Breaking in The First Time Milkers at AGF
February 26, 2014


We are breaking in the young Anglo Saanen and Triple cross does for morning milking in Alaminos for the first time. Science has given us the confidence to produce the crosses in commercial numbers this year.

Hybrid vigor or heterosis have given the crosses a distinct advantage against the purebred in milking goats in tropical Philippines at a lower production cost per milker. The crosses are more adaptable to the tropical environment compared with the purebreds. In studies we made in recording milk yield for various government agencies in Alaminos, the crosses were always among the top producing milkers in Alaminos for the past five years.


We are almost near the end of our three years dairy breed improvement program in Alaminos. We have increased the dairy type Anglo Nubian does with our AADL breeding program. We are establishing a family of Saanen that are more adaptable to the tropical environment compared to the imported Saanens. For the Oberhasli, we have identified the high producing line of the DA-BAI US PL 480 AGRIPBeS Program and we are breeding them to our imported OBER-Boerd Lead The Way.

The Alaminos Dairy Breed Improvement Program is so close in producing the ideal Anglo Saanen and Triple Cross Milkers suitable to the tropical environment we have in the Philippines. The dairy breeding materials needed to produce the ideal dairy cross in commercial numbers are now ready in Alaminos.

2014 will be a record year for AGF Dairy Goat Operation as we convert all our statements to solid numbers in terms of pasteurized goat's milk delivered to our dealers and production of the Anglo Saanen and Triple Cross milkers in commercial numbers.

Matured Napier Grass
February 25, 2014


We are forced to feed the mature napier grass in Alaminos to our goats to conserve the young forages for the milking goats.The long dry spell has slowed down the growth rate of forages in the Alaminos Salad Garden. We are seriously thinking of irrigating portion of the Alaminos Salad Garden.

Tender Loving Care Means More Goat's Milk at AGF
February 22, 2014


Dairy goats loves their hair being brushed and happy goats will always give you delicious and sweet tasting goat's milk. Adding good goat nutrition with Tender Loving Care (TLC) will always give you more milk in the milking line. Goats that are agitated have the ability to withhold milk during milking time. Its not a bad idea to pamper you goats with TLC in dairying goats in the tropics.

Part of the animal husbandry practice at AGF is to weigh them every week to monitor weight gain of young kids. Slow growing kids are identified and are bottle fed or are assigned to a nanny.

At Alaminos Goat Farm (AGF),  we put great importance for the production of healthy  kid does. They are a priority in the list of what to do first at the start of the day at AGF. Slow growing kids are assigned a nanny to nurse three times a day. If still they are not gaining our expected daily weight gain, we will bottle feed them.

Weaning Time is a Form of Stress For Young Kids
February 21, 2014


Young newly weaned kids are being monitored for forage intake during early morning feeding. Weaning is a form of stress that young kids experience when they are removed from their dam when they are weaned. The earlier they adapt to the Alaminos Salad Garden feeding program  the better for them.

Starting the young kids in good goat nutrition will result to good dairy goat milkers when they mature.

The Oberhasli does of the DA-BAI US PL 480 AGRIPBeS program have adapted very well to  the tropical environment in Alaminos. It  has given us the confidence to pursue the Oberhasli Breed Improvement program further. AGF has invested in a high profile Oberhasli buck, Ober Boerd Lead The Way from the United States.

Great things are coming our way with the second generation progenies of Ober Boerd Lead The Way hitting the ground  in late March.
