Why isn't goat milk easily available?During our childhood, goat milk was not easily available compared to cow milk or buffalo milk. However, goat milk could be arranged. Many people think that goat milk is more beneficial than cow milk. Goat milk is one of healthiest drinks. With its rich cream, high mineral and vitamin content, goat milk can replace many of the supplements which people consume daily. Goat milk is better for most people than cow milk, because it is composed of smaller fat globules which makes it easier to digest. So, in our childhood, we saw many unwell children used to be given goat milk instead of cow milk.
Personally, I have another association with goat milk. During my teen-age, I learnt to milk she-goat from my other 'good-for-nothing' friends.
Keeping aside my personal association, I have noticed that even today goat is reared in many parts of the country. But goat milk has become very rare. In Delhi, goat milk is simply not available. In Kolkata also, I don't see people consuming goat milk nowadays.
Why this is so? When goat is still reared all over India, why goat milk has become so rare? Members may kindly post their comments.
