Work continues at AGF in repairing the pens of the bucks and the does. The wood in the feeding trough is being replaced with prefabricated concrete slabs

Worker preparing more concrete slab for the feeding trough. We are starting to make the feeding trough base concrete, the wood easily gets rotten so we decided to go concrete.

Doing  dairy breed improvement requires a long period of time to reach our goals. We need more goat pens that will last longer. From the present 3 to 5 years, we are aiming 5 years up before repairs are undertaken. We are adding more concrete and galvanized pipes to the goat pens we are repairing. In the future when we construct more goat pens for our expansion we would use more concrete in our pens so it will last longer.

The costly repairs of goat pens in Alaminos Goat Farm continues.

Redwood Hill Pippen and TRR Potenza Q Ready for the 2015 Breeding Season
June 19, 2015


We are ready and keenly awaiting the start of the 2015 breeding season. With the rains starting to fall and temperature turning cooler as the rain starts to fall we expect the does to go into heat. Planned breeding are well laid out with clear instruction to farm workers which bucks to use. Potenza Q would be our main herdsire for the Anglo Nubians and Redwood Hill Pippen for the Saanens together with Caprikorn Cast Iron.The Anglo Nubian bucks and Saanen bucks would also be use for the cross breeding program.

Saanen breed improvement program is moving forward, progeny from outstanding line of Caprikorn Zurich Cast Iron and Noble Springs Justin are being lined up for planned breeding to Redwood Hill Pippen.

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.

TRR Potenza Q came from our friend Edwin Dumlao of Pangasinan. Edwin is very proud of Q's dam Potenza, he said that she is the top performing first freshening Nubian in his farm.

Seeing the outstanding performance of PennyRoyal Paloma Potenza and the performance of the progeny of Truly Ranch Romulus, Q's sire, we decided to add TRR Potenza Q to the AADL breeding program. We will use TRR Potenza Q to breed the young the line bred Jewellia line progeny of Beverly Goldthwaite, Gintong Biyaya and AGF Joe Black for the 2015 breeding season.

We are always on the look out for well adapted dairy goats under the tropical setting of the Philippines. TRR Potenza Q is the second local born Anglo Nubian buck we bought in the Philippines. Q's dam Potenza average 305 DIM is 4.44 liters of milk per day in a long and balance lactation curve.
 

2015 Dairy Breed Improvement Program

Dairy Breed Improvement Program Now Going to its Fourth Year
June 17, 2015


We have selected dairy goats well for the 2015 dairy breed improvement program. After talking to technical people who are genetic experts, the focus would be to identify the bucks whose progeny produced are well balanced dairy milkers as a group. The idea of experts we consulted is to identify the bucks who are prepotent in throwing consistently their dairy character to a group whose average are close to each other. We have identified progeny of our Alpine Buck, King James, Saanen bucks Caprikorrn Cast Iron and Redwood Hill Pippen.For the Anglo Nubians we are closely monitoring performance of progeny of Potenza Q, Joe Black and Gintong Biyaya. We are doing a lot of cross breeding for the 2015 breeding season.

For the progeny of of our Alpine buck King James we will use our Saanen buck, Caprikorn Cast Iron and Redwood Hill Pippen to breed them. For the Anglo Nubian doelings we will use Potenza Q, Joe Black and Gintong Biyaya.

We are very happy how our dairy goats are developing through the years of hard work. Doing selection, we are starting to see the fruit of our labor. We are slowly raising our target from 2 liters to 2.5 liters of milk per day average for the crosses. Through strict selection we are implementing this year, we expect to reach our target of 2.5 liters per day average in two to three years time.

Mulato II or Hybrid Signal Grass Have Germinated in the Alaminos Salad Garden
June 17, 2015


One of God's many blessing in our goat dairy operation is being at the right place at the right time. Doing advocacy last April 29 at the Dairy Congress in Malvar, Batangas, while waiting for our turn to present Improved Pasture at its Best, we visited the NDA booth and talked to Ching M. Lumanta. We saw the seeds of the NDA New Zealand Dairy project and brought home Mulato II and Mombasa seeds. We planted the Mulato II seeds besides our office after the first rain in May. Now it has germinated well with the rains it has been getting. Another blessing from heaven as we try out Mulato and Mombasa as new addition to the Alaminos Salad Garden. Thank you po Ma'am Grace Jagmoc Cenas , for NDA New Zealand Dairy project in bringing forage seeds ideal for dairying in tropical Philippines.

June 11, 2015


AGF have partnered with DA RFO VIII for their SAIS RED project. Bringing simple but doable technology in goat dairying to the countryside of Samar is our goal. DA RFO VIII through our friend Assistant Director Dr. Wilson Cerbito have organized the LAKBAY ARAL farm tour to bring farmer partners in the Samar island to AGF to see AGF successful dairy goat farm operation first hand. DA RFO VIII Emma Morales was their team leader.

We continue to welcome farmers from the countryside for them to see  the concept of good goat nutrition through Indigofera and good genetics with the Anglo Saanen cross for success in dairying goats under the tropical climate of the Philippines.

At the end of the day success with the SAIS RED project of DA RFO VIII in the countryside of SAMAR would be a big step in the right direction in developing enterprise to improve the lives of farmers in one of the poorest province in the Philippines. AGF stands that dairying goats in  Samar being undertaken by our partner DA RFO VIII in their SAIS RED project with farmers in the countryside as their partner is a doable project.

Jump Starting the 2015 Breeding Season
June 10, 2015

Potenza Q trying to jump start the 2015 breeding season. The 2015 breeding season would be a turning point for the dairy breed improvement program. Data collected in terms of milk yield, quality of kid produced, adaptability to the tropical climate are being used to plan which bucks to use in the planned breeding being done for 2015. We are praying that the breeding season would start early so we will not have a big gap in the production of goat's milk for the 2016 season.

The dairy breed improvement program is on the third and fourth generation stage. Consulting our friend Dr. Cesar Sevilla , the common consensus is five generation of continuous selection for fine dairy character and milk yield performance would make it more permanent with in the breed. We need another two to three years more to develop a well established family of Nubians that are highly adaptable to the tropical environment with consistent performance in term of milk yield with in the family developed.
