Cow, goat, sheep. I didn't like the goat milk, but I love goat cheese. Found the sheep really hard to milk.

Interesting article, Mel. I've had the usual suspects, nothing exotic. Not real fond of goat cheese.

Well, even if you did, chances are you would not be able to get much if any and that at chance to loose your hand or a whole arm. Pigs jaw is incredible crushing machne, much stronger of that than a dog, and much more vishes than a mean pitbull animal, you really don't want to take your chances. Unless you can become really mean and tight that animal and abuse, but than you have to deal with even more vishea animal by the name of PITA....

As far as milk, I love raw goat milk, well processed too. I think it is the best milk ever, Kumis or Kumus, however it is spelled is really sour and reminded me of sour milk or even butter milk or something in between. Never had sheep milk or any other ones for that matter, but love cheeses, sheep, goat Buffalo. Yum.

The guy in the article had to sneak up on a sleeping sow, quickly squeeze a teat, then run away. He was able to get only a small amount of pig milk.

Off topic. Generally speaking American dairy is in a very-very poor state compare to Europian, for example.

I'm with the mainstream - cow, goat and sheep. I don't mind goat's milk but it isn't my favourite, and the sheep's milk I didn't care for at all. But I do like both goat and sheep cheese.

I found sheep very hard to milk--they seem to "suck it up." Goats are a lot easier to milk, but if there is a billy in the herd, the milk is too strong for my taste, but I do like goat (and sheep) cheese.
