Quite often goatmilk is prescribed in hospitals in these countries. In Australia, there is so much demand for goat’s milk, that it is about six times more expensive than cow’s milk.
Goats are clean animals that will never eat dirt from the ground. When grazing a pasture they choose preferably the young shoots and the juicy tender grass clumps. All nutrients are absorbed through the digestive system and processed into milk. Perhaps this is why this milk has such a beneficial and fortifying effect on children and some sick people.
The milk has a higher protein and mineral content than milk from women. In many parts of the world goatmilk is used as a substitute for breast milk for young babies and children. Many dog breeders feed their puppies with goatmilk to get beautiful and healthy descendants and because the dogs suffer less from diarrhea when drinking this milk .

For people with stomach problems who cannot bear cow’s milk, goat milk can be an excellent substitute. Also adolescents who suffer from acne, can benefit from goat’s milk, as well as asthma patients and people who suffer from a certain type of eczema. Goat milk is also recommended to people who often have migraines.
