JoelinGA, yes the diet can change the taste of the milk, you will just have to figure out what plants they eat you don't like. Separating the billy from the does is a must in my opinion. The billy smells so bad that if he even brushes up against the does they will smell too & milking & handling won't be pleasant
. They pee on their beards & rub it on the does...one of the most disgusting animals I have ever been around!! ewwww! You will have to make a high, non climb STURDY fence. They will go under, over & through to be where they want to be. If he has horns he can lift hotwire with them
to get under so make sure its tight & close to the fence & posts. Good luck! I will have fresh cows milk next summer
mnnn, fresh butter & might even try simple cheese, wonder how hard it is to make fresh mozzarella? It's so good on baguette with fresh pesto & tomato slice..oh my, I can't wait!!
