If you've got a few cows or goats to milk, you'll like three new products that allow you to process just a little milk at a time.

It features a 1 1/2- to 2-gal. bowl, stainless steel disks, and a cast iron base that bolts to any surface. To use, simply get the handle turning at 60 rpm's and after 20 seconds release milk into discs to separate whole milk into cream and skim milk. Processes approximately 13 gal per hour. Sells for $205, plus $7.50 S&H.
• You can pasteurize 2-gal. milk bottles in this mini pasteurizer that can also be used to heat treat colostrum. Heat-treats colostrum at a constant temperature of 135? F; pasteurized milk reaches 160?, then shuts off automatically. Sells for $262.50, plus $7.50 S&H.
