Oberhasli Breed Improvement Program has Ober Boerd Lead The Way as Herdsire
October 3, 2014


The 2014 Oberhasli Breed Improvement program gets underway today as we allowed Lead The Way to have his time with the young Oberhasli doelings of the DA BAI PL 480 AGRIBeS program. The Oberhasli of the AGRIPBeS program have caught our interest in Alaminos with how well they have easily adapted to the tropical climate in Alaminos. The sweet and creamy milk they are producing is an added bonus.

The first generation progenies of Larimer are showing a lot of potential in the milking line. The prospect of producing a family of well adapted family of Oberhasli in a tropical setting with high milk yield,  led us to bring in Ober Boerd Lead The Way from the United States last year.
 

Solar Bubble Dryers, Product Launching at SBMA

Solar Bubble Dryer, A Green Drying Technology by GrainPro
September 30, 2014


Today we tagged along with Zac Sarian for the product launching of Solar Bubble Dryer of GrainPro in Subic Bay Gateway Park, SBMA. We continue to explore possibilities in drying Indigofera for the production of pelleted goats feed with longer shelf life.

The solar bubble dryer (SBD) is designed to safely dry agricultural commodities. The transparent polyethylene (LDPE) cover with UV and water resistant properties safeguard the commodities against sudden rains and  harmful effects of UV-rays. The transparent cover acts like a bubble that traps solar radiation and heats up the commodities being dried. Moisture is then vaporized and pushed out by ventilators (which also maintains the shape of the bubble).
 

Alaminos Saanen Anglo Cross and Alaminos Alpine Anglo Saanen Triple Cross

Alaminos Saanen Anglo Cross and the Alaminos Alpine Anglo Saanen Triple Cross
September 29, 2014

Things are slowly getting clearer  as we continue to gain more experience dairying goats in tropical Philippines. The more we are convinced that we are on the right track with the Alaminos Saanen Anglo Cross to attain our goal in developing a dairy goat that is adaptable to the tropical climate of the Philippines. The Alaminos Saanen Anglo  (ASA) cross remains to be the best bet to expedite commercial production of a dairy type milking goats in Tropical Philippines at a reasonable cost of Php 12,000 to Php 15,000  price range.

 

For the past three years Alaminos Goat Farm have invested heavily in bringing in finely bred dairy type Saanen, Alpine, Oberhasli and Anglo bucks from well known dairy breeders in the United States . The big investment were made with the purpose of producing dairy type families of Anglo Nubians and Saanen for the commercial production of the Alaminos Saanen Anglo and Alaminos Alpine Anglo Saanen Triple cross.

 

We are very silent in writing about results of our Saanen breed improvement program because up to now we canít come up with the commercial numbers our customers demand from us. Every time we write something about the results of Saanen breed improvement program we get a lot of inquiry for Saanen milkers. We have our own requirement to fill up for our own dairy for the production of Alaminos Milk Star goat's milk. The big demand for Saanen doelings is very encouraging for us at AGF. The Saanen would be the buck line of the ASA cross.

 

Alaminos Anglo Dairy Line (AADL) breeding program is well documented in our website. The AADL would be the source of the doe line for the ASA cross. We are slowly making progress  in developing the dairyness of the AADL  does .

 

The hybrid vigor that the Alaminos Saanen Anglo cross is showing makes us very optimistic of the work we have achieved as a breeder. It addresses head on the adaptability issues with the temperate breed of dairy goats in the tropics. The most common signs of problem adapting to the tropical environment is recurring colds and cough. This will usually result to poor growth of young dairy goats with rough hair coat. That is why selection of families that are adaptable to the tropical environment is of extreme importance in the selection process.

 

In 2015, we commit to sell 50% of the Alaminos Saanen Anglo Cross and the Alpine Saanen Anglo Triple cross we will produce. There is a catch here however, you need to reserve a year ahead to get priority when the very saleable dairy cross of the Alaminos Dairy Breed Improvement  Program becomes available.

Glimpse of the Future for Goat Dairying at Alaminos Goat Farm
September 27, 2014


The future looks very bright for dairying goats in the Philippines. It is our belief based on our experience that hybrid vigor gives a big advantage to the Anglo Saanen cross and the triple cross in milking goats in the tropics. We are targeting a selling price from Php 12,000 to Php 15,000 pesos each for the Anglo Saanen and Triple Cross doeling when we start selling them commercially next year.

At this price we believe that if they milk between 1.5 to 2 liters per day, it would make dairying goats in the Philippines profitable and viable.

Friends are asking why we were investing  heavily in dairy genetics from the United States the past three years? Are we not happy with the established lines of Saanen and the dual type Nubians we imported from Australia in 2007? Adaptability to the tropical environment is indeed an issue and the high cost of importing dairy goats is another issue we have to address.

When we started dairying goats in tropical Philippines in 2007, a lot of skeptics from government and the academe were saying why Saanen in the tropics? At that time we imported close to a hundred Saanens, Anglo Nuibians and commercial Saanens from Tasmania in Australia. If you notice we also brought in a few Anglo Nubians just in case the Saanens would not adapt to the tropics like what the doomsayers are telling us.

Looking back why the skeptics were very pessimistic at that time, we found out of a failed government project in 1997 funded by US AID Pl 480 Program from the United States. The project brought in a plane load of Saanens from the USA. The project failed with  not a single drop of milk reaching the supermarket trade. The Saanens were given to farmers who were not prepared to handle the temperate Saanen dairy breed. No preparation for  forage development were done before the arrival of the dairy goats.

When the Saanens arrived in Alaminos in May, 2007 from Australia. we were well prepared. They were placed in elevated pens in full confinement. They were fed forages provided by our well established Alaminos Salad Garden served cut and carry style. By November, 2007 we were already milking the imported Saanen dairy goats in Alaminos. We started distributing Alaminos Milk Star goat's milk around Laguna in December 2007.

In 2008, Alaminos Milk Star goat's milk made history in Philippine Agriculture. Alaminos Milk Star goat's milk became the first fresh pasteurized goat's milk to become available in the supermarket trade in Metro Manila. It marked a milestone  in the history of Philippine Agriculture, skeptics became believers that indeed you can milk the Saanens in a tropical setting.

Pak Chong Doing Good in the  Alaminos Salad Garden
September 26, 2014


We continue to observe and record Pak Chong performance in Alaminos. Planting the Pak Chong cuttings horizontally would result to more new growth per cutting. Provided the Pak Chong is fertilized with 50 grams of urea and lots of composted goat manure plus the rains, our count is at least 16 new growth from a single cutting planted. Initially one to three new Pak Chong will grow from the single cutting planted. At 45 to 60 days we see additional new growing  Pak Chong emerging from the single cutting planted. This may be the reason why  the recommended first cutting be done on the 90th day. These will give the young Pak Chong time to mature.

Thank you to all our friends and buyers of Pak Chong, the volume of Pak Chong sales continues to overwhelm us, Maraming Salamat Po.
