Does anyone know how to make powder milk from farm milk ?

I'm afraid powdered milk such as you buy from the store is not manufacturable in the home. Both methods that I am familiar with are industrial processes requiring equipment that isn't replicable on a very small scale for personal use.

Fluid milk can be pressure canned but the resulting product leaves much to be desired though it does have baking uses. Alternatively, you could make cheese and/or butter both of which are traditional ways of preserving milk.
