Alaminos Milk Star  Fresh Goat's Milk

Summer of 2014,  We Will Turn the ASG Green  by Reviving the Old Sprinkler System
April 11, 2014


Time to irrigate the Alaminos Salad Garden (ASG), we have planted Napier Pak Chong which requires a lot of moisture in the soil. The long dry spell is putting pressure on supply of fresh forage from the ASG. Our main tree legume Indigofera needs moisture in the soil for faster growth rate.
We will be using the sprinkler system and also do manual watering of the ASG this month until the rains comes in May.

The Alaminos Salad Garden on the side of the milking room is now well covered to meet the long dry spell we are facing this summer. We have brought back the old sprinkler system back to working condition. The ASG on this side will be green and we expect the Napier Pak Chong to come strong with good moisture provided by the sprinklers on this side. The only draw back is the increase in Meralco electric power bill for April and May.

Dairy Goats Loves Indigofera
April 7, 2014


Dairy goats coming from the milking room after morning milking could not resist the Indigofera on their way back to their pen and have to take a bite. Dairy goats loves Indigofera and will always gives us more milk when there are plenty of Indigofera in Alaminos. That is why we are trying  hard to irrigate the Indigofera trees in the Alaminos Salad Garden.

Today we planted cuttings of 3 nodes Napier Pak Chong that were soaked in water in a plastic drum over night. We look forward in July to get more cuttings after 90 days, which is just right in the middle of the wet season in Alaminos. In July we will plant more areas with Napier Pak Chong.

Napier Pak Chong with Indigofera in the Alaminos Salad Garden

April 7, 2014

 

The long dry spell this year has put a lot of pressure on supply of fresh forages being harvested from the Alaminos Salad Garden (ASG). This led us to reevaluate the composition of forages in the ASG. What forage grass can we add to increase volume of forages in the ASG during summer with irrigation and fertilization?  We found an ideal high yielding napier grass in Pampanga called Napier Pak Chong.

From Lampang Animal Nutriton Research and Development Center, we got this data about Napier Pak Chong:

         Protein content :11 to 18% DM

         Yield: Fresh 70 tons/rai or 437.5 tons/hectare/year   

         Dry weight 10.5 tons/rai or 65.6 tons / hectare/year

                   * 1 rai = 1,600 square meters

Atty. Lito Tayag imported the cuttings from Thailand last September, 2013. He shared data results of protein levels.

Regional Animal Feed Laboratory at San Fernando 14.9 % Protein for Napier Pak Chong 45 Days


The impressive data being collected continues to catch our strong interest in adding Napier Pak Chong to the Indigofera dominated Alaminos Salad Garden.

Choosing Napier Pak Chong as the new forage addition to the Alaminos Salad Garden was easy. With the onset of the long dry spell, irrigating the newly planted  Pak Chong this summer will be a challenge, Doing manual watering and using the sprinklers will be farm practice this April and May, as we await the start of the wet season in May. In studies made by Lampang Animal Nutriton Research and Development Center about Napier Pak Chong, they said  to attain the target yields irrigation is critical. To reach the target protein levels application of Urea was strongly recommended at 6 bags per hectare per year and yearly application of 2 bags of complete ( 14-14-14 ) once a year.
