AGF Yolanda Livelihood Reconstruction (AGF YLR) Plan for  SAIS RED 8 in 2014

November 21, 2013



The thought of our partners in SAIS RED in Region 8 keeps on coming back to us the past several days. We can feel their call for help in our heart. The agonies of losing their love ones, their homes and source of livelihood as an aftermath of typhoon Yolanda are all there to see. Helping the victims of Typhoon Yolanda rise from the ruins of devastation will define us as a true Christian.

 

In Alaminos Goat Farm (AGF) we take pride in what we do, we make sure that projects we support are sustainable. Samar Island Small Ruminant Rural Enterprise Development Project, SAIS RED 8 in Eastern and Northern Samar is one of them. Even before Typhoon Yolanda we were  already a partner of DA Region 8 in the  SAIS RED project in Eastern and Northern Samar.

 

In October, after delivering the Anglo Nubian breeder goats at the Tacloban Airport, we had initial talks with our partners in SAIS RED of their intention to acquire 20 heads of the Anglo Saanen and Triple Cross doelings type milkers we are using for our dairy operation at AGF. The initial talk was overtaken when typhoon Yolanda hit the Samar Island. This gave us an idea  how we can  help them.  We will initiate the AGF Yolanda Livelihood Reconstruction Project with SAIS RED 8 as conduit.

 

AGF Yolanda Livelihood Reconstruction (AGF YLR) Project with SAIS RED 8

 

As the kidding season is fast approaching, AGF will identify 10 heads of does and allocate one head of the kid produced from each does selected for the AGF YLR Project in Eastern and Northern Samar.  AGF will raise them in Alaminos until they are 10 months old and breed them. AGF will be ready to ship ten heads of  bred doelings for SAIS RED project in Eastern and Northern Samar on or before  November, 2014.

 

The idea is to compliment SAIS RED 8 project in Eastern and Northern Samar with its established network on the ground. The aftermath of typhoon Yolanda calls for livelihood reconstruction after all the work is done in normalizing supply of food, water, electricity and rebuilding homes  for those affected by typhoon Yolanda.

 

Supporting the SAIS RED 8 program in Eastern and Northern Samar is one of AGF top priority  for 2014.  AGF will sustain  its support  to help show that SAIS RED is a doable project for livelihood reconstruction in the countryside and help it mature to become self-sustaining.

 

AGF will focus on where it  can make a difference, livelihood reconstruction through goat raising as an enterprise for farmers in  Eastern and Northern Samar as an active partner of SAIS RED 8.

American Nubian Bucks for the 2014 Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) Program
November 15, 2013


Alaminos Goat Farm has invested good money to bring Anglo Nubian bucks from the United States last year and this year. We have totally replaced  the Australian Nubian bucks in our Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line breeding program with the American  Nubian bucks from Goldthwaite Nubians, Bullet Creek Ranch and Jacob's Pride Nubians.

This year we have  out cross the Australian influenced Anglo Nubian  does in Alaminos with the American Nubian bucks. We hope to see big improvement in  milk yields with the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line in 2014.

Putting Meaning to the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line Breeding Program

November 14, 2013

 

We at Alaminos Goat Farm are firm believer in destiny. Things happen for a reason, when things are meant to be everything will fall in place one by one at the right place and right  time.

 

Last week, Alaminos Goat Farm received one of its biggest  blessing from heaven, the farm was spared of the devastating effect of typhoon Haiyan as it took the route towards South China Sea through the island of Mindoro and  Palawan. For us it is a sign of approval from above for us  to continue what we are doing and with our advocacy in Alaminos.

 

In promoting goat dairying, we get invitation from all over the islands. Our advocacy calls for us to share our experiences to show that goat dairying is a viable, sustainable and profitable enterprise for farmers in the countryside. We get to touch base with all kinds of people in the Philippines from the very rich and powerful to the poor farmers in the countryside.

 

Trying to touch base with the farmers in the countryside brought us to the island of Samar. Our goal is  to share with them that good goat nutrition is very doable at minimal cost with Indigofera, our favorite the tree legume in Alaminos. We have partnered with DA Region 8 for their SAIS RED project in Eastern and Northern Samar. Our friend Dr. Wilson Cerbito, DA RTD for Region 8 Tacloban, is the project manager of SAIS RED.

 

Last October we shipped to Tacloban 12 heads of Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line goats for the SAIS RED project. The bucks were delivered to beneficiaries in; Calbayog Cityland,  Sta. Rita. For Eastern Samar to our partners in the towns of Balagkayan and Salcedo and in Northern Samar in the towns of San Isidro, Catamaran, San Roque and Palabag. We supplied 2 pregnant Anglo Nubian doelings and two Anglo Nubian bucks for the DA-8 Regional Goat Farm in Matibog, Southern Leyte.

 

We find our involvement with the SAIS RED in Samar and the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) breeding program providential. The SAIS RED project had a very good start with strong interest from the farmers, NGOs, local government units in Samar. Then tragedy struck our partners last week, typhoon Haiyan resulted to loss of lives, properties and livelihood.

The AADL breeding program continues to move forward with the kidding season starting in December all the way to March. Escaping the terrible effect of typhoon Haiyan has given us the momentum to work harder. Destiny is pointing  us towards the successful conclusion of the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line program that is suited to the tropical condition in the Philippines.


We commit to prioritize the SAIS RED project in Samar should they decide to pursue the second phase of the program. When its time for livelihood reconstruction for our partners in SAIS RED, we will open our heart to support the rebuilding program that they will decide to undertake.

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 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.
