Question
Hi,

1. Which animal has the more delicious milk? Sheep or goat?

2. From these two animals, which animal produces more milk?

3. Which animal is easier to take care for?

Thanks!

Answer
Good day Jem!
here are my answers to your questions:
1) Goat milk is more delicious than sheep milk.
2) unless you are raising polypay sheep, goats produce more milk
3) goats are easier to take care of and are less prone to diseases and they can manage a wider range of food sources than sheep,

good luck in your endeavors!

Expertise

I can answer most questions about raising, breeding, feeding, showing,typical illnesses, pregnancy, birthing, bottle feeding,showing and sheering sheep. I have raised sheep for show and production for 20 years. The breeds of sheep I am most familier with are Crossbred, Suffolk, Hampshire- basically black face sheep. I deal with the classification of meat sheep over bred for wool sheep.

Experience

I have raised a flock of sheep for 20 years on our farm. Very involved in 4H, FFA aspects and their rules, jackpot shows, state, regional, county and local shows.

Education/Credentials
Experience is my best creditial however, I have a college education and have taught many classes ( in other catagories), so I am familiar in the ways of teaching others.

Awards and Honors
Many breed awards- champion and grand champion awards in Kansas for the past 20 years, showmanship awards at local and state level in Kansas.
