Caprikorn  Zurich  Cast Iron is the Herdsire of the Saanen breed improvement program at AGF.  Cast Iron progenies are all over the place. We see big improvement in the mammary of his progenies. We are breeding his progenies with Noble Spring's Justin


Cast Iron carries as his sire SG Snow Zurich *B, the highest rated active USDA buck on record today.  Cast Iron grand dam on his sire side is Caprikorn Renov Winnie Mucca with 6,848 lbs in 610 days in lactation., 99th percentile Elite DOE TOP TEN.

Cast Iron Dam is SG Caprikorn Krug’s Xing *6M, LA-91 VEEE.  She has a lifetime production of 14,134 lbs of milk in 1,212 days in milk (DIM). Looking at her pedigree, we saw her great grand dam is Caprikorn Atlas Cruzeiro with a life time record of 15, 376 lbs of milk in 1,196 days in lactation, with an average of 12.86 lbs per day. At her peak in her second lactation she did 5,110 lbs of milk in 304 days in lactation, for an average of 16.81 lbs of milk per day.


We will check the performance of the progenies of  Cast Iron in the milking line as we record their milk performance. Adaptability to the tropical environment is also being check.  The Alaminos Saanen Breed Improvement Program is on track with the  high powered Saanen buck, Caprikorn Zurich Cast Iron on top.

Oberhaslis of the DA BAI US PL480 AGRIPBeS Program Doing Great in Alaminos
June 6, 2014


Oberahslis are giving us sweet tasting and creamy milk. AGF Ober 464 is our top milking Oberhasli for this season. She kidded a pair of buckling kids last December 24, 2013.

Among the imported temperate dairy breeds we have in Alaminos, the Oberhaslis have settled very well to the tropical environment and feeding regimen in Alaminos.

We have selected the top milkers among the Oberhaslis we got from the US PL 480 DA BAI AGRIBeS program for our dairy breed improvement program at AGF. We now have first lactating progenies of our top milking Oberhaslis in the milking line. They are doing over 2 liters per day. AGF Ober Lar 172, a progeny of AGF Ober 464 is averaging 2.3 liters of milk per day.

We will breed AGF Ober 464 and her progeny AGF 172 with Ober Boerd Lead The Way.

Next year in 2015, we are very optimistic of great things happening our way in Alaminos with the Oberhaslis.

Cross Breeding the Oberhasli with a Saanen Buck
June 2, 2014


Among the temperate breed we imported from the United States, the Oberhasli have adapted very well to the tropical environment in Alaminos from the very start. As an added bonus  they produced sweet tasting and creamy milk which our customers love. We decided to cross the Oberhasli with the Saanen to see if the Oberhasli will produce progenies that are more adaptable to the tropical environment in the Philippines.

Improving the taste of the milk of the high producing Saanen breed will be an added bonus for Alaminos Milk Star goat's milk lovers.

Fond Memories of the Anglo Nubian Breed Improvement  Program, 2007
June 1, 2014


Killara Ram Stud of Sandy Green is one of the top breeder of Anglo Nubians in Australia. Seeing the pictures of Killara Ram Stud in facebook brings fond memories of 2007. In 2007 we imported Anglo Nubians from Australia for our Anglo Nubian breed improvement program in Alaminos.

Our local Anglo Nubians in Alaminos have a drop of Killara Ram blood through Louca Darwyn, a progeny of Killara Ram Lavanya with Killara Ram Peruvia as sire. The award winning Killara Ram Pamia is the granddam of Louca Darwyn.
We bought Louca Darwyn from Louise McIntyre who got her Anglo Nubian lines from Sandy Green of KIllara Ram Stud.

In 2012, we started the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) breeding program using American Nubian bucks as herdsire for the program. The goal of the AADL program is to produced dairy type Anglo Nubian milkers that can produce daily 2 liters of milk for 305 days.

The AADL breeding program aims to shift the dual type Australian influenced dual type local Nubians in Alaminos to a purely dairy type Nubian in 3 years time using the dairy type American Nubian bucks we imported from the United States as herdsire.
By year end in December, 2014,  we will make an assessment how far we have gone in producing the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line dairy type Anglo Nubians in Alaminos.
