Goat milk is the healthiest milk (of available milks) and has suspected cancer preventing properties, but only if raw. And I'm not sure about this but
I'm starting to suspect there's some certain gene/chemical/bloodtype connection to some people's problems with not only raw milk, but wheat, sugar,
you name it. A human system is more complex sometimes than at first glance
My personal suspicion (and that of my nutrition teacher) is that humans should not be drinking any kind of milk regularly after the age of around 12.
All i know is it has a clean taste and lasts longer and I can get it unpasteurized and LOCALLY produced. I know my goat guy, his name is Terry and
really like him. It's sad he just retired and now I have to find a new "goat guy"
The taste also I imagine depends on the breed and what you allow
it to eat (there are certain meat vs dairy goats, lots of species actually). The types of goat cheese you can get are delicious and come in a huge
variety now. I imagine they contain less radiation considering goats eat considerably less grass than cows? I wish they released all that kind of
information (didn't they used to?). I've mostly just become addicted to using goat as my main red meat once I found it at my farmers market.
It doesn't smell up your place when cooking like lamb, i use the ground goat just like beef in chilis, soups, hamburgers, bolagnese, stroganoff,
meatloaf, swedish meatballs. My dinner guests ask for my recipes and are shocked when i tell them its goat. Way leaner, less polluted meat, easier to
raise, less impact and lower resources used, adaptable to most climates, eats anything, they are also a smart animal that when used with chickens can
protect and benefits from a mutual relationship. They are used in my area rented by the city to clear out public areas infested with stickers too. A
milkable, edible animal that will also do a job?
They kind of seem like a super-food animal. Very healthy, versatile and efficient. I have a healthy respect for this animal and show thanks everytime
they feed me.
