If you keep the milk chilled, it will easily keep a week with no change at all in quality. We have kept raw milk in the refrigerator for as long as two weeks and it was still sweet and good. "

Not as long...... 3 to 5 days at best! Why kill everything good in your milk?

if u think it might be spoiling, simply boil it up again (keep it boiling for 3-5 mins) then cool it off and put it back it. it'll be good for another 5-7 days again...

Milk wasn't meant to keep for long. There is this new "ultra-pasturization" which will allow you to keep your milk for months, but I doubt you could do it in-home (without expensive equipment).

Dilligaf is absolutely correct: drink the milk when you get it and make cheese with the extra milk!

I'm making yogurt, but don't have a good cheese recipe. Would you mind sharing yours?

Thanks

This is true. When I was younger, we kept a small herd of about 25 goats and I can tell you that the milk can sometimes last longer. DO NOT pasteurize it. It will completely ruin it. After it sits in the fridge for a day or two, it will get some cream that sits on top which is GREAT in coffee.
