The fat is fine.
The carb is difficult for many, easy for some to digest. It is mostly fermentable though, so you could go for the fermented dairy and be ok if you have difficulty digesting lactose.
The protein is the trickiest because it's not as easy to ferment. If you have difficulty digesting it, like many do, you shouldn't have much dairy except butter or ghee.
I had serious digestive trouble with dairy for years... then tried raw.
Raw dairy is not a problem for me at all, whereas standard pasteurized/homogenized milk was a big problem.
So I use some raw milk, and 10-15% fat content greek style yogurt and a occasionally little cheese for fermented dairy.
Some people have more trouble with the digestion of it than others... thus the reason some people feel the need to remove it from their diet completely... or for weight loss.
Others avoid it because of the carb count if they are aiming for Low or VL carb numbers for weight loss.
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
Cow's dairy is problematic for me, whereas goat's/sheep's isn't due to differences in the caesin.
The sugar is not a problem at all as far as I'm concerned, as it is fructose free.

People say to drink full fat milk instead of skim/2% because the sugar/carb content is higher when there's less fat.
I checked the back of the cartons. Theres a 1 gram difference in carbs between the 2% and whole milk. BFD(BigFarkinDeal)
