Morning After Typhoon Yolanda Skips Alaminos

Dawn of a New Day in Alaminos After Haiyan (Yolanda)

November 9, 2013

 

At the break of dawn as the new day breaks, we continue to count the many blessings we continue to receive from above. The whole morning of yesterday was full anxiety as it was a  waiting game,  what the powerful typhoon Haiyan will bring in early evening. With Godís blessing Haiyan spared our farm in Alaminos.

 

We cannot take our mind off our partners in SAIS RED in Eastern and Northern Samar and Tacloban, they were not as lucky as they got a direct hit from typhoon Haiyan. Last month we delivered 12 heads of Anglo Nubian breeder goats at the Tacloban Airport in Leyte for the SAIS RED project in Eastern and Northern Samar.

 

The project manager for the SAIS RED project, RTD of DA Region 8, Dr. Wilson Cerbito is from Tacloban City in Leyte. Communication is down since yesterday from Tacloban and we have not heard from him since yesterday morning at the start of Haiyan onslaught in Leyte.

 

We offer our prayers for our friends and partners in Central Philippines and  we commit to help  our partners in the SAIS RED project when they start livelihood reconstruction from the devastation of typhoon Haiyan.

 

Favorite First Lactating Trio, JP Maxim Darski AGF 057, Saanen AGF 9020, Turn in the  Milking Line
Favorite First Lactating Trio, JP Maxim Darski AGF 057, Saanen AGF 9020, Turn in the Milking Line

Favorite First Lactating Trio 2013
November 7, 2013


We have identified our favorite trio of  young first lactating does in Alaminos. They are Jacobs Pride Nubian Maxim Darski, Oberhasli AGF 471 and Saanen AGF 7020. The trio were bred young at 8 to 12 months old. Their daily milk yield and number of days in lactation are being recorded. Darski and Ober 471 are averaging 2 liters per day while the Saanen, AGF 9020 is averaging 1.6 liters per day. Milk recording started when the kids were weaned from their dam at 60 days after kidding.

The consensus in the farm is that the favorite trio holds huge potential as their mammary matures with age.  We will record their milk yield in their 2nd lactation. In 2014, we are  looking forward to see improved  milk yield from our favorite trio as they mature.

 

Triple Cross Doelings Selected for a Friend

Triple Cross Doelings Going to a Friend to Meet Commitment Made
November 6, 2013


We are starting to prepare to meet commitment made this year for 2014 delivery of 50 heads of Nubian Saanen and Triple Cross doelings to friends and customers. We have selected for our friend and loyal customer Bobby Baluyot, 5 heads of triple cross doelings.

AGF have invested heavily in bringing in well selected dairy bucks for the dairy breed improvement program in Alaminos. For the production of the  triple cross Alpine Nubian Saanen doeling, we used an imported American Purebred Alpine, buck JC Adventurer, King James.

Progenies of King James in Alaminos are showing hybrid vigor. It is our assessment that with good nutrition and hybrid vigor, science is on our side for success  in dairying goats in tropical Philippines. For the production of next generation progenies, our recommendation is to breed them back to one of the original breed, a Saanen or a Nubian buck would suit for this purpose.

This year we have made reservation for 2014 kids from Redwoodhill Farm in Sonoma Valley for two Saanen bucks and an Alpine buck from their award winning and proven line of high milk producing dairy goats. This  will augment the dairy buck line in 2014 for the commercial production of  the hybrid Nubian Saanen and Alpine Nubian Saanen Cross in Alaminos.

2014 target is to increase milk production by 20%. Experience has shown us that the pelleting machine should always be in tip top condition. Changes in the quality of the pelleted goat's feed could easily result to drop in milk production by 10%.

Thank you to the Escueta Iron Work service crew for their prompt service of the the two pelleting machines in Alaminos. Mabuhay kayo.

Homegrown Nubian Doelings in Alaminos, AADL Breeding Program
November 5, 2013


The homegrown dual type Nubians in Alaminos continues to bring us a lot of joy. Ever since we started, there was a big demand for dual type Anglo Nubian bucks and does in the Philippines. As some  goat breeders started to realize the huge potential of dairying goats in the tropics, they started to look for dairy type Anglo Nubian breeder goats.

 


Seeing the huge potential of Anglo Nubian dairy goats for future sales , we started in 2012, a three year program called the  Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) breeding program. This call for the infusion of American Anglo Nubian goats from known Nubian dairy goat breeders in America.

In 2012, we invested good money and imported from Nubian goats from Bullet Creek Farm and Jacobs Pride Nubians. This year we invested in a second batch of import from Goldthwaite Nubian and Bullet Creek Farm.

We are breeding our dual type homegrown Nubian does in Alaminos with the dairy type Nubian bucks from the United States. We are very pleased in what we are seeing, as we breed the homegrown Nubians in Alaminos heavily towards the dairy type American Nubians.

Reviewing the time line of the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line breeding program shows we are on target on the breeding side but delayed in the milk recording side of the program. To shorten the generation gaps the doelings were bred  early at 7 to 8 months old. Since they were bred early we decided not to milk them in their first lactation instead they were tasked to nurse their kids for at least 60 days. Milk recording will be done on their second lactation when they are more mature.
 

JACOBS PRIDE MAXIM DARSKI, Our Favorite Jacobs Pride Nubian Doe in Alaminos
JACOBS PRIDE MAXIM DARSKI, Our Favorite Jacobs Pride Nubian Doe in Alaminos

AGF 57, Favorite Nubian Doe  Jacobs Pride Maxim Darski
October 30, 2013


It brings us a lot of happiness and fulfillment   to see our favorite Jacobs Pride Nubian doe, Maxim Darski every morning going to the dairy with full udders. She gave us 2.1 liters of milk today, considering she was bred young and this is her first lactation, we expect a much better performance on her 2nd lactation next year.

Maxim Darski  has J&R Spirit's Dakota Maxim as her sire. J&R Dakota Maxim's dam is Kovergirl, the 2009 ADGA National 1st place 1st udder. She ended up as the 2009 Reserve National Champion and National Best Udder and was also 1st place Milking Yearling in 2007.

Her Dam is GCH Darski Shwman, a beautiful doe with strong milk production.
 

AGF 77  Buckling Kid of JP Maxim Darski
AGF 77 Buckling Kid of JP Maxim Darski

AGF 77 is a well bred single buckling kid of Jacobs Pride Maxim Darski with Bullet Creek Sue Yanni as his sire. We were able to sell him for Php 30,000 pesos when he was 90 days old.

You can just imagine when Maxim Darski goes into her second lactation when she matures and delivers her full potential in daily milk yield. Giving us a kid doe will be big for our Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line breeding program.

Maxin Darski  kidded during the off season. We are experiencing a tight supply of goat's milk now as the milking season has ended. Production now comes from the does that kidded during the off season. With the tight supply of goat's milk, we decided to milk Maxim Darski instead of breeding her after weaning.

Slow Down of Alaminos Milk Star Goat's Milk Deliveries as Milking Season Ends
October 30, 2013


The past several weeks goat's milk lovers are experiencing tight supply of Alaminos Milk Star goat's milk in our outlets. We are seeing the tail end of this year's milking season. We are now dependent with the does that kidded during the off season.


This year we have increased our goat's milk production by 10% year on year.  It looks like that  is not enough to meet the increase demand because of the higher level of awareness created, that drinking goat's milk is healthy.
