Goghṛta (गोघृत) or Gavyaghṛta refers to “ghee of cows”, as mentioned in verse 5.42 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] Milk and ghee coming from cows [viz., gavye kṣīraghṛte] (are) the best; disapproved of, however, (are those) originating from sheep. Such (is) the section on milk. [...]”.

Note: gavye kṣīraghṛte—“milk and ghee coming from cows” has been simplified to ba mar o-ma (“ghee and, milk of cows”), with kṣīra and ghṛta inverted on metrical grounds.
