Is this Colostrum? My sisters goat is due this week. I have only seen cow and I don’t remember it being so “pasty”. Thank you for any help ☺️

Didn't see post earlier. Yes, sometime the very first coming out will be that thick. If milked a little bit will thin but, even then it's pretty much as thick as very cold heavy cream or syrup would be. Yes, it's normally yellowish.

The smaller breeds, with normally heavy butterfat milk can be that thick. You'll get a few tablespoons of that, then thinner, more like syrup.

It's packed with nutrition...new goats only suckle a couple spoonfuls at a time at first. This is what gets them going. 🤗. Concentrated.

Has she had the kids?

No. That is a waxy substance that plugs the orifices to keep bacteria out.
Colostrum is just thick, yellowish milk.
