Does anyone know why we don't use pig's milk?

Cows, goats and sheep all seem to be fair game, but why don't we have pig cheese?

[Serious question, honestly - references to Rebecca Loos not welcomed]

Apparently it's not feasible to milk, breed, farrow and remove the baby pigs to milk the sow.

I guess they have very small teats too, so it'd be virtually impossible to milk a sow either by hand or machine.

According to internet sources, people who have tried to milk sows have only got a pitifully poor amount from each.

Reminds me of Lee & Herring, where Herring tried a different animal's milk each week - "this week - sasquatch milk!"

Standing in the queue in Tesco the other week I spied bottles of Cat Milk!

How I laughed when I realised it was infact not expressed feline milk but merely cows milk treated so as not to upset cat tummies!

I seem to remember one of our crew quite keen on the idea of giving it a go down at the farm on the cider weekend. I'm not going to say who to protect his identities.

Lee and Herring's show was great (or was it just on when i got back from the pub) - what ever happened?

As the original "him" to post with multiple identities, bloke(blake/biro), are you protesting a bit too much??

what Ivanhoe housemartin/manilow or tharg/ex cathy aren't men of many identities? Too much protesting on all sides methinks...

red bus - probably a combination of the both...it was great, but it was also repeated at about 11.30pm on a Friday!!! Might have been the beer goggles then!

just to get back to the topic for a second, horse's milk seems to be another interesting flavour:

"Horse milk could soon be coming to a doorstep near you after demand for the nutritionally rich product has surged across mainland Europe."

Apparently they are a bit scarier when it comes to kicking out as they are milked though...

Great find Mark.

I'm no animal expert, but can't remember seeing a horse with prominent udders (happy to be corrected). If you can milk a horse, why not a pig?

[Esp. as the only pigs I've seen nursing do it lying down, thus, I imagine, making them easier to get to than a horse, and with less risk of the milker getting kicked]

Can I suggest that we try to start off an "if you press it.." phenomenon by popping into Neal's Yard Dairy the next time you're around and asking for pig's cheese? I reckon that it would only need a small critical mass before we see Fay Maschler campaigning for it in the Std.
