A few questions

Do I need to heat the milk? If so can I do it in the microwave or should I treat it like human milk and warm in warm water?

Also I milked my doe and she put her foot in the bucket. There was dirt and such in the milk. If I strain it can I still give it to my doe?

Yes, you do need to heat the milk. I make it slightly warmer than you would for a human baby. As long as it is not colostrum, you can heat the milk in the microwave. If it is colostrum, then you need to do it the old fashioned way.

I would not use the milk that was stepped in. I just wouldn't want to take a chance on parasites being in the milk.
