New Zealand Deer Cheese

New Zealand entrepreneur Graeme Shaw is starting the world's first commercial deer cheese operation. Milking the deer is apparently a bit of a challenge, but the cheese itself is said to taste good. I'd definitely give it a try.

Naw... this one's too easy. I'll leave it for the peanut gallery to practice on.

Oh dear .. this story just curdled my skin.
Sorry if I horned into the possible puns.

Back to the stag party now. I took a shot at it though.

I challenge the novelty.
Reindeer cheese was for sale in Lapland in 1838. It was recorded in "Travels in various countries of Scandinavia, including Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Lapland and Finland", by Edward Daniel Clarke (Google eBook).

Deer look to be a bit more limber than a cow. I suppose they could get that back leg around to give a good kick to the side like a cow only more so. And those hooves can be really sharp while the cow hoof is more like a hammer.

I wouldn't want to be sitting milking while that leg comes around for a blow. :shut:

As for the cheese, I suppose the taste is dependent upon the fermentation process. There are some really rank cow, sheep and goat cheeses you couldn't pay me to eat.

I want to see Rabbit Cheese. A few years ago I read ( NOTW ) about a pharmeceutical company that had paid to develop a Rabbit milking machine. The idea was that whatever drug they were trying to get, it would be easier and less trouble for the Rabbits to extract it from milk than blood. So why not Rabbit Cheese?

This dude is soooo late to the party.

The camel cheese is apparently fairly popular in North Africa.

I've heard that camels are popular there too!

Wasn't there an article here a while back about a mouse milking machine?
Now think about how mice love cheese...
Mouse Cheese! The perfect mousetrap bait!

I draw the line at goat cheese. That is as far as I'll go.

Cheese from sheep is good, too. Roquefort is one. Feta is either all sheep or a mixture of sheep and goat. And Mozzarella is from water buffalo.

You start mixing your sheep and goats, Scottie, and they'll throw you out of the club.
