Milk Bottle

Mrs. Sandburg spent thirty years of her life researching and putting into practice breeding methods that improved the goat’s ability to produce milk that was high in butterfat. She believed goat’s milk was better for human consumption than cow’s milk. Sandburg said of his wife, “…it is a genius with her and the goat industry idolizes her for her knowledge and lighted enthusiasms.”
