Mission Statement
In Alaminos Goat Farm, we love and enjoy what we are doing. The pioneering 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, the Alaminos Salad Garden Feeding Program is for you. It is our stand that good goat nutrition together with good dairy genetics are the key factors to be successful in milking goats in the tropics. We believe that the Alaminos Salad Garden with Indigofera is a cost effective way to help  farmers in the countryside make their goats to be more productive.

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

Sharing doable 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, cold, humid, dry and wet weather in a tropical setting.

AGF Supports SAIS RED Project in Samar Island
January 18. 2014


To bring doable technology in dairying goats to the countryside, we are supporting DA RFO VIII in their SAIS RED Project in the Samar Island. Last November, 2014 we shipped 32 heads of dairy goats to our Tacloban, Leyte based partners.
 


Shipping Dairy Goats to the Samar Island

 


Anglo Saanen Cross Dairy Goats


To show our commitment and sincerity we have bred almost half of the dairy goats we shipped with our imported dairy bucks.

Unfortunately after a year after Typhoon Hainan another typhoon named Typhoon Ruby hit the area in Samar Island and Leyte in December.

Initial report from our SAIS RED partner ARD Dr. Wilson Cerbito, some of the dairy goats distributed had died after typhoon Ruby hit the area. The ones that were placed at the Malitbog Goat Station are doing good according to Dr.Cerbito.

We continue to pray that in our own little way we can help the SAIS RED Project be successful and help the farmers in the countryside of Samar improve their lives through goat dairying.

2015  AGF Dairy Breed Improvement Program
January 16, 2015

Breeding superior dairy goats ideal to the tropical environment in the Philippines is a very long process. Expert geneticist we have consulted had warned us that breeding for improvement is a very slow process. Breed improvement requires patience in selection through long years of hard work and investment. Every year we count our blessings no matter how small the improvement we have made. Adding up the improvement made through the years have  surprised us in what we have achieved. The biggest benefit we have seen is the improvement made have become more permanent within the breed.

 

Saanen Kids
Saanen Kids

The work done at AGF calls for the production of purebred Anglo Nubians and Saanen that are suitable to the tropical climate and capable of doing 2 liters of milk per day. They would form part of the foundation stock for the commercial production of the Anglo Saanen Cross.

Through the years we have taken advantage of hybrid vigor by crossing the Anglo Nubian does with high powered Saanen buck imported from Australia and the United States. Our top milkers in Alaminos for the past several years have been the Alaminos Anglo Saanen cross. Science was again proven right that  by out crossing two different breeds would result to enhance performance of their offspring.  The hetoritic effect can be seen from the very start at kidding. The offsprings are more adaptable to the tropical climate that would result to trouble free growth with the good goat nutrition provided in Alamnos.

In 2015, we will continue to add more Anglo Saanen Cross milkers to the milking line. The increased numbers of Anglo Saanen cross in the milking line will give us the opportunity to record their daily milk performance as a group. These will form part of  our basis in recommending the Anglo Saanen Cross milkers as ideal milkers for a profitable and sustainable dairy goat business in the Philippines.

2015 will be another exciting year trying to meet commitments made and at the same time meeting the dairy breeder requirement of AGF dairy operation. We expect to see the big progress we have made in the AGF Dairy breed improvement program with solid milk numbers documented by end of 2015. Feed backs from customers will also be collected.
