Question by Mia: Is there a machine that makes cream from goats milk?
I want to be able to be partly self sufficient, firstly with chickens and then with goats. This way I will be able to get milk. I have found a milking machine but i don’t know how to get cream from that milk. The process seems too difficult to do it myself I was wondering if there was a machine I could use. So far I haven’t fount anything. Any help, please?

  1. They do make goat-milk cream separators, although I have never had one and I can’t say how well they work.

    I have Nigerian Dwarf goats, and if I leave their milk in the fridge overnight, it develops a thin layer on top, which I assume is the cream that has risen. Nigerian Dwarfs have a higher butterfat content in their milk, so this might be why.

  2. Yes they do make cream separators. You can get them through Caprine Goat Supply, Hoegger Goat, pretty much any goat supply. Milk machines do not take the cream out, they just “milk” the goat, by suction cups. Any milk that you get by using a milk machine or by hand, will have cream.
    Any fresh milk, when left to sit overnight in the fridge, the cream in it will rise to the top. You can normally scoop it off.

  3. Please visit this website for a great selection of affordable cream separators:

    This video shows a small cream separator that can process up to 15 Gallons per Hour and works great with goat’s milk:

    Here is one more video with a larger model cream separator, 26 Gallons per Hour

    Both videos show goat’s milk separation.
