Question
Hi,

Do you give your children pure goat milk? Does it suit infants?

You once told me that your goats give sweet milk. What is the breed?

Thanks

Answer
I give it to my grandchildren. They are breastfed for several years and then they get goat milk. Many people find it superior to cow milk, which is what most people in the USA drink. The breed of goats that I raise is called Oberian, or mini Oberhasli. They are a cross between a Nigerian Dwarf and an Oberhasli.
