Goat Show two: Dairy goats

                             Another fun interlude 
            at the Boulder County Fairgrounds. 
     Today Dairy goats were the stars of the show.  
65 percent of the population of the world drinks goat's milk, in America cow's milk is still the favorite.

On average, goats produce about one gallon of milk per day, unlike a cow, which produces four times that amount. Goat's milk has higher amounts of vitamin A, riboflavin, calcium, potassium, and niacin,  And because of the small fat globules and slightly lower lactose content it is easier to digest. Goat milk does contain more calories and is not lactose free. 
                            Hi, Nice to meet you. 
Nubians and Nigerian Dwarf goats (like my fur babies) generally have the mildest, sweetest, and highest butterfat milk. 
 Never saw so many blue-eyed goats! 

        If looking for milk production rather than specific flavor, Alpines and Saanens are a good choice.
                      Looks like a winner Alpine.
Such a gorgeous dappled coat.
It's okay, this LaMancha 
is supposed to have tiny external ears!
They are generally also polled (without horns).
Good even-tempered dairy goats. 

What a pretty face.

Little Nubians, hungry babies.
Such cute hangy-down ears. 

                                            Bye, for now. 
                           Thanks for a fun morning Carol!
                                                     The End
