Not much of a milk drinker. I do like cheese quite a bit, though, and have had it made from cow, goat, sheep, water buffalo, and yak.

That's true enough. We raised hogs when I was growing up. They can be some ornery critters, if the notion strikes 'em.

No one has mentioned the obvious: Human!

I prefer cow's milk to all the others mentioned, but I have to admit that human milk comes in the most attractive containers!

Not if you're a cow, sheep, goat, or camel....

on a funny note, when I was a baby, I did not nurse, so my mother had to pump. One day my father brought home a puppy and quietly he would borrow some of the milk my mother pumped, to nurse the puppy, puppy grew up to be a 120 pounds dog, and we were the best of friends, in russian there is an expression for that, milk brothers, and so we were.

My mom was told by her doctor not to nurse me (a weird phase pediatricians were going through during the late '50s), so just cow and goat for me.

Wow! That was my same dating strategy when I was in my late teens and early 20s.

Good point! My first milk was my momma. Since then mainly cow, tried goat a few times, no opinion. Drinking cow's milk is easier. I do like many cheeses that are cultured from goat's milk. (Gruyere)
