Bullet Creek Nubians Doing Good with Indigofera in Alaminos
Bullet Creek Nubians Doing Good with Indigofera in Alaminos

Indigofera the Way to Go for the Imported BC Nubians & Oberhaslis
August 24, 2013


Indigofera is one of the best thing that have ever happened to us in dairying goats in the tropics, it is a blessing from heaven.  Indigofera has brought good nutrition to our dairy operation at a lower feed cost.

Who can beat Indigofera's 27% protein and 3,921 calories per kilogram
during the dry season  in the tropics? Once established, it is drought resistant and with a potential yield of 3.2 kilos per tree on its first year. Indigofera is one of the easiest tree legume to plant and cost effective legumes in the tropics.

Realizing what we have achieved with Indigofera in good nutrition gave us the confidence to invest in good genetics. We imported American Nubian goats from Jacob's Pride Nubians, Bullet Creek Ranch, Goldthwaite Nubians. From Ober-Boerd, the Oberhasli Bucks Lead The Way and Trade Route. Saanen bucks from Nobel Spring Dairy, Justin and the high powered Saanen buck from  Caprikorn, Zurich Cast Iron.

If pedigree will be the sole basis for success in good genetics, I would say we are done with the quality of dairy bucks we have imported from the United States. In reality adaptability to the tropical environment and good nutrition are important factors to consider for success in breeding dairy goats in the tropics.

Good Nutrition combined with good genetics will spell success in dairying goats in the tropics. The good genetic part will take a little longer to achieved as we struggle to select the best dairy goats that will adapt to the harsh humid, hot and sometimes wet weather in tropical Philippines.

Will it be a purebred or the triple cross or the Anglo Saanen cross? We already have an answer in our mind but we need more time to back up our statement  with solid numbers. Watch us as we continue to move forward in reaching for our goal in good genetics in dairying goats in the tropics.

Goldthwaite Nubian Bucks in Alaminos Goat Farm
August 20, 2013


Becky Goldthwaite wrote......When asked by Rene to find him the best buck from our Goldthwaite herd for their Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line breeding program, the progeny of SGCH Goldthwaite Madelaine to CH (pend) *B Goldthwaite Jewellburt came right to mind.  I understood that the top priority was for production, but I also saw the need for correct type and conformation were high on his list.  Luckily Madelaine cooperated and presented me with a beautiful set of triplets, 2 bucks and a doe.  I selected Goldthwaite Aliminos for Rene.

 

Goldthwaite Madelaine, Dam of Goldthwaite Aliminos
Goldthwaite Madelaine, Dam of Goldthwaite Aliminos

The dam, SGCH Goldthwaite Madelaine, was the litter mate to our last ADGA Spotlight Sale doe from one of our all time Champion daughters of SGCH "OMAR", SGCH Goldthwaite Clematis, LA 91, many time BIS and BUIS winner, with a lifetime production of over 14000 lbs.  Madelaine's high test last year as a 5 yr old was 13.5 lbs.

I
n a tight line breeding to Jewellburt - who just finished his Championship at this years Wyoming State Fair Nubian Speciality - we have doubled up over and over on the "OMAR" influence, thru his dam SGCH Jewellia - a Top Ten producing "OMAR" daughter and full sister to Merlin - Madelaine's sire. 

Correct type and  conformation, is also solid in his pedigree, with all the major players being SGCH and Linear Appraised Excellent (LA90 & LA 91).  Aliminos exemplifies this in his length of body, strength of topline, and correct feet and legs both fore and rear.

However, just one generation is like a drop in the genetic bucket of the Island bred goats, so to insure that his influence continues I sent along a little "buddy" for him, which  Rene gave the name of Goldthwaite Gintong Biyaya, honoring him as a "golden gift".  Gintong Biyaya was a late born son of a yearling daughter of Aliminos' sire, Jewellburt.  He is sired by another son of SGCH Jewellia - Goldthwaite Orpheus.  Orpheus is a beautiful buck who was sired by our Senior Herd sire - Goldthwaite Bootonniere. 

There is already some Bootonnier influence on the Island, and the herd in  Alaminos were fortunate in obtaining AGF Joe Black  another buck linebred on Bootonniere from his daughter CH Goldthwaite Angel Gabriel.

Goldthwaite Orpheus, Sire of Goldthwaite Gintong Biyaya


Every one of my ORPHEUS kids has been extremely correct and beautiful, and Gintong Biyaya is no exception.  he is an extremely long buckling from the Jewellburt daughter Goldthwaite Mindanao - who's dam is a Bootonniere daughter "Hoopla",also appraised Excellent LA90, from one of our all time special does SGCH Goldthwaite HOORAH (a Merlin daughter).  In conclusion, Gintong Biyaya is a perfect breeding to compliment Aliminos and to keep the Goldthwaite influence strong in the Alaminos Nubian  herd.

To Becky Goldthwaite, Thank you for taking time in doing the write ups, for your generosity for giving us the golden gift, Gintong Biyaya for free and for your insights in line breeding. All these will redound to better Nubians in Tropical Philippines. We will forever be indebted for all the help and kindness you have showered us. Thank You as they say in the vernacular Maraming Salamat Po Madame Becky from the bottom of our heart....Alaminos Milk Star Family.

 


AGF 148 Nubian Doeling

 


AGF 206 Nubian Doeling


Anglo Nubian Doelings Selected for DA RFU VIII Tacloban
August 26, 2013

We are recommending  two Anglo Nubian doelings for the DA RFU VIII breeding station. AGF 148 and AGF 206 will be going to Tacloban once it gets the approval upon inspection of  their technical committee.

AGF 148 was bred to Bullet Creek Faith's  Triumph last August 6, 2013. AGF 148 has as her dam AGF 42 with Braveheart Hercules as sire. AGF 42 dam is our 2010 AgriLink Champion Nubian Doe AGF 1454  with the imported Nubian buck from Australia, AGF Edgar as her sire.

AGF 148 returned to heat today and was re-bred  to Bullet Creek PJ'S Landon.

The local Nubians were nurtured by Alaminos Goat Farm through the years carries their proven adaptability to the tropical environment. Bullet Creek's line would improve the udders of their progenies for better milk production. We see big opportunities in improving milk yield with this combination of local and imported Nubians from Bullet Creek Ranch.

 

AGF 206 Bred to Bullet Creek Faith Triumph
AGF 206 Bred to Bullet Creek Faith Triumph

To give the breeding program of DA RFU VIII a head start, we have decided to  breed AGF 206 last August 20, 2013 with our imported Bullet Creek Faith Triumph.

AGF 206 has ML 44 as her dam and Braveheart Sweet Alex as her sire.
