It should be about the same, but it really depends on where the goat was raised (that is partially true for cows too. You are not going to get much O3 from brazilian cows). Further, they are browsers, like deer, so they get a more varied diet than sheep or cows, and eat much more leaves and tender wood if given a choice. Now if you are a goat farmer you may use their tendencies and feed them fresh corn plants, tree trimmings or things other than grass.

Do you know if the number will be better than cow cheese regardless?

It will depend on the animal's diet, and also when it was milked. Here in MI they have to give grains to the goats in winter (it is too cold). I buy my goat in early Fall to get those six months of grass in the meat and the highest O3. So you are looking for a number that is all over the place.
