Goatucation: My Rich Milk

As you know I am not just a SpokesGoat. 
I am also a milk goat.
Although right now I am on break from being milked because my kid is due soon. 
But my main job on the Farm is provide rich milk for the publicist and male person to drink and to use to make my rich soap. The publicist also makes cheese, ice cream and caramel sauce with my milk. And well Abby's and Mallory's too.

Goat's milk is very good for you humans. It is full of good stuff; it has 13% more calcium, 25% more B6, 47% more Vitamin A and 27% more selenium than big ole cow's milk. It also has more potassium, niacin and other minerals. So there is no reason to keep the cow's in business. Not to mention the fact that my rich milk tastes delicious! It is also good for humans that are lactose intolerant - they can usually drink goat's milk.

So knowing all of this why would you all not go out and get yourselves a goat or two?
Just look at this face - how can you resist?

  3. I think most people in the US would be surprised to hear that over half the world's population drinks goat's milk. It's a great way to have access to your own fresh, healthy milk!

  4. I can't wait to have our own goat's milk! Do you manually milk? Do you process the milk in any way? And how long do you wait before you start "sharing" the supply with the baby/ies?

  5. I absolutely agree! Everyone should have a goat,or Two, or three.....

  6. Oh, I wish I could have a goat in my back yard! You should offer a rent-a-goat! :)

  7. Oh! I'm going to have to try goat's milk- I'm lactose intolerant and can't have the cow kind. I had no idea that lactose intolerant people could usually drink goat milk. :)

  8. Well, I, for one, certainly can't resist that face! I love, love, love my two goat boys...unfortunately, I haven't figured out a way to convince them to give me some of that yummy goat milk yet! lol

  9. That face is indeed irresistible! You forgot to mention that goats are a lot cuter than cows too.

  10. I'm working on getting a couple of goats! I love goat cheese and I love using the goat's milk in soaps, creams, etc. I don't drink milk of any kind straight (barf...literally) Thank you Pricilla for all that lovely goat's milk so the Publicist can make such yummy things and those fabulous goat's milk soaps!

  14. You are so pretty. My goats are due to start having their kids soon also. I hope to use some of the milk for goat's milk soap later on.

  15. Our landlord doesn't allow pets, gosh darn it, or else I'd had my own nanny goats in panties, instead I rely on you for the lingeried ruminant photos!

  16. Oh, I'd LOVE to have a goat, Pricilla. Weirdville doesn't allow them, sadly--although I think they allow everything else. But a goat wouldn't be happy here--we don't have much room to move around or yummy things to eat. And you might fall in the pond.

  17. Can a person go to the local grocery store and buy goat's milk or do they need a goat for that?

    With all those nutrients I'd drink it for sure. I don't drink much milk anymore, don't really know why, just got out of the habit.

  18. what a face....

    and we tried our luck at pygmy goats....FAIL.

  19. Goat's milk sounds wonderful but where do you get it without having a goat? If you don't get milked do you keep making milk?

  20. The humans would love to have a goat, but they don't think their neighborhood is zoned for it - we live smack in the middle of Los Angeles. And it would probably be hard to find a goat sitter when they have out-of-town business. It's hard enough finding a good cat sitter!
