GOAT MILK vs. COW MILK
Milk from dairy goats can be delicious! It's a major source of milk worldwide. It may be drunk by people who are allergic to cow milk, but it contains lactose, so it's not for the lactose intolerant. It has smaller fat globules than cow milk, making it naturally homogenized. It's easier to digest than cow milk.
Goat milk can be used in other ways! Make soaps, lotions, creams, shampoo or other bath or body products.
