Goats milk is easier for digestion, and the meat is lean. Goat produces a unique flavor as well, resulting in special tasting milk and additional products. Meanwhile their milk production is less than that produced by a cow.
A good dairy goat provides between 6 to 12 pounds of milk a day for about a 305-day lactation. A good dairy cow provides almost five times that amount. It takes more work to maintain a herd of goats than it does a herd of cows, and the same number of cows will yield more milk.
