Real Impact has recently bought two milking goats, Alpine x Toggenburg cross. Within a month of arrival both goats had given birth to a healthy kid. Both mothers and kids are thriving in their new home. Real Impact will very soon be able to start milking.
Training courses are available on milking goats.
Goat’s milk is nutritionally superior to cow’s milk. It contains almost twice as much Vitamin A, one and half times as much Vitamin B1, more Riboflavin and less Cholesterol than cow’s milk. It is also easier to digest than cow’s milk and is suitable for people suffering from lactose intolerance.
Goat’s milk is therefore a great alternaitve to cow’s milk especially for young children and the elderly.
In time Real Impact has plans to start yoghurt and cheese production once we have been able to increase our goat herd. Keep checking the website for updates.
