In brief: Not really

Some people feel that they tolerate goats milk better than cows milk.
However, if you are lactose intolerant, you will be intolerant to both cow and goat milk. If you are sensitive to the protein in cows milk, causing bloating, constipation, and cramping, you will likely have the same problem with goats milk. Goats milk does not provide better nutrition for humans than cows milk.
