2014 AADL Breeding Program
August 22, 2014


Slowly the shift from a dual type Nubian to a dairy type Nubian is taking place in Alaminos. The Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) is near the end of a three year program of breeding  the Australian lined Nubians in Alaminos  with American dairy type Nubian bucks we imported from USA.

If pictures would be the sole measure of success for the AADL breeding program I would say we are done. But in reality, breeding dairy goats calls for milk records in the milking line. The big demand for the AADL doelings has set us back in retaining the AADL for milk recording.

The business side of breeding the AADL always makes it very attractive to sell when an offer to buy is made and say " OK, next year na lang uli", we would retain the doelings and not sell so we can test them in the milking line for daily milk yield records.

Future Milkers in Alaminos, CAST IRON Progenies
August 22, 2014

The progenies of Caprikorn Zurich Cast Iron are closely being monitored in Alaminos Goat Farm. The twin kid does of AGF 301 out of CAST IRON are being groomed as future milkers in Alaminos. One of the kid doe is already showing sign of milkiness, she has milk in her udders.

In the future when the twin kid does are ready to be bred we will use this year's import from Redwood Hill Farm, CARDAMON. We have named the Saanen import from Redwwood Hill, PIPPEN.

Young imports from Redwood Hill Dairy trying out the pelleted goat's feed in Tropical Alaminos. They are now eating 400 grams a day each. We are slowly building up feed concentrate intake to 600 grams in the next couple of days. They are given fresh forages to appetite.
 

CARDAMON Buckling Kid with RUHIGESTELLE ECLIPSE as Sire
CARDAMON Buckling Kid with RUHIGESTELLE ECLIPSE as Sire

Scott Bice has highly recommended this young buckling of Cardamon. Cardamon has a lifetime record of 9,820 lbs of milk in 732 days in lactation. In kilos that is an average daily of 6 kilos per day.

We have named the young Saanen buckling Pippen. Pippen sire is des-Ruhigestelle Eclipse a proven buck producing daughters that have a will to milk in Redwood Hill.

In 2015, Pippen will be used in breeding the Cast Iron and Justin progenies for the Saanen Breed Improvement Program.


 


 



Cardamon is a large, tall and long doe. She has a beautiful wide rump with good strength of pastern and correct set of rear leg. Her mammary is beautiful balance from the side and overall balance. She has an ideal teat placement and size.

The future for the Alaminos Saanen breed improvement program stands on solid ground with the addition of Pippen to breed the Cast Iron and Justin progemies in the 2015 Saanen breeding season.

We are excited with the good news we got from Caprikorn Farm and we did an inventory of CAST IRON progenies this morning. In October , 2014 we will see them kidding with Noble Springs Justin as their sire.

In 2015, we will see the impact of Cast Iron in our Saanen breed improvement program and the Anglo Saanen Cross program. Cast Iron was used heavily last year and this year. We will record performance of his progenies in the milking line.

Young Kid Doe of AGF 301 with Milk


This young kid doe of AGF 301 is the third progeny out of Cast Iron breeding to have milk in her udders at a very young age ( 30 days). CI 199 (CAST IRON progeny) foster dam of this kid doe also has milk ( 9 months old) without getting pregnant.

Expert claims this is an indication of a milky line which Caprikorn Zurich Cast Iron carries in his family of known milkers at Caprikron Farm in Maryland.

DAY 2, Redwood Hill Bucklings in Alaminos
August 16, 2014


The imported bucklings from Redwood Hills Dairy are starting to get the feel of the fresh forages from the Alaminos Salad Garden. We are slowly  increasing the pelleted goat's feed being fed to the new arrivals from the United States. We have given them water with dextrose powder to rehydrate them from their long trip from San Francisco.

We have big plans for the Saanen buckling kid of Cardamon in 2015. We will use him to breed the progenies of the Cast Iron Justine line cross. For the Alpine buckling kid of X Rated Cha Cha, we will use him for the production of the Alpine Anglo Saanen Cross
