    Last year ~(kidding season 2008) we got hit pretty hard with toxoplasmosis. This year thankfully, everything going well. I'm wondering though, as I really need to start getting some extra funds in to help cover the feed costs, and am considering selling a small amount of the raw milk. - But at the same time - that toxoplasmosis hangs over my head and I am wondering would it be safe to sell the raw milk, knowing that last year all that went on. Should I heat it stove top first before I bottle it? We are TB clear and all the goats seem healthy.

    I am not a dairy expert via milk wise but I dont think that toxoplasmosis is transmitted in the milk.

    Are you allowed to sell raw milk off the farm in Ireland? just curious. Each state here in the US has their own regulations
