Sannen- the milk goat
Balik dari the farm we went back to the transit farm. Dr Azhar showed us how to tag goat, deworm, neuter- senang ni pkai getah and then the telur will come off, milk goat, bagi ubat thru mouth. Cucuk bila kembung etc. Very interesting. After makan family angkat's house, bergambor. Encik N siap bekal us with ubi - merah, biru putih. Lovely host. Food semua dari kebun.
Neuter- sonang ajo..
Petang, we had lecture by Agro Bank and UPM. All in all quite a good course. So next step siapkan tanah Meru for kambing.

Goat Milk vs Cow Milk
-Closest to mother's milk
· Nutrient content of goat milk is slightly less than cow milk but goat milk is more digestible because the fat molecules are one-fifth the size of those from cow milk -- making it easily tolerated by those with compromised digestive systems.
· The flavor of goat milk is comparable to that of cow milk. Goat milk has a milder taste.
· Goat milk has no cream separation because of smaller fat molecules. Can drink straight after milking.
· Goat milk contains pre-formed Vitamin A in the milk fat that allows it to be readily available for use by the body.
· Goats milk contains a more highly-evolved good cholesterol than cows milk, making it more available for absorption to the brain and body. (Cholesterol is essential to the health of the myelin sheaths "white matter" of the nerves in the brain.)
· Goat milk has an alkaline reaction the same as mother's milk. Cow milk has an acid reaction
· Goat milk does not form mucous (phlegm) and is therefore better tolerated by asthmatics and those with allergies.
· Goat milk contains more chlorine, fluorine and silicon than any other domestic livestock. Chlorine and fluorine are natural germicides and fluorine assists in preventing diabetes.
· Goat milk contains 2% curd, which precipitates in the stomach. Cows milk is 10% curd.
· Goats milk is tolerated by a compromised /damaged liver because of the smaller fat molecules and it's naturally homogenized.
· Goats milk has the ability to "sweeten" the intestinal tract and assist with constipation.
Three different medium chain fatty acids found in goat milk are thought to have health benefits for people with certain types of diseases, especially diseases involving metabolism. Some of these conditions include cystic fibrosis, gallstones, heart disease, and various digestive problems.
Goat milk has three times more of these types of medium chain fatty acids than cow milk.Goat's milk contains less of the enzyme xanthine oxidase than cow's milk. When this enzyme enters the bloodstream, it can create scar tissue on the heart. This, in turn, causes the body to produce cholesterol for protection.
A cup of goat's milk has almost 33 percent of the recommended daily allowance for calcium, compared to almost 30 percent of the recommended daily allowance for calcium in a cup of cow's milk.A cup of goat milk also supplies more protein than a cup of cow milk, almost nine grams of protein compared to about eight grams of protein in cow milk.
