AADL, Developing a Local Dairy Nubian Line Adapted in Tropical Philippines
March 27, 2014


The Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) breeding program is now going on its third year. Developing a local dairy type Anglo Nubian family in commercial numbers at a reasonable cost is the goal of the AADL breeding program.

Local dairy type Nubians, calls for the Anglo Nubians to produce at least 2 liters of milk in a 305 days in lactation period is the ultimate goal of the AADL breeding program. When the AADL breeding program started in 2012, the local existing stock in Alaminos were dual type Nubians. They were augmented with imported Anglo Nubian goats from the United States. The focus was to add good goat dairy type Nubian genetics using the buck as the focus of the imports from the USA.


The past few days we are seeing the results of good genetic infusion with the huge investment made with the American Anglo Nubians we imported from the United States the past years.

We are now seeing the transformation of the local Nubians in Alaminos from a dual type Nubian towards a dairy type Nubian. Improvement in size, lenght and height are very notable. The udder conformation have improved tremendously. With strict selection we expect to hit our target of 2 liters average by the end of the year. The 305 days in lactation is another question that needs more time and bigger number of samples tested to come up with a credible conclusion. End of 2015 would be a safe bet to conclude the observation on the 305 days in lactation data of locally produced Nubians in Alaminos.

AGF BEX 156 Will Be Monitored for Milk Performance
March 26, 2014


AGF BEX 156 had a twin kid does with Goldthwaite Aliminos as their sire. Kidding weight is 2.7 kilos for the brown one and 2.6 kilos for the black one. We will monitor AGF 156 performance in the milking line for milk records. The twin kid does represents two generation of Australian Nubian blood,  then two generation of American Nubian bucks used to breed them. They would be good materials for the AADL breed improvement program if AGF 156 comes out with a strong milk performance in the milking line.

The newly weaned young Saanen doelings are looking very good and loves the fresh forages from the Alaminos Salad Garden. Saanens being temperate breed puts selection based on adaptability to the tropical environment an important factor together with milk records of their dam.

Our experience in Alaminos shows that healthy kids growing up to maturity when its time to milk them shows a big advantage in the milking line. High milkers will have very good appetite and loves to drink a lot of fresh clean water.

Doing Milk Recording at AGF
March 26, 2014


Milking the young does and recording their milk yield is part of our commitment in helping develop goat dairying in Tropical Philippines. Milk records of the different dairy goat  breeds and two, three way breed combinations that are being milked in Alaminos Goat Farm will be compared. In a three years milk recording program we are doing at AGF starting 2012,  we will come up with a recommendation on the ideal breed or two, three way breed combinations based on milk records we have collected in Alaminos.

So far the Anglo (doe line) Saanen (buck line) cross leads the way. They have proven performance in milk records in Alaminos. We continue to collect data on performance of the three way cross Anglo Saanen Alpine, Anglo Saanen LaMancha cross and later in the year the Oberhasli Alpine cross. Next year we will test the Alpine Oberhasli Saanen cross.

Breeding Young Doelings at 7 to 12 Months
March 25, 2014


Doing Breed Improvement for dairy goats in the tropics puts a lot of pressure on the breeder. The time involve is very long. To shorten the generation gaps between generation Alaminos Goat Farm have been breeding the doelings at a young age of 7 to 12  months. This results to the young doe kidding at 12 to 15 month old. Single kids are  common when they are bred young.

This is the trade off we are willing to take to shorten the generation gaps between generation. Single kids provided we get a kid doe for our breed improvement program.


Breeding the doelings young requires a good feeding program of concentrate and forages form the Alaminos Salad Garden.

Rains Breaks Dry Spell in Alaminos
March 24, 2014


We have been praying for the rain to come the past few months and today our prayers were answered. The good rains today breaks the long dry spell we have been experiencing in Alaminos.

The moisture we got from today's rain will be big for the forage legumes and grass in the Alaminos Salad Garden. They need the moisture badly to recover from the stress of the long dry spell this year. Before the rains came, we have already started using our sprinklers. Production of Indigofera is down due to lack of moisture in the soil. We have substituted 10% Ipilipil (Leucania) for Indigofera in the pelleted goat's feed ration.

The rains today is one of the many blessings we continue to receive from heaven. For us in Alaminos, the blessings that comes our way are an affirmation to keep us moving forward in what we are doing.
