Indigofera at Iba Pa in Plastic Seedling Bags Being Readied for the 2011 Agri Link Show

July 2, 2011

 

Waiting for the start of the Mitra Dairy Line kidding season in August gave us time to spare at AGF to do something productive. We are trying to set up a system to do composting for the big volume of farm waste produced from AGF goat operation. The compost produced provides a good source of organic fertilizer for the Alaminos Salad Garden.  Goat manure are excellent for increasing the quality and aroma of fruits and the oil content of herbs.

 

The huge success of the Alaminos Salad Garden (ASG) has created a window of opportunity to supply the demand for ready to plant legumes from the  ASG in seedling bags.  Our top seller is Indigofera followed closely by Mulberry. We are selling the seedlings at Php20 pesos each pickup in Alaminos.

 

In 2009, we bought about 2000 fresh cuttings of Mulberry from a fellow goat raiser in Davao City. It cost us about Php15 pesos each for the Mulberry cuttings landed in Alaminos. The sad part of it only 40% survived when we planted it in the field. We complained and the rude reply we got was maybe we donít know how to plant it properly or we planted it upside down.

 

This experience has taught us in selling seedlings or cuttings, survival rate should be high priority when it is planted in the field. Otherwise credibility of the seller suffers. As a medium for the seedlings in plastic bags we used the composted combination of farm waste forages and goat manure. It is very rich source of micro nutrients and nitrogen. The texture of the compost is a good absorbent for moisture retention.

 

AGF have cleared a 220 square meter nursery area for  legume seedlings in plastic bag production. Priority at the moment is to produce 5000 Indigofera seedlings for the October 6 to 8, 2011 Agri Link Show at the World Trade Center. The theme of AGF booth is the Alaminos Salad Garden and its positive effect in AGF goat production. Well bred and fast growing goat breeders who graduated from the Alaminos Salad Garden feeding program would be showcased at the 2011 Agri Link Show.

 


Mulato II in the ALAMINOS SALAD GARDEN

 


Signal Grass in the ALAMINOS SALAD GARDEN


MULATO II In The Alaminos Salad Garden
August 2, 2015


Mulato II ( hybrid signal grass) Brachiaria ruziziensis X B.decumbens X B. brizantha has broader leaves compared to the signal grass we have in Alaminos. It looks like its very palatable and the leaves looks softer compared to signal grass we have in Alaminos. The leaves of signal grass looks tougher.

The seeds of Mulato II came from the National Dairy Authority.
We saw the seeds of the NDA New Zealand Dairy project at the Dairy Congress in Malvar, Batangas. We brought home seeds of Mulato II and Mombasa.

Signal grass loves the rains the past weeks. The original signal grass we planted came from the farm of the late Speaker Ramon Mitra in Sto, Tomas Batangas through our friend Dado Mitra. Dado gave us signal grass which we uprooted from his farm and replanted in Alaminos.

Issues of toxicity have been raised about signal grass, photosensitisation occurring in sheep and goats on pasture. To address this issue we only serve our  signal grass once or twice a week served cut and carry style. The dairy goats in Alaminos Goat Farm are on complete confinement. We have not recorded any problem with photosensitisation in Alaminos.

First Batch of Replacement Dairy Goats from the Alaminos Salad Garden Feeding Program

June 30, 2011

 

AGF is proud to share the first pictures of the first batch of replacement dairy goats to graduate from the Alaminos Salad Garden Feeding program. The young doelings were weaned at 60 days, fed  concentrate feeds and fresh legumes plus young forage grass from the Alaminos Salad Garden.

 

The initial batch of graduates from the program continues to bring a lot of joy for us at AGF. We feel rewarded for all the hard work we have done the past months in raising them. The smooth and shinny hair coats are their prominent features. They are very fast growers and the only thing left for us to do is not to rush in breeding them. We intend to start breeding at 12 months or if we will have the patience, let them mature some more.
