Help! My milk is getting goaty flavored. It was wonderful two weeks ago when I chilled it in an ice bath. I clean the udders, sanitize them, squirt the first squirts into a cup to check for any changes (there haven't been any), put the milk in a clean kettle, filter them milk through a coffee filter and chill it in an ice bath right away. I haven't change the feed that I know of. I just think it tastes funny. I wonder if it is the hay. Anyone have any advice. My 2 1/2 year old can only drink goats milk and he notice the change also. He doesn't want to drink it when it tastes funny. It almost makes you feel like you have bad breath after you drink it. We have been drinking it raw. After I thaw it it I think it spoils faster than it should. This is the first spring I have milked. I have to find out how to test for mastitis. One of the does is no longer feeding her babies. She chases them away and they are 12 weeks. I noticed after one jumped up on the milk stand and tried to drink that she had a scratch from the baby on her udder. I think they are very rough.
