The orf unit seems to be improving daily but I have a question - I milk mom out once a day. She does have a couple of now scabby lesions on one teat. Of course I am wearing gloves and cleaning the milk stand afterward. Is there anything at all that I can do with this milk that's safe? Is it okay to feed to the chickens? Will pasteurization kill the virus if any got into the milk?

That's what I've been doing. I also am now supplementing her kids as she doesn't seem to want them to nurse her sensitive side. So I'm feeding her milk to them since they already have the virus.

This has been awful. I'd love a nice calm kidding season one time.
