How Does Goat’s Milk
Compare to Cow’s Milk?
“A goat’s milk is meant to get a kid goat from 6-8 pounds to 15o-180 pounds. With a newborn calf, that milk is meant to help it grow from 70-100 pounds to a 1,500 pound fully grown cow. Which one of those mammals gives milk that would be more bio-dynamically appropriate for a 6-8 pound human baby? The goat milk because it’s so similar to a human mother’s milk.” – Joe Stout
On this week’s episode, we’re once again diving deep into dairy products by discussing different alternatives to milk as well as debating which is better: goat’s milk or cow’s milk? We’ve got Mt. Capra President, Joe Stout, joining us to share his insight into how the two different milks compare. Plus, we discuss some other interesting goat milk related topics such as:
- How Mt. Capra runs their goat farm and what they’re doing to make it more sustainable.
- In the sense of casein and milk allergens, which is better cow’s or goat’s milk?
- Lactose intolerance vary with different dairy products and what causes it to happen.
- How Joe and his team at Mt. Capra fed their goats during the winter before using the hydroponic barley fodder system.
- A look at the various products that Mt. Capra creates and sells in their stores and online such as:
- Berry Whey
- Goat Milk Ghee
- Ingredients used to make the goat milk formula
Milk on a Global Scale
When it comes to cow’s milk vs goat’s milk. One thing to keep in mind is how each is consumed on a global scale. Goat’s are much more economic; especially in third world conditions plus they have lots of nutrients and their milk is easier to digest than cow’s milk. In fact, many people, especially children, are allergic to cow’s milk. It’s actually the no. 1 allergen for children under three years old.

Milk Alternatives for Coffee and More
This week in our Open Sky Fitness Facebook Group, we had a great question come up. What are some potential milk alternatives for coffee, cereal, protein shakes, and smoothies?
First of all, we don’t recommend anything like Coffee Mate or International Delight because they’re not whole, healthy, nutritious alternatives to actual milk.
What we do recommend includes:
- Lactaid milk
- Soy milk
- Almond milk
- Coconut milk
- Rice milk
- Cashew milk
- Flax milk
- Hemp milk
Rob’s Cashew/Almond Milk
Coffee Creamer Recipe:
All you need to make your own homemade cashew or almond milk coffee creamer are three ingredients:
- Purified water
- Cashews or almonds
For the unsweetened plain version, follow these 3 easy steps:
- Take a half cup of cashews or almonds and soak them in 1.5 cups of purified water with a small pinch of salt for 2 -12 hours
- Drain the cashews, discard the soaking liquid, and rinse the cashews.
- Using a high – speed blender, place the cashews or almonds in the blender and start with the lowest speed and work your way up to the highest speed until creamy. It takes about 2 minutes to completely blend the cashews.
To sweeten the coffee creamer, just add either raw maple syrup or raw honey with a couple of drops of vanilla extract.
