Do all water buffalo give milk?

Postby veralidaine » Thu Nov 05, 2009 11:58 pm


I don't drink cow's milk so I've been researching other milk-giving animals (I don't like goat's milk) and water buffalo have caught my eye. Apparently both their milk and meat are very tasty and healthy. The thing is, when I see them for sale on exotic groups' classifieds, some say specifically milking water buffalo and others don't say anything about it. What's more, one website I saw claimed to be the only ones selling milk-giving water buffalo or something to that effect. This seems odd to me, why would certain water buffalo give milk and not others? So I thought I'd see if any of you guys know about this.

Thanks for any answers,

All mammals give milk but some can be bred to give more milk than others. Camel milk is most like human milk so would be healthy. They use it for babies in other countries.
