Rocky Boy, The Future Milkman of Alaminos
November 3, 2015


The month of October saw Alaminos Milk Star Goat's Milk celebrating 8 straight years of continuously producing Alaminos Milk Star goat's milk. What a better way celebrating it by introducing the future milk man of Alaminos, Rocky Almeda.

We look forward to the future full of confidence that we will increase goat's milk production for the 2016 milking season by at least 20%. The 2016 milking season starts early, 2nd week of December, 2015. It is the consensus of the Alaminos Milk Star team that we have good dairy genetic material in place ideal to milk under the tropical condition of the Philippines. Good goat nutrition provided by the Alaminos Salad Garden feeding program compliments the well selected young dairy milking goats for 2016.
 

Laying Out New Goat Pens for 2016
Laying Out New Goat Pens for 2016

To house the additional young dairy milking goats being retained for 2016 and beyond, we are starting slowly preparation for the expansion project to build  new goat pens. The goat pens would  be ready by the third quarter of 2016.

Worker Pre-Fabricating Concrete Slabs for New Goat Pen

We are pre-fabricating concrete slabs for the new goat pens we are starting to built. The choice of concrete is to make the pens  last longer. Pre-fabricating results to lower cost of construction and makes work faster at a lower cost

As we welcome the New Year in 2016, we are investing some more to build up capacity with the construction of new goat pens. The future is getting brighter in dairying goats in tropical Philippines as we commercialize doable technology in feeding dairy goats and the use of Anglo Saanen and triple cross milkers.

Indigofera, Best Known Secret of Alaminos Goat Farm  Success Story
November 2, 2015


We continue to be consistent with our statement that Indigofera is a game changer in dairying goats under the tropical climate of the Philippines. Alaminos Goat Farm celebrated 8 continuous years of successfully milking dairy goats in Alaminos since October, 2007. Indigofera is part of our success story as the main tree legume for good goat nutrition part. Indigofera provides an ideal high protein and energy feeds for dairy goats at a lower cost.

What better way to show our critics a solid statement with action as we continue to plant more Indigofera trees in the Alaminos Salad Garden.

Saanen Breed Improvement Program, Maturing
November 1, 2015


The Saanen Breed Improvement program is on the way forward with Redwood Hill Pippen as the designated herd sire to breed progeny of Caprikorn Cast Iron and Noble Springs Justin. In no other time in breeding Saanen dairy goats in Tropical Philippines are we more sure of what we want. Experience has taught that Saanens being a temperate breed would require adaptability to the tropical environment.

Phenotype in the selection process were given importance in the first part of the Saanen breed improvement program as we observe closely characteristic of families of Saanens that are doing well in the tropical environment.

We will breed every single progeny of Caprikorn Cast Iron and Noble Springs Justin with Redwood Hill Pippen.

Redwood Hill Pippen with AGF CI 820


Bred AGF CI 820 with Redwood Hill Pippen. AGF CI 820 is a product of breeding Australan Saanen does with an American Saanen buck Caprikorn Cast Iron.

Scott Bice, manager of Redwood Hill Dairy and Creamery has strongly recommended this Saanen buck of Cardamon for the Saanen breed improvement program in Alaminos. Cardamon has a lifetime record of 9,820 lbs of milk in 732 days in lactation. She has an impressive 13.4 lbs of milk average per day, in kilos that is 6 kilos per day.

We have named the Saanen buck Pippen. Pippen's sire is des-Ruhigestelle Eclipse a proven buck producing daughters that have a will to milk in Redwood Hill. Pippen has strong structure in his feet which is lacking with our local born Saanens.


We expect to see outstanding next generation Saanen milkers with the infusion of Redwood Hill Pippen in the Saanen Breed Improvement program in Alaminos.

Goldthwaite Gintong Biiyaya, A Personal Gift From Ms Becky Goldthwaite For The AADL Breeding Program
Goldthwaite Gintong Biiyaya, A Personal Gift From Ms Becky Goldthwaite For The AADL Breeding Program

Goldthwaite Gintong Biyaya, A Blessing From Heaven
November 1, 2015


Gintong Biyaya has a story to tell, Becky Goldthwaite wanted to give me a gift, a Saanen buck for the Alaminos Saanen Breed Improvement Program in Alaminos. Unfortunately her Saanen doe kidded a kid doe. Later, Becky decided  she will give me instead as a personal gift an Anglo Nubian buck for our Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line Breeding program. Becky asked me what name I wanted to name the buck, so I said Gintong Biyaya, a golden gift from a fine lady breeder with a golden heart from Wyoming.

Gintong Biyaya has Mindanao (Hoopla & Jewellburt) as his dam and Orpheus (Jewellia & Bottonier) as his sire. Kidding date is April 19, 2013.

Gintong Biyaya will play a pivotal role in a line breeding plan at AGF. Becky Goldthwaite had laid a plan  for us to follow to propagate the good dairy qualities and show type features of the Goldthwaite lines for the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line breeding program in  tropical Philippines.

Becky Goldthwaite  wrote and I quote.... Of all the kids born this year, Gintong Biyaya was our biggest! And the spitting image of his dam MINDANAO (HOOPLA & JEWELLBURT), another crossed back to SGCH Jewellia -top ten- thru his sire ORPHEUS. Gintong Biyaya, the long, lean dairy buck spells milk, milk, milk.

To Becky Goldthwaite, Thank You for your generosity in giving us a golden gift, Goldthwaite Gintong Biyaya for our Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line breeding program. I asked Becky why the gift and she said "I like what you are doing in helping develop gaot dairying in the island". Thank you Ma'am Becky   for your advice about line breeding to develop excellence and consistency. We owe you a debt of gratitude for your golden gift Gintong Biyaya, Maraming Maraming Salamat Po. Thank You.
