Milking Sheep and Goats

A dairy farm’s capital is the flock. Future success depends on literally milking that capital to the fullest, while protecting future development.

DeLaval is dedicated to helping dairy farmers maximise profit through professional flock management solutions. This includes flock systems tailored to meet individual quality milk production needs, now and in the future.

Modern, compact parallel sheep and goat parlours from DeLaval are based on years of experience and designed to make the milker’s work both safe and ergonomically sound. The animals are milked from behind giving the operator easy access and a good view of the udder.

Sheep Milk – The Facts

Fact 1

There’s almost twice as much vitamin D in Sheep milk and the calcium in sheep milk is vital in the fight against Osteoporosis.

Fact 2

People are often put off by the high fat level quoted in sheep milk, however remember that the so called “fats” are three fat soluble vitamins Vitamins A,D and E. The other point is that sheep milk is not as high in saturated fatty acids as other milks.

Fact 3

Intolerant to cow or goat milk? Sheep milk, yoghurt and cheeses can be the ideal alternative to many people that are Lactose intolerant.
