Milk cooling alone accounts for about 30% of the total energy costs of operating a dairy. Goats are browsing animals and are easier and cheaper to manage than cattle. The goats can be milked any number of time during the day, so there is no need to store the milk. Goats produce about 2% only of the world's total annual milk supply. The potential of savings is huge in terms of energy and money by increasing the production of goat milk. The value of savings of energy is from 376 - 1191 GWh/year for 50% production of goat milk of total milk supply in India. The value of money saved by producing 50% goat milk of total milk supply in India can be 1880 - 5995 million Rs/year.
