The proper expression is "cow's milk".

Would it not be cows' milk?

"The apostrophe goes before the s because it is the milk of a cow (i.e., of an animal known as a cow). In other words, it is not about how many cows produced the milk. It is about what kind of animal produced the milk. It is the same with goat's cheese."

It still needs to be cows irrespective of where the apostrophe goes.

As below it should be cow's milk in both US and UK English. Would be great if a MOD could change this...

Does "A avea" sound like "A bea"? I heard the example fast and made a mistake thinking it was said "A avea lapte de vacă" which led me to think if B sounds differently from V in Romanian or have absolutely the same pronunciation.
