Moving Ahead with Goat Development with Election Now Over
May 14, 2013


With the election now over its time to move ahead with goat development. Alaminos Goat Farm delivered 35 heads of bucks for farmers in countryside in Quezon for a government project. It is our stand in Alaminos that bucks is the fastest way to improve genetics of goats in the countryside. Coupled with our advocacy in good nutrition using the tree legume Indigofera we see things happening in the countryside in the coming years.

Dr. Jeter Sespene Visits AGF Dairy Operation
May 11, 2013


Palawan State University  President, Dr. Jeter Sespene visited AGF dairy goat operation. He is looking for projects for research to help develop the huge potential of Agriculture in Palawan. The opening up of trade link between Palawan and Sabah in terms of barter trade opens a lot of business opportunity in Palawan. The State government of Sabah is actively pursuing to develop barter trade with Palawan.

One commodity the State Government of Sabah singled out is live goats for barter trade with Palawan. Seeing this huge potential, Palawan State University is embarking to do goat  research to help spur the development of the goat industry in Palawan.

Dr. Jeter Sespene is looking at the success story of Alaminos Goat Farm dairy goat operation and was asking if we would be open to share the technology developed. We said, we are open to help in projects in the countryside that would help farmers improve their income through good nutrition in raising goats. The Alaminos Salad Garden feeding program would be the technology AGF is willing to share with Palawan State University in goat raising .

Targeting More Milk in 2014 with the Triple Cross Doelings
May 9, 2013


The 2013 Alaminos Dairy Breeding Program is off to a good start with the commercial triple cross doelings on the ground this year. The first batch of triple cross doelings are doing very well with the Alaminos Salad Garden feeding program.

We are excited to see how the triple  cross Alpine doelings will perform in the milking line in 2014. Their dairy type features and the outstanding pedigree of their sire, Redwood Hill King James gives us the confidence that they will perform well in the milking line next year.

The triple cross will anchor our drive to target more goat's milk production in 2014. AGF business model calls for the production of dairy goats that are well adapted to the tropical environment, consistent in milk production of 2 liters ++ per day with a 305 days in lactation in their second lactation.

Hybrid vigor is the key with the triple cross. Adapting to the tropical environment of these temperate raised breeds and crossing them with goats kidded in Alaminos gives them the advantage. Good nutrition is provided by the ASG feeding program. Science is on our side  with hybrid vigor,  we see a more consistent goat's milk flowing in Alaminos all year round in 2014.


Success in this undertaking will open an opportunity to produce commercial triple cross  milkers for players in the dairy goat industry in Tropical Philippines in the future.
 


The bucks we are using for the Alaminos Dairy Line Breed Improvement  Program have matured very well the past year. For the Anglo Nubian bucks we have set them up with our Australian influenced Nubian does in Alaminos.

For our Australian  Saanen influenced does we have the high powered imported American Saanen buck, Caprikorn Zurich Cast Iron to do the job for better  dairy characteristics.

King James an Alpine buck together with a LaMancha buck, AGF Poch are used for the production of  triple cross milkers to play with hybrid vigor. We are excited how their progenies, which are already on the ground will perform in the milking line next year.

This year we are working very hard to improve the dairy characteristics and increase the numbers of our purebred Anglo Nubian and Saanen does to have a bigger base for the commercial production of the Anglo Saanen cross milkers by next year.

Purebred, Anglo Saanen Cross or the Triple Cross, which will the bring more milk for the Alaminos  Dairy Line Breed Improvement Program is the question waiting for an answer.

Everything is slowly coming into place. All we have to do is play the  waiting game and see which buck will be prepotent in throwing  heavy milk production characteristics in their progenies. Once the results are out in terms of milk yields we will focus on the combinations that are consistent heavy  milkers which we are looking for.

We are slowly getting closer by the day, by 2014 we will have a definite answer to all our questions. Watch us as we move forward the Alaminos Dairy Breed Improvement Program to the next level in tropical Philippines.

Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line Breeding Program is Moving Forward
April 30, 2013


Present and future Anglo Nubian milkers for the production of Alaminos Milk Star Goat's Milk are firmly being established in Alaminos. Things are slowly coming into place, with more patience we are slowly getting nearer our goal in producing Anglo Nubian dairy goats that are adapted to the tropical environment of the Philippines.

I remember when my Dad Rene consulted our friends in the academe, they told us  that breed improvement is a slow and long process. It would take four generations of meticulous selection for the desired dairy characteristics in every generation. They said  we need to have the patience to do it successfully. The  rewards are big, improvement seen in every generation as we progress would be more permanent in the breed.

Early breeding the AADL does resulted to a lot of single kidding. We are alright if they give us kid does, which are essential to move the breeding program forward. The quality of kids produced continues to motivate us to move forward with the AADL breeding program.

We know its just a matter of time, we will reach our target of producing an Anglo Nubian dairy line that are well adapted to the tropical environment in the Philippines. Our goal is to produce a line that will be consistent in delivering 2 liters ++ of milk in  305 days in lactation.


The AADL breed improvement program is at the midpoint. The next stage is to produce the third generation AADL kid does. We are laying down the foundation to establish the dairy characteristics we are looking for  with our Anglo Nubian milkers in Alaminos.


The AADL breeding  program will result to a bigger base for selection in the commercial  production of the Alaminos Anglo Saanen Cross. The Anglo Nubians will be doe line and the Saanens for the buck line of the Alaminos Anglo Saanen Cross Milkers. All cross bucks produced will be sold for slaughter for the meat market.

Success in this program will result to a sustainable and profitable dairy operation of Alaminos Goat Farm.

Taking the faster route in dairy breed improvement based on our experience in dairying goats in the tropics, we are crossing the Anglo Nubian does with the Saanen buck. The crosses are among our top and consistent milkers in Alaminos. Last year we move one step forward by adding an outstanding Alpine buck, King James for the production of triple cross milkers.
