No, these aren’t french vanilla ice cream cubes!

These are colostrum cubes!

We milked Daisy shortly after she delivered her twins and obtained some colostrum to save in the freezer just in case we needed it for another lamb somewhere down the road.  We freeze it in cubes that can be thawed when needed.

The colostrum is rich in antibodies that the lambs desperately need when they are born.  It’s only produced for a limited time early in the ewe’s lactation. 

We’ll be happy to have these in the freezer, just in case!
