Alaminos Milk Star  Fresh Goat's Milk

Caprikorn Krug's Zing, 2014 ADGA National Show Total Performer....Dam of CAST IRON
Caprikorn Krug's Zing, 2014 ADGA National Show Total Performer....Dam of CAST IRON

SG Caprikorn Krug’s Xing *6M, LA-91 VEEE records speaks for itself, 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.

Cast Iron carries as his sire SG Snow Zurich *B, the highest rated active USDA buck on record today.

We have high hopes in what Caprikorn Cast Iron will bring to the dairy breed improvement program in Alaminos. If pedigree alone will be the basis of success in breeding, I would say we are done but that is not case. Saanens being a temperate breed faces adaptability issues in a tropical environment. That is why adaptability is an important issue in the selection process for the Saanen Breed improvement program. This is the reason why it is taking us a long time to come up with an ideal Saanen milkers for the tropics.

Potenza Q for the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line Breeding Program
March 23, 2015


We are using TRR Potenza Q heavily in the Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) breeding program. Q is being used to breed progenies of AGF Joe Black. He is also being used for the cross breeding program we are doing.

TRR Potenza Q came from our friend Edwin Dumlao of Pangasinan. Edwin is very proud of Q's dam Potenza, 4.45 liters in 305 days in her first lactation. He said that she is the top performing first freshening Nubian in his farm.

Seeing the outstanding performance of Penny Royal Paloma Potenza and the performance of the progenies of Truly Ranch Romulus, Q's sire, we decided to go for TRR Potenza Q as herdsire for the AADL breeding program

King James For AGF Triple Cross Breeding Program
March 26, 2015


In addition in using King James for the triple cross breeding program, we will use King James with the purebred Saanens. This year with the very good result with crossing King James with the Saanens, we will use him to  breed ten selected purebred Saanen does. We will observe to see if we can replicate the performance of AGF KJ 908. a high performing Alpine Saanen cross milker.

King James ( Redwood Hill JC Adventurer) a purebred Alpine Buck comes with very explosive blood line from Redwood Hill Dairy. His dam is the 2009 American National Champion, EMBER AMICALE 8* M, with a lifetime average of 11.07 lbs in lactation. 2,180 Days In Milk with a total production of 24,140 lbs. of milk. Amicale was best udder in 2009 Nationals for Alpines. She has a very good top line and have the depth in body with very good legs to stand on for heavy milking.

Sire is Coltrane of Redwood Hill's famous Jazz line. He is the last offspring of SGCH Companeros Sequoia Jazz. Coltrane is extremely correct having excellent feet and legs, and being extremely dairy.

March 20, 2015


The three years Alaminos Dairy Breed Improvement Program comes to a close in December, 2014. Everything is pointing towards the Anglo Saanen and Alpine Anglo Saanen Triple cross as preferred milkers in Alaminos. We continue to collect solid numbers from the crosses in our milk recording project. We will come out with the official records of their performance for the 2015 milking season  in the first quarter of 2016.

Hybrid Vigor with the Anglo Saanen and Alpine Anglo Saanen Triple Cross
March 19, 2015


When we started our dairy operation in 2007 we brought in about a hundred Saanen and Commercial Saanen from Australia. We selected  outstanding Saanen bucks from Australia as herdsire. I remember we cross bred our local Anglo Nubian does with the Saanen bucks from Australia. We produced our first high milking Anglo Saanen cross does, AMS 001and AMS 002 in 2008. AMS 004 and AMS 005 followed the following year. In 2010 and 2011 our top milking doe was AMS 004. In 2013 and 2014 AMS 005 was our top milking doe in Alaminos. This year our top milker would come from the Anglo Saanen Cross and the Triple cross Alpine Anglo Saanen cross.

Friends would always asked us why it took us to long  to produced the cross in commercial numbers. In 2008 it was purely a business decision. At that time the imported dairy goats were producing more milk we could handle, so we decided to produce purebred Anglo Nubians and Saanens for breeders sales. The idea was we could sell the bucks of the purebred at a higher price compared to the bucks of the crossbred, which we will sell as meat goat for slaughter. At the that time the purebred dual type Anglo Nubian were in big demand.

We saw the huge potential that science is trying to show us with hybrid vigor that the Anglo Saanen cross milkers are showing. In 2012, we started a three years dairy breed improvement program. We invested heavily in acquiring dairy Anglo Nubians does from known dairy breeders from the United States. We acquired top class dairy type bucks with lines coming from proven milkers. Alpine, Saanen and Anglo Nubian bucks were brought in from the United States.

In 2013, we seriously pursued the cross and triple  breeding program. Using the outstanding Saanen, Alpine and Anglo Nubian bucks. In the Philipines we sourced two island born American Nubian bucks coming from dams with exceptional performance under the tropical condition of the Philippines. From Mayor Hizon, we bought the Goldthwaite lined buck Joe Black. We also got Potenza Q from Edwin Dumlao. Both Anglo Nubians bucks came from dam that peaked at over 5 liters of milked under the tropical climate of the Philippines.
