SHéepes milke is more hot and drye then Cowe milke, with lesse Butter, and more Chéese, and nourisheth there∣fore the lesse. And is not so according to the body as Cow milk, & that is known by heauie odour and smel. For as Gal. sayth, Shéepes milke hath more heauye smell then Cowe milke, and is therefore fleamatie, and nourisheth more then Goats milke, and lesse then Cow milke doth, and is also temperate then is Goats milke.
