    Okay I feel really stupid! Our Peony delivered today and we decided to heat treat all of our milk from now on, since we had one girl CAE positive. So how do you heat the darned stuff without it curdling? I can't get it up to 162 degrees without it solidifying! Any experienced folks out there? Thank you! Brooke

    Oh man, I have no idea, as I have never pasturized (takes alot of the good stuff out of the milk - IMO)

    Trying to think who does CAE preventative - it will come to me - I promise.

    Thank you everyone, especially Crocee, that link was great! I was clearly treating colostrum like it was milk, but it obviously couldn't take the heat. Our baby is doing great, and today my fourth graders voted to call her Sweet Alyssum! :dance: She's so cute!!! Brooke
