Drinking Sheep vs. Goat Milk

I love sheep, I can’t deny it! I love how much they depend on their master for all their needs. I love their floppy ears and their beautiful “fluff” coats. I love sheep cheese, though I have never tasted their raw milk. It is my dream to have a few sheep for milking (and yes I plan on drinking it ….have you noticed my need for some extra fat?). Since raising my own is not possible today, then I will at least take time to compare sheep’s milk from the more popular goat’s milk, so I’ll be more mindfully prepared for when they roam around the farm. Below is a comparison from Nutrition Data

Sheep Milk (1cup)                                               Goats Milk (1cup)

Fat: 17 g.                                                                     Fat: 10 g.

Carbs: 13 g.                                                                Carbs: 11 g.

Protein: 14.5 g.                                                          Protein: 8.5 g.

Calcium: 47% DV                                                      Calcium: 33% DV

Vitamin A: 7%                                                           Vitamin A: 10%

Vitamin C: 17%                                                          Vitamin C: 5%

Vitamin D: Not listed                                                Vitamin D: 7%

Omega-3 fatty acids: 311 mg                                  Omega-3 fatty acids: 97.6 mg

Omega-6 fatty acids: 443 mg                                  Omega-6 fatty acids: 266 mg

Note: These results were taken from pasteurized milk, raw milk nutrition data will compare differently. See: Which do you Choose?

    I come from Greece and sheep’s milk is extremely popular here. It’s rich in fat and mostly used for making yogurt, cheese and butter. People don’t usually drink it though. They prefer pasteurized and homogenized Holstein cow’s milk and raw milk is prohibited in Greece anyway.

    Sheep’s milk is quite delicious. It is very, very rich, like heavy cow’s milk cream. Whereas goat’s milk has a strong “taste of the beast”, sheep’s milk doesn’t have a specific “taste” to it. It literally tastes like drinking heavy cream. Also, the color is a beautiful “French vanilla ice cream yellow” – it LOOKS rich and thick, and tastes like it looks.
