Support Your Local Mom & Pop Yak Milk Shop


In looking at some of the responses to my Tuesday post about Country music, I have become very alarmed. Based upon the comments of several readers that they are doing Google searches for "songs about yaks," I believe that these readers must have gotten a bad vat of yak milk. That can cause bizarre behavior [OK, let's not make any gratuitous comments about The Swami]

Be sure that you are obtaining your yak milk directly from your own yak or from a reputable local market or a national yak milk specialty shop. Be wary of the big-box yak milk retailers as there are concerns that their yak milk may be coming from sweatshops in the Himalayas [attention readers: It would be the milkers, not the yaks, that are sweating. A loyal reader pointed out that yaks apparently do not have sweat glands].

Such information is the reason that soon you will probably be able to qualify for a college degree just by reading this blog. We are planning on waiving a portion of the normal tuition for such degrees.. We want anyone with the ability to take out a six-figure home equity loan to be able to get a degree in yak herding.

Thanks Swami. Very interesting. You might like the info contained in Yampa Valley Yaks in Colorado. I learned a little about Yak milk:

It is a rich creamy color with a high fat content of 5-7 percent. Being so high in fat, it is usually processed into butter, cheese, or yogurt. An average cow will produce 110 kg. Milk in a lactation period of an average of 149 days.

I'd never drink it. No worries there.

I hope you took careful notes on the yak info since it could be helpful if you decide to raise one or more pet yaks.
