This week on Cutting the Curd, Anne Saxelby sits us down to teach us more about the fabric of all dairy: milk. Anne traces the roots of human production of milk from various mammals, starting with goats and sheep. Tune in and learn about everything from seasonal breeding to the properties of ruminants. What took us so long to start milking cows? Find out on Cutting the Curd! This episode was sponsored by Cabot Cooperative. For more information visit
