Cheese Yield vs. Milk Solids
This is a topic not many lay cheesefanatics know about: the influence of milk solids on the yield of cheese.
The higher the Solids – being Fat, Protein( these are the ones important in cheese making) – the higher the yield of cheese out of a certain volume of milk.
Generally cow’s milk gives a higher yield than goat’s milk.
Thus you need more goat’s milk to make a kilo/pound of cheese than you would with cow’s milk.
