Does the color of a cow affect its milk?

No but the breed can affect how much you get, how it is fed can affect quality and flavor somewhat as well. This why there are breeds that are considered "dairy" cows and breeds that are considered "beef" cattle, the beef cattle breeds do not give as much milk or as consistently. Dairy cows give lots of milk and for longer than beef cattle but their meat is not as plentiful or good as beef cattle.

Deana you might like to check my answer to that latest "Why was my answer removed" question. I think we have a site fault that's likely to cause a few more similar questions.

No, Milk is always white. You're thinking of eggs.

Not really, chocolate eggs would be kinda gross especially with bacon.

I'm a friend. That picture is from "The Outlaw Josey Wales". One of my all time favorite movies. It's Clint Eastwood. Probably my favorite Movie Star, director, producer and all around good guy even though I don't know him personally.

Not the color but the breed. Those black and white cows that most milk comes from are called Holsteins. There are other dairy cows that are brown called Jerseys and others called Guernseys. Jersey milk has more cream and a richer flavor. Guernsey milk has more cream than Holstein but a little less than Jersey. Guernsey has a little bit different kind of lactose and it has Beta-Carotene and more protein. My favorite kind of milk is Raw Whole Guernsey. I wish I had a big glass of it right now. Mmmmm good!

No but it does matter what kind of cow it is. Angus cow isn't a milk cow but a wholesteen cow is.

I thought Angus Cows gave licorice flavored milk.

New breed introduced... Angus? ... What's a Texas Steer? And why does it resemble a water buffalo? We have none of these in NJ.
Report as
Angus cattle first arrived in the U. S. from Scotland in the late 1800's. They are beef cattle not used for milk production.
A Texas Steer is a steer from Texas. You know what a steer is right? It's like a bull but it's missing a couple of things.
See? I got all serious on you again.
I'll give you a helpful hint. Never try to milk a bull.
Report as
I don't know about the Water Buffalo but I don't think I'd try to milk one of those either.
