I am prepping for boot camp, and I've been using whole goat milk powder as a source of protein (among with goat whey, and animal proteins in general). I then came across a research claiming that dry milk has "oxidized cholesterol" which is bad for us. But, these sites also generally claim that normal cholesterol (such as in butter) is bad for us too. I know that normal cholesterol in foods such as butter is not bad for us, but what about oxidized cholesterol? I am afraid that using goat milk powder will give my blood a high cholesterol content, which can get me DQ'd.
I have 24 oz of dry milk (150 mg of cholesterol) to my use, maybe it's too miniscule to consider it a damage?

From my reading, oxidized cholesterol levels in milk powders measured during the last decade or two have been quite low, we're talking a couple of micrograms per gram at most. Nothing I would personally worry too much about.
