization or any of that stuff. what do you guys think?

    Add crumbles to it.

    Clean out the feeders. DAILY.

    Good stuff.
