    I had goats milk for a while, but couldn't really see much difference. Back to full fat cows milk, mostly because it is cheaper.

    no beta casein A1 in goat's milk - beta casein A1 may not be an issue, though, unless you eat wheat.

    At 16 months our daughter has just finished human milk and now drinks goat milk, so I've done some research. Goat milk tends to have higher levels of calcium, selenium, manganese, magnesium, and copper. It also has less alpha-s1 casein protein in it than cow's milk (the stuff that some people are allergic to). The fat molecules are much smaller so it is naturally homogenized (with some settling however). On the downside goat milk has 1/10 the amount of folate as in cow's milk--although neither is a great source for the vitamin. Also, not all brands are fortified with Vitamin D3. So far I've found only Meyenberg brand to be. Yes. It's also much more expensive.

    Supposedly I drank goat milk when I was a child... umm.

    I like the goat yogurt I buy from the farmer's market. YUMM.

    If I do dairy, preferably it's goat.

    Tbh I don't like the taste of goats milk, it's a bit more sour/chalky, not sure how to describe the flavour. It probably has some benefits over normal cows milk though.

    Apparently, goat's milk has a higher proportion of medium chain fatty acids than cow's milk. Also, it is more alkaline than cow's milk, for those who are into that...

    I plan to give it a try.
