Anyway, sometimes it tastes "grassy" but never "gamey." I know that w/ goats that gamey milk is a result of having bucks around. Not sure if that is an issue with cows.
Not sure the breed. Somehing heritage I think maybe Devon.
Before I got that and was drinking the Organic Valley, the only kind they sell here is the ultra-pasteurized, so it always had a certain cooked taste.

I think the milk tastes awful. Very gamey. And I grew up on a dairy farm and drank a lot of milk straight from the cow, so I know it's not just me. (Those cows were holsteins and brown swiss, though, which could make some difference.)
