I'm ordering a stainess milk pail, a couple of them. Should I also order a milk strainer and filters? The doe I'm buying is used to being milked twice a day. I should plan to milk her the evening I get her home? I have read the articles on Fias Co Farm and plan to follow their sanitation procedures of washing the doe's udders and dipping the teats afterwards. And I read in a different article about putting a few squirts of milk into a bowl from each teat before I begin the actual milking. Any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated. The articles on Fias Co Farm sounded like if good sanitation is practiced, shouldn't have any problems. Will I be able to tell if something is wrong with the milk, thus a problem with the doe? One article I read talked about ropy milk and all sorts of things - under udder care. Having only had grocery store milk and no one nearby to see what is "normal" is it hard to tell if its "abnormal"?
