Alaminos Milk Star  Fresh Goat's Milk

Young AADL Does

Crossing the local Nubians with the American Nubian bucks from the USA have rewarded us with reasonably priced milking goats in Alaminos. As these young batch of AADL does matures next year in their second lactation, we expect them to produce more than 2 liters of milk per day for 305 days.

The progress of the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) breeding program continues to make us very happy breeders at Alaminos Goat Farm. With time on our side we are slowly making big progress in crossing the local Nubian does with the American Nubian bucks we imported from the United States.

Adaptability to the tropical environment was added to the original selection criteria of 2 liters per day with a 305 days in lactation.

When we were starting the AADL breeding program, we were advised by our friends from PCAARRD, Dr. Synan Baguio and Ed Magbuo that we need to have the patience if we want to see this through. They said genetic improvement is a slow process that would require  long period of time. For purebred herds, genetic improvement seen no matter how small through a long period of time for every generation would be big at the end.

This is where selection comes in, picking up the Top 10% of the goats produced for every generation  would result to permanent improvement with in the herd.

Recording of individual performance are being done meticulously. Individual daily milk records are done everyday. Kidding weight of progenies are recorded and weight gain of young kids are closely monitored for the first 60 days.
Records are a valuable tool in making decision in selection.

These pair of kid does are siblings of AGF 1454, Champion Anglo Nubian Doe at the 2010 AgriLink Show, World Trade Center. They share a common dam, AGF 481. AGF 481 has blended well with Joe Black to produce these pair of beautiful kid does. Proving their worth in the milking line is the next stage of the selection process.

The young AADL kid does being produced at Alaminos Goat Farm continues to make us very proud breeders of Anglo Nubians in the tropics.

Weanlings Summer of 2014
May 11, 2014

The weanlings of Summer of 2014 are product of  long years of hard work in the dairy breed improvement program we are doing in Alaminos Goat Farm.
When the program was formally started in 2012, the goal was to produce a locally bred dairy goats that are adaptable to the tropical environment. Even before 2012, we were already identifying high performing dairy milkers in Alaminos. A production target was set  for each dairy milker to produce a minimum of  2 liters per day with a 305 days lactation period.

Producing locally dairy milkers at a reasonable cost compared with the very expensive imported dairy goats from the United States makes this a very good business model. The cost of airfreight alone from the USA to the Philippines makes the cost of the imported dairy goats very prohibitive. Add to this upon arrival, the risk increases as the imported dairy goats try to adapt to the new tropical environment in the Philippines for the first time.

Adaptability to the tropical environment is part of the criteria in selection together with milk records.

Experience have taught us well that  high milk production needs good goat nutrition and high feed intake to sustain lactation for 305 days. To do this in Alaminos, we start the young weanlings early with the Alaminos Salad Garden (ASG) feeding program. Indigofera is the cornerstone of the ASG feeding program.

The weanlings of Summer of 2014 are making us proud breeders at Alaminos Goat Farm. With good goat nutrition provided by the Alaminos Salad Garden feeding program, we are sure that success is just around the corner.

Adding More Outlets for Alaminos Milk Star Goat's Cheese

The increase in production of goat's milk in April led us to focus on producing more value added products from goat's milk. Semi hard goat's cheese is one one of our Alaminos Milk Star  goat's milk lovers favorite.

Slowly we are adding more outlets for AMS goat's cheese. This week we have added Makati Supermarket Alabang and SM Pasig Tiendesitas.

 


Top Milkers Summer of 2014 at Alaminos Goat Farm
May 2, 2014


Milk records continues to guide us in what direction to take for our dairy breed improvement program in Alaminos. This Summer of 2014 confirms what the fundamentals of science in genetics is showing us through milk records. Crossing the local Anglo Nubians does with the imported Saanen bucks gives us the hybrid Anglo Saanen cross milkers. They continue to outperform the purebred in the milking line. Hybrid vigor or heterosis gives them a distinct advantage in adaptability to the tropical environment.

Breeding the local Nubian does produced in Alaminos with a purebred Saanen buck gives us a high milking hybrid cross. They are cheaper to produce compared with the cost of the imported dairy goats from the USA and Australia. The Anglo Saanen crosses have been outperforming the imported goats in the milking line for the past  5 years in Alaminos.

The Oberhasli are also showing their huge potential in the tropics. The American Oberhasli have adapted very well in Alaminos. The milk they produce are sweeter and creamier which the Alaminos Milk Star goat's milk lovers liked very much.

We continue to do strict selection to bring farm average to target the above 2 liters milk per day. From the progenies of the outstanding milkers we are starting to lay down the foundation of future milkers in Alaminos.

The future looks very bright for the dairy breed improvement program in Alaminos. The young AGF 148 represent the best Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) produced in Alaminos. Ober 172 is another outstanding young Oberhasli  doe produced in Alaminos. As these young does matures next year, in their second lactation we expect to see explosive numbers in milk yield per day.

AADL Kid Does Summer of 2014
May 2, 2014


We continue to be rewarded with the quality and healthy AADL kids raised and produced this Summer of 2014. This is a motivation for us at AGF to continue to develop the Alaminos Salad Garden for good goat nutrition. First in the agenda is irrigation and the addition of the hybrid napier from Thailand, Pak Chong.

The Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) will be the doe line in the commercial  production of the ideal Anglo Saanen Cross milkers.The Anglo Saanen cross is our choice based on our experience as the most ideal to milk under the tropical setting of the Philippines.

Good genetics and good goat nutrition comes together for success in dairying goats in Tropical Philippines.
