  Goat's milk is quite different from cow's milk in both flavor and nutritional content and both goat and sheep milk are more easily digested.

In many parts of the world, goat's milk is preferred to cow's milk. Even in the United States, the goat is gaining popularity. Goats eat less and occupy less grazing space than cows, and in some families the backyard goat supplies milk for family needs. Goat's milk is believed to be more easily digestible and less allergenic than cow's milk. Goat's milk contains around ten grams of fat per eight ounces compared to 8 to 9 grams in whole cow's milk. Unlike cow's milk, goat's milk does not contain agglutinin. As a result, the fat globules in goat's milk do not cluster together, making them easier to digest.
