Mission Statement
In Alaminos Goat Farm, we love and enjoy what we are doing. Our customers always comes first at AGF. The work that we have done has opened the door for goat raisers and the government to see the huge potential of milking goats in tropical Philippines.
For the Filipino Farmers whose lives we want to touch, we dedicate the work we have done in our Alaminos Salad Garden Feeding Program. It is our stand that good goat nutrition together with the right good dairy genetics is a key factor to be successful in milking goats in the tropics as an enterprise. We believe that the Alaminos Salad Garden with Indigofera as the main tree legume will help  the farmers in the countryside make their goats to be more productive.

The blessings we continue to receive pushes us to pursue our advocacy in sharing our experiences with Indigofera for good goat nutrition.

Sharing doable and simple technology in dairying goats is what we do best. Creating awareness that goat dairying in tropical Philippines is a sustainable and profitable enterprise is our life long commitment.


Come
Visit us in Alaminos and see the extensive work we have done in making goat dairying  profitable under the hot, humid, wet and cold weather of Tropical Philippines.

First Lactating Young Triple Cross Does in Alaminos
April 20, 2014


The young dairy goats continues to bring a lot of joy for us in Alaminos. The udders are developing very well and they are doing close to 2 liters per day. These young does were bred early at 7 to 8 months, kidding at 12 to 14 months. Things are looking good  as we look forward for their second lactation in 2015. We see a lot of milk coming from these batch of triple cross does next year as they mature some more.

Time to Invest in the Alaminos Salad Garden, Summer of 2014
April 17, 2014


Summer of 2014,  saw Alaminos Goat Farm revisiting the Alaminos Salad Garden (ASG) . The ASG was very successful in providing the forage requirement of AGF dairy operation for the past for the past 5 years. This year 2014, the increase in numbers of dairy goats in the milking line and the long dry spell we are experiencing in Alaminos is putting a lot pressure on the supply of Indigofera leaves.

At the start of the year, additional planting areas of Indigofera were added to the ASG. Thinking we were safe with the additional areas added, the long dry spell set in slowing down the growth rate of the forages in the Alaminos Salad Garden. For the first time in five years since 2009, we were facing the possibility of running short  of forages supply from the ASG. To address this problem, we decided  to revive the old sprinklers system, we used when we  were starting the Alaminos Salad Garden in 2009. On top of that we bought garden sprinklers from SM Ace Hardware in Sta Rosa to augment the existing sprinklers and replace the broken ones.

To increase the yield of forages harvested from the Alaminos Salad Garden it was decided to add the high yielding Napier Pak Chong from Thailand. The Lampang Animal Nutrition Research and Development Center is strongly recommending it to dairy farmers in Thailand. They claim that an hectare of irrigated and well fertilized Napier Pak Chong has a potential yield of 437.5 tons/hectare per year. The protein level is between 11 to 18 %.

Seeing the good performance of well watered and fertilized Indigofera in front of the milk plant made us decide, to irrigate the forages in the Alaminos Salad Garden this summer.

Summer of 2014,  We Will Turn the ASG Green  by Reviving the Old Sprinkler System
April 11, 2014


Time to irrigate the Alaminos Salad Garden (ASG), we have planted Napier Pak Chong which requires a lot of moisture in the soil. The long dry spell is putting pressure on supply of fresh forage from the ASG. Our main tree legume Indigofera needs moisture in the soil for faster growth rate.
We will be using the sprinkler system and also do manual watering of the ASG this month until the rains comes in May.
