Un-pasteurized milk

Hi there

My daughter is now 2 /4months old. Up to now I''ve been giving her NAN HA2. I''ve been diluting her bottle as she eats well. Anyway, my husband wants me to rather give her un-pasteurized milk, we got 2 cows which my laberour milks and only use a cloth to filter the milk, no boiling etc (I''ve got no idee how to pasterize milk)
Is this safe? My hubby gave her some of this milk yesterday mixed with water 50/50 and she loves it.
Advice would be appreciated

If your cows have been tested and you are 100% certain that their milk is safe,then there is no problem giving your daughter this milk.
