good price for devondale uht
we drink the uht as we are on a budget and with 3 kids ( tho 2 drink rice milk) its easier if u have a litre or 2 in the cupboard instead of runnning to the shop all the time. i like the taste of the devondale too. and the aldi milk is quite all right too, and the kids love thier rice milk. if i can find the unhomogenised organic milk on spec ( usually discounted near end of date) i buy that and freeze it as soon as get home.November 28, 2010 at 12:40 pm #483609
we also had that milk special on at our local woolies, I was tempted, but I walked passed it. They say only stockpile what you use, we dont use it. Maybe i should ?
Instead i bought –
2boxes of 5bars each soap
1pkt of 10 green scrubbing scourers
2 bars of sard wonder soap
2 boxes of 100 tabs each of panadol at guardian chemist for $7.99 each
I now have 2 x 35L plastic storage boxes plus 1 full nappy box full of SHTF stuff.
I’m on to the second nappy box now. My 4yr old has asked on several occasions “whats all this stuff for?”
I say “its for a special occasion” :laugh:November 28, 2010 at 4:46 pm #483610
Not sure where I got it from but I’ve always been under the impression that UHT milk was made from milk powder, reconstituted, and heat treated.
I’d rather use powdered milk and make it up myself.November 28, 2010 at 5:10 pm #483611
I have several UHT milk in the stockpile along with powdered milk, I picked up some UHT a few weeks ago 89c for 1L, even if it is made from milk powder and reconstituted it would be handy if the proverbial hits the fan.November 28, 2010 at 6:48 pm #483612

Stockpile what you use, use what you stockpile.
The time to experiment with trying new foods and new ways of cooking is not when you are totally reliant on your stockpile. Stockpiling is a way of reducing stress when you are already stressed… and that is not the time to try new things out…
So if you don’t use UHT milk, don’t buy it. But certainly ensure that if you drink milk, what would you drink if your regular supply goes kaput?November 28, 2010 at 7:17 pm #483613
i think i better go out and get some……and extra milo to mix it with!!November 28, 2010 at 8:55 pm #483614
I wonder how the Maple St co-op case went? Does anyone know?November 28, 2010 at 9:14 pm #483615
Don’t know the outcome of Maple St – it’ll probably take 2 years to get through the courts 😆November 28, 2010 at 10:33 pm #483616

I work at a dairy farm on weekends and have never gotten milk from the vat.. I see what ends up on the filter – dirt, manure and if there is a cow in the herd with mastitis – clumps… ick!!
I’ve milked cows on and off for half my life, as does my partner and a lot of my family.
Only time there’s crap in the filter is if basic hygiene in the dairy isn’t followed. Rinsing the udders before chucking the cups on gets rid of most of this.
Plus if it’s filtered none of that crap actually gets through to the vat.
Mastitis is pretty easily picked up, and the milk is usually kept separate by swapping the hoses over and diverting the mastitis ridden milk to a bucket.
I’ve been raised on farm milk as have my kids…. no probs so far.
Each to their own though… everyone has the right to make a choice that suits their own personal circumstances.
