    Any tricks to freezing colostrum? Got any tips? I milked quite a bit from Holly last night and figure I shouldn't waste it.

    heat treat it and freeze in ice cube trays. 1 ice cube = 1oz or just freeze it in your coke bottles or what ever you use to feed them with.

    I strain mine, and freeze it in 20 ounce water bottles. Actually what I didn't say on HT was a 20 ounce water bottle of colostrum in my freezer means it has been heat treated. Raw colostrum is frozen in 2 liter empty soda bottles for sale $30. You can't keep colostrums quality in a frost free freezer, if yours defrosts keep your colostrum in a styrofoam ice chest inside your freezer, this way the constant defrosting does not ruin the quality of your colostrum. It will keep up to a year. Vicki

    I freeze it in ice cube trays. Once it is frozen, since I usually don't have the freezer space for ice cube trays, I put the cubes in ziploc bags and you can just take one or two or whatever you want out of it.
