question about milk

I am wondering how to pull as much fat as possible out of the milk while still keeping it in it's raw form.  I have been looking for 2 days now  on how to produce skim milk from raw milk and have not found an exact answer.  The cream that rises to the top...is that ALL of the fat in the milk or just some of it?  I specifically need to remove the saturated fat.

"I tried three of the most popular herbal dewormers and none of them worked when a goat had a a heavy case of worms. I personally use wormwood that I grow on my farm when one of my goats has a problem. I originally was buying wormwood, but it worked…"

"Wow! Sounds like you've been through a lot with her, and she is doing much better than when you got her. I'm glad she didn't wind up in the hands of someone completely new or uncaring. It's not a good idea to use a dewormer…"

"Agreed on all you said about sale barns....I was attempting to avoid that.  Fortunately, I am not new to livestock and have done mostly rescue and recovery types with horses and a few cows.  Sick or injured animals are nothing new to me.…"

"It makes me so sad to hear about people trading livestock as if they were lifeless commodities. I hate to see it but you could have bought some real problems. People generally take goats to the sale barn because they want to get rid of problems.…"

"Thank you so much!  This article is very good and useful.  I love stats so this is perfect.  I have fish tail in my herd, nearly all of them.  My Togg mom, when I bought her had a faded coat.  It changed over the…"

"Last year I surveyed goat owners about their copper practices, and of 570 respondents, only once said they supplement monthly, and two said every month or two. Everyone else did it less frequently, so that means than less than 1% of herds need to be…"

"Hi, Rachelle, and welcome to the group!  Glad to hear that the goat milk and colostrum help your health. Your profile pic is pretty dark, so it's hard to see your buck, but he looks pretty pygmy-like.  If your goats' coats are…"
