Most milk can be frozen. However, milk should be transferred to an air-tight, freezer-safe container prior to freezing. Many types of milk will also separate and become grainy after being frozen, but this can easily be fixed by using a blender.

I would not freeze milk. I only buy UDT Long Life anyway. Used to use powder but needs mixing etc.

Yes.  Only if it’s before the use-by date. If it’s plastic bottles, open each one and tip ½ a cup or so into a spare bottle.  Milk expands.  It makes a mess in the freezer.  Put the caps on tightly.  Under pressure, sometimes they leak. If it’s cardboard containers you might be ok but put each one in a ziploc bag – or better, transfer the milk to a bottle or an icecream container. Mark the freezing date on the bottle.  The number of days between this and the use-by date gives you an idea about how fast to use it when you defrost it.
