Yes, it's harder. unless you let the milk sour (which does help the cream rise; but with goat butter OMG the taste!) you essentially end up churning straight from the milk, which means it takes much longer. We now have cream separators which can wring every last speck of cream out of the milk, which makes things much easier.
I must use "alternative" dairy products, because I can't tolerate cow's milk casein. Goat's milk butter comes in two basic types: 1)Revolting-- the buck lives with the does, and the butter tastes just like he smells. 2)Very mild and quite unobjectionable-- the goat lives on a different farm and the does are milked separately for a week after being bred. For some reason, it doesn't seem to come in a middle version.
