Kids with Their Dam
February 8, 2014


Leaving the kid does with their dam is a subject friends would always asked us, " Will it not affect milk production of goat's milk when you let your kids nurse from their dam?'.
Leaving the kids with their dam allows them to learn from their dam. The dam is the best teacher in teaching the young kids to eat early the forages from the Alaminos Salad Garden.

In a way yes milk production suffers when you leave kids with their dam to nurse for sixty days. On the other it addresses the bigger picture to produce  trouble free next generation dairy milkers.

Our experience at AGF indicates that dam raise kids are healthier than bottle fed kids. This season we need to produce a lot of dairy milkers for AGF dairy operation and for the commitments made to our customers and friends.

Triple Alpine Anglo Saanen Cross Has a Twins
February 5, 2014


AGF 914 is nibbling her favorite Indigofera after kidding her twins, a kid doe and buckling kid out of Caprikorn Zurich Cast Iron as Sire. Part of the husbandry practice at AGF, to help the doe recover from stress of kidding, is to provide them with liberal amount of Indigofera leaves from the Alaminos Salad Garden. She is also provided clean fresh water an hour or two after kidding.


To keep the kids warm, we provide them fresh dried bedding.

Favorite Bullet Creek Pregnant Nubian Doelings
February 5, 2014


We are eagerly awaiting the kids in March of two pregnant Bullet Creek doelings, Zantasia and LaurelAnne.  The two pregnant Bullet Creek doelings are heavy with the milky 6M Galaxy line. We would loveed to see how their progenies will turn out with the Goldthwaite lined bucks of Becky Goldthwaite used in breeding them.

Bullet Creek PJ'S LaurelAnne was bred to JoeBlack last October 23, 2013 and Bullet Creek PJ'S Zantasia to Goldthwaite Aliminos last October 21, 2013.


Exciting times are coming for the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line breeding program with the help of two outstanding American Nubian lady breeders, Tanya Farris and Beverly Goldthwaite.

Thank You to Tanya Farris and Beverly Goldthwaite for helping us select the finely bred Nubian dairy goats from their herd and for shipping them to San Francisco International Airport last May, 2013. for their trip to the Philippines.

Blood Testing For CAE and Brucellosis
February 4, 2014


Dr. Gerald Dimayuga and Rowena Rocafort of the Regional Animal Disease Diaognostic Laboratory (RADDL) took blood samples to test goats for CAE and Brucellosis. CAE and Brucellosis negative goats are a requirement before shipping permit is issued by the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI).

We are preparing  goats for shipment to the Samar Islands in the Visayas once they pass the test as CAE and Brucellosis negative.

AGF 911 Alpine Anglo Saanen Cross Doe and Her Single Kid Doe
February 3, 2014


AGF 911 kidded a single kid doe with Caprikorn Cast Iron as sire. We are excited how AGF 911 will perform in the milking line. AGF 911 is the first triple cross Alpine Anglo Saanen Cross doe to kid in Alaminos. She will be the first progeny of King James (Adventurer), an  imported Alpine buck from Redwood Hill Farm that we will tested for milk yield this year.

AGF 911 dam is AGF 12, an Anglo Saanen cross whose dam is our Top Milking Anglo Saanen Cross AGF 005. We are very optimistic that AGF 911 will perform well in the milking line and improve  as she matures in her second lactatation, like het great grand dam AGF 005, our top milking milker in Alaminos Goat Farm. AGF 005 set a record at AGF last January 31, 2014, 6.1 kilos of milk. That is the highest one day goat milk yield recorded in Alaminos since 2008.

 


Science And Business Can Mix Well Together In Dairying Goats In The Tropics
February 2, 2014


Partnering with PCARRD and the Bureau of Animal Industry in research work has opened our eyes in the big opportunities in using science, to make the business of dairying goats in tropical Philippines more profitable and sustainable.

 

Doing milk recording work for PCARRD in Alaminos Goat Farm was our first encounter with the huge potential of the Anglo Saanen Cross in milking goats in Tropical Philippines. We get to associate with Dr. Synan Baguio and Ed Magboo and learn the importance of selection, by getting the Top 5 for every generation. They have warned us that breed improvement is  a slow and long process. It would take at least three generation to see desired results in their progenies. The reward is, genetic improvement seen with in the breed is more permanent among the purebreds.
