Oh if I were independently wealthy and lived on my farm. I'd drive a big trailer there to get them.

It's feasible for me to drive down there, but we don't have room for a yak. I would like to try Yak milk and/or butter sometime. Do you sell any?

No, not at this time. We raise our yaks for meat. Yaks are extremely feed efficient, and eat about a third of what typical beef cattle eat. Consequently, they also produce very little milk-the babies just don't need much to thrive. Their teats are much smaller, too, which makes it difficult to milk them. There are studies being done in Tibet right now (thanks to Land O'Lakes sponsorship) in regard to the nutritional properties of yak milk. The meat is mugh more nutritious than typical beef, and preliminary studies have shown that the same is true about the milk. I'm sure as time goes on, there will be more attention paid to yak milk, thus more US producers.
