Hello.
Milk, without sterilization is not healthy to drink.
Cow, or any animal 's milk is not safe, as it may contain harmful micro organisms like bacteria, virus or parasites,which can't be removed just by refrigeration.
They are mostly removed by proper sterilization like boiling or pasteurization.
So avoid drinking raw milk
You can drink pasteurized milk without boiling further.
