Alaminos Goat Farm: "Thereís no show like the Agrilink

 August 8, 2010

Agrilink is set to feature good farm practices and small ruminants in its show this October 7 to 9, 2010 in the World Trade Center in Manila. This yearís theme of the Agrilink could not have been more in sync with Alaminos Goat Farmís (AGF) advocacy of promoting their own good husbandry practices in dairy goat farming.

 

From the time AGF started its goat operations in 2005, AGF has always believed in the importance of both GOOD NUTRITION and GOOD GENETICS towards successful goat dairying.  Good farm practices are necessary in nurturing healthy small ruminants such as the goats in Alaminos Goat Farm.


As a Magsasaka Siyentista of the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCARRD), AGF owner Art Almeda is actively involved in a couple of initiatives driven towards the development of goat dairying in the Philippines such as the small farm research giving focus to nutrition in the care of its Saanen Dairy Goats and the on-going Science and Technology Based Farm (STBF) Milk Recording Project which began in September 2009.

Experience gained in AGF Salad garden small farm research indicates that feeding legumes and forage grass such as indigofera, centrosema, and 45-day napier grass, in addition to concentrate feeds increase milk production of its Saanen Goats. This is reflected in the daily milk records from the STBF project which show
  that AGF's milking line has produced an average of 2.42 Liters of milk per day for the past 270 days. Moreover through the same daily milk records, AGF foresees the potential of its top performing milking goats to produce 3.7 Liters of milk per day.

Alaminos Got Farm has set a 305-day lactation period and 2 Liters per day  as a benchmark for a successful dairy goat farm here in tropical Philippines. Past experiences of AGF show that the 305-day lactation period is feasible with good husbandry practices.

 


Seeing the number of agriculture enthusiasts who visit the Agrilink Show every year, AGF is looking forward to sharing its experiences to those interested in this exciting and profitable business. The Agrilink Show is the most cost effective trade show that AGF has joined in the past three years in creating awareness for the goats and value added products produced by AGF.
 
In its 4th year participating in the Agrilink, AGF plans to showcase the outcome of their good farm practices through its Saanen Dairy Goats, Alaminos Anglo Line, Alaminos Anglo Saanen Line to Boer Bucks to its Quality Products such as Goats meat, sausages,  Milk Star Goats Milk, Goats Cheese and the famous Goatís Milk Ice Cream.

A pilot project of PCARRD in Region 1, 2, 3, 8 in goat raising called Rural Enterprise Development (RED)  Project. The progress of the Upscaling Red Project in Region 1, 2, 3 and 8 will be presented. The implementation of the Rural Enterprise Development project for goats is a bold move to develop the entrepreneurial capabilities of our farmers in the countryside.

 

Learning about the livelihood opportunities which the RED projects  give  to make the farmers self reliant. This is the way to go for government and NGOís  implementing corporate  social responsibility projects for farmers in the countryside.

 

The PCARRD  RED project  can be a good blue print for goat development in the Philippines with the farmers in countryside in  mind.

THE WOFEX EXPERIENCE
August 7, 2010

Last August 4-7, 2010 Milk Star joined the World Food Expo (WOFEX) at the World Trade Center which featured different food equipment, technology and freebies.Milk Star was one of the dairy products featured in the booth of the National Dairy Authority.

The prospect of joining the WOFEX was great Ė it was in a known venue; we had four days to promote Goats Milk and dairy goat farming but unfortunately, the outcome of the show was dismal for those traders who were placed outside the main exhibit area. What we learned from joining WOFEX 2010 is that even the right amount of planning and visual presentation becomes insignificant if people do not visit your booth. Location within the event itself is of vital importance especially because there were about a hundred more traders all striving towards the same purpose of catching the attention of the visitors.

Nevertheless, we are grateful to those who stopped by our booth and bought our goats milk as well as goats milk ice cream & goats milk soap. The World Food Expo was definitely a learning experience we will not forget especially the people we met and we talked to. We promise that the next show will even be better and livelier than this!

Donít forget to visit us in the AgriLink Show in October, okay? In the meantime, drink healthy and love goats milk!

Art Almeda Live on Camera at GMA 7 Unang Hirit

June 19, 2010

 

GMA 7 Unang Hirit featured Alaminos Goat Farm live early Monday morning.  When we granted permission to GMA 7 to do live footages and interview from Alaminos Goat Farm we were in for a surprise.

 

Counting the trucks and vans no less than 17 vehicles were parked inside the farm when we came  at 5:00 AM. The production crew, on camera hosts and their staff  were all over the place. All  in all we have counted more than 50 persons preparing for the shoot. Never did we imagine that it requires a lot of logistics to do a live coverage on the field.

 

Art was interviewed by Monica Verallo about milking goats and the pasteurization process. Goat products  were also shown.

 

It was a good day to promote goat dairying and Milk Star live on nationwide TV. When we delivered goatís milk to our dealer in Los Banos, Laguna I heard an old lady calling Art on first name basis and she said ďArt, saw you on Unang Hirit  this morning, are you selling yoghurt? ď

 

To GMA Channel 7, Thank You for featuring Alaminos Goat Farm on your Unang Hirit Show it created a lot of awareness and interest in dairy goat farming.
