Orange bloom/mould on maltese cheese

Hi I have had a couple of instances where I have been getting an orange bloom/mould, not sure if it is a mould or color thing, on my maltese cheese I make, It doesnt show up until it is drying and the cheese has a hard rind, these are in the fridge to dry them. Does anyone know anything about this? ...

Re: drench resistant worms in goats

Hi Heidi, We have gotten the problem under control, it seems likely it was tape worm, the panucur worked fine on my nanny but not for buck so used a strong dose of another drench we have for the sheep, I drenched them fortnightly for about 2mths and finally gave the boy a bit of an overdose :roll: b...

Re: drench resistant worms in goats

Note on lucky little goat, she even gets a bath and apparently she loves it. I am so glad I gave her to my ex daughter in law it has been good for the goat and daughter in law :D

Re: first gouda

yes it is very interesting when you look at how and why they have breed some dogs, I think there is a red setter in there somewhere too. And beleive it or not the stumpy tailed cattle dog was breed completely different, and they nearly died out because of one selfish person, thankfully they have bee...

Re: cow fencing

Re: cow fencing

I dont have any problem with raw milk I dont pasturise mine unless I plan to keep it in fridge for a few days. I like to use the raw milk in cheese and yogurt and it is a must for quark, If I pasturise it for quark it just doesnt thicken or curdle. I quess these laws are essential to safe guard the ...

Re: cow fencing

thanks for that, i didnt know, that explains why you dont see fresh milk/cram signs up anymore, when we were little we used to call into dairies and get lovely fresh cream, why did they do this? Make it illegal I mean.
