Raising Goats

by Heather

Every time I feed my kid milk he acts like he is sick afterwords. He stumbles around and makes different noises then he normally does. This doesn't last longer than a few hours. Can goats be lactose intolerant?


ANSWER: I have never heard of a goat being lactose intolerant. You should be feeding the baby either goat milk or a quality goat milk replacer (neither has much lactose to speak of). I haven't ever seen a kid behave the way you describe. You may have to resort to a good goat vet if it doesn't clear up soon.

Good Luck,
