LOL it is true... some goat milk is :sick
Usually because of handling then because of it being from a goat.

I have heard sheep milk is great... never had any though:hu

I have dairy goats. Now I am thinking seriously about getting a couple East Friesian/Lacoune cross lambs.
I am curious about what to expect as far as quantity of milk per sheep. Flavor as well.
I milk 4 Fresians and get about 3 gallons a day total (+/-) for the 2 daily sessions. But 1 of those is very young and super finicky about the whole thing so she brings our average down a bit. Right now we feed a bit of wet beer grain with some pellets during sessions, but I'm thinking about trying some molasses mixed in with the pellets for summer since the wet grain is not holding up too well.
