    Is it safe to feed calves goat milk?If it is can they have it at any age? I have some calves all ages and was wondering if they would get all they needed from goats milk?

    Perfectly safe and will raise them better than any milk replacements. Anything God made, goats milk will raise.

    According to the lady who bought a milking goat from me, "It tastes like melted ice cream and it's almost 1/2 cream!"

    Goat milk is good for humans.

    It is perfectly fine and safe to feed goat milk to calves.I know of several people that uses it and it does a fine job.We milked goats for 7 years and raised 2 calves on it.
    They are several ways of doing it and IMO some I would not suggest.But for the most part people have different ways of doing things. :) David
