We got goats for milk since there’s a formula shortage, so we’re new to all of this, and I have a few questions.
1)Do we need to pasteurize the milk for a newborn
2) when milking can we mix the milk from more than 1 goat
3) can you mix dates, yesterday’s milk with todays?

1. No, do not pasteurize the milk. The milk is wholesome a delicious raw. If you were to breastfeed, it comes from your breasts raw. That's the best for babies.
2. Yes, you can mix all the milk together from the day's milking.
3. Yes, you can mix dates. However, it is generally not a good idea to mix warm milk and cold milk, especially if it isn't going to be drunk right away. So, if you were mixing today's warm milk that was freshly milk with yesterday's cold milk that is sitting in the fridge to give to the baby now, that would be perfectly fine. If you wanted to pour today's warm milk into the same jar as yesterday's cold milk to top off the jar, then your milk will take on a off-flavor sooner depending on how long you wait to drink it.
