Ok, so I'm learning everything I can before I bring home my two new Alpine does and start milking. I've been able to go watch a couple of people around here milk so I'm getting different ideas from people on how they do things and then can decide what I think will work best for me. I have a question... I know that getting the milk really cold as quickly as possible makes a difference in how it tastes. Can I actually bring a larger bucket with ice water in it to the barn and put the milk from the first goat (in a smaller bucket) into that larger bucket to start to get it cooling while I milk the other doe? I wouldn't strain it first, I'd do that when I get both done and go into the house but it would start to cool down the first doe's milk. Does doing that make any sense or reason? Or is it a bad thing to do?
