    We raise our goats on a strict CAE prevention program so, of course, we sterilize the colostrum/ milk and bottle raise the kids. Last year we made sure that each set of kids got the colostrum for their own dam, even though we had sterilized colostrum from other does that we could have given to the later arrivals. Any opinions on whether or not it really matters whose colostrum the kids get :scratch: ? Did I put myself through unnecessary middle of the night colostrum sterilizing when I had other available?! :whatgoat:

    If you are sterilizing it properly, it shouldn't matter who the mother was.
