Some goats are just like that. Not usually Saanens though. Are you milking before feeding? Giving at least 4 hours (or longer if possible) between when they last ate to when you milk them will clean up the milk. Also giving baking soda will raise the butter fat and clean up the taste a bit. A cup a day I would think would do it. Just some things to try.

I am working so I can't really feed and wait 4hours before milking,thus I milk whilst she feeds...My goats have tapeworm now so I have treated them for it and is currently not using their milk...will look into the baking soda when I can start using the milk again-thanks for the advice...
