There are types of milks based on how it is produced and thus they may exist in different kinds of solutions. The milk that is drawn directly from the cow is not yet processed so you can see the fats floating and other substances. In this case the milk is a heterogeneous mixture. If you process the milk, the fat is whipped that it forms into tiny particles thus making the milk homogenous. The milk that is placed in the carton for direct consumption is called "processed milk" or "homogenized milk."

Yes, milk is a homogenous mixture. A homogenous mixture is a solution with a uniform compostion that you cannot tell apart. Milk is made up of different substances, although, a glance at milk, you cannot see the different substances. A liquid where you can see the difference is water and oil, which is a hetergenous mixture.
