Kentucky Dairy Goats There are a lot of people in the world who have never tried goat milk, and these people are missing out. Goat milk first began being produced in Kentucky in 2007, but it has long been used and enjoyed by people all over the world - for as long as there have been goats! A lot of other countries actually prefer goat's milk to cow's milk and use it more frequently. Not only does goat's milk provide different and better nutrients than cow's milk, but goats are also easier and less expensive to keep, raise, and produce milk from.

One of the main reasons that drinking goat's milk is a good idea is because this milk contains different, healthier fats than traditional cow's milk. Since goat's milk doesn't contain agglutinin, the fat in the milk doesn't clump together, thus making it easier to digest than cow's milk, even for those with lactose issues. Goat's milk also has more linoleic and arachnodonic acids, both essential fatty acids, than cow's milk.

In addition to having different fats than cow's milk, goat's milk also has different proteins. The protein in goat milk makes for a softer curd. This, in turn, makes it easier for the human body to digest the protein from the milk. It is also important to note that many people who are allergic to the proteins in cow's milk are not allergic to the proteins in goat's milk, so this is an excellent choice for those struggling to get calcium through cow's milk or who are lactose intolerant. Also, goat's milk contains less lactose than cow's milk.

In addition to all of these great facts, goat's milk also contains important minerals and has a rich, robust flavor that many prefer over cow's milk. While not everyone will take to drinking goat milk on a daily basis, it is definitely worth a try or two.
