My understanding is that if you feed a goat cow food, the milk will taste like cow milk. But ... goats are browsers, not grazers.

So, at least for me, it's not the MILK that causes the problems, so it must be the PASTURIZATION!

Two little kids born yesterday to two different mums - both first-timers. All went well and is going well with baby and mum number one, but mum number 2 rejected her baby and ran off straight after giving birth . We tried really hard to get her to take an interest but she was having none of it. She didn't mind me milking some colostrum (first time ever milking for me!) and baby was happy to suck it off my fingers (we had no bottles). We have now separated the two of them in a pen on the other side of the farm so hopefully she'll accept her wee girl now.
Still one more doe to go but she's not a first-timer so fingers crossed.
