I won't be drinking milk anymore, but I wouldn't mind a few yogurts and cheeses. Which animal dairy source do you think is the best?

It's not about the carbs, besides, sheep's milk is the fattest. It's about the cow's casein A1, which is inflammatory. Do a search about it.

Yes, I know all about the casein, I also know that it depends on the breed of cattle, not all cows have a1 or a2. You are right that sheep milk is more fatty than cows, I had only assumed it'd be equivelant to goats since they're both smaller animals, but I stand by my statement that cows milk is most paleo mainly because I think they're all pretty much the same.

I think ... maybe goat milk is more likely to be raw when you buy it? I really don't know about it.

Alright whoever got downvote happy, please enlighten me as to why the high carb macros of goat and sheep milk are more paleo than fat rich cow milk?

Sheep are probably friendlier than cows or goats, unless it's one of those bighorn rams...they're scary.

Goat and sheep. They're both casein A2, which is same as the human milk. I'd say that goat is even more friendlier, sheep have also been selected a lot more. I've yet to meet one person in Greece (I'm from there), who's dairy intolerant and who consumes goat/sheep fermented dairy (until recently, there were very few cows in Greece).

Also very good dairy, if you can find them in your area: camel, and other types of cow.

The "normal" modern cows have casein A1, which is problematic in many levels. Also, in contrast to goats/sheep, cows are very industrialized.

Well, a lot of people's issue with dairy is the lactose: a) it's a sugar and b) you may lack sufficient lactase to digest it. In which case it's not the animal that's as relevant as the form: Products that are fermented, like hard cheeses and yoghurt, have less lactose than fresh products like milk and ice cream. The longer a cheese is aged, the less lactose it has.
