Default logistics for raising babies on CAE prevention

I am going to raise my babies on CAE prevention this year. I have colostrum in my freezer that is 2 years old. I suspect it's nutritional and living antibodies are no longer good. I also have a bag of MannaPro Colostrum Supplement that I purchased a month ago.

My first doe to kid this year will be a second freshener. Will I have time to milk her out after kidding and pasteurize the milk at 135 degrees for an hour before the kids need to be fed for the first time?

What are your ideas on the best way to pasteurize the milk and cool it?

Looking forward to learning how experienced people handle this task.

Thanks.

Colostrum is heat treated by raising it's temperature to 135 degrees F and holding it there for 1/2 hour. Milk is pasteurized by raising it's temperature to 165 degrees and holding it there for 30 seconds. Milk was cooled in ice baths in the sink.

When I pasteurized milk I did it on my stovetop and it was a laborious task. I raised several sets of kids who tested CAE negative, even though I had positive animals. I stopped pasteurizing once I tested my herd, culled the CAE positive animals, and had clean tests for a couple of years. I still test annually because the ability to show negative test results has become a sales incentive.

Even though we continue to test negative, we raise all kids on prevention.
I set up a double boiler out of some water and 2 pans. I got myself a thermometer that I can set the a timer and a temp range on it. Above or below the range and the alarm goes off. 1 hour 132-138. Works well for me. Oh and I use a thin towel Btw the pans where the water steams. Helps me kinds control the temp on my electric stove a little better.
