AGF 33, First Doeling of AGF Hillary out of AGF Obama in 2010
AGF 33, First Doeling of AGF Hillary out of AGF Obama in 2010

AGF will continue to monitor the progress of AGF Hillary progenies, being our prized champion doe we find a big potential in the kids she is producing. In our excitement we have broken our own rule to let the doeling mature first before breeding. AGF 33 was bred early this August to Sweet Alex.
 
To reach for our dream, we are using the Alaminos Anglo (AA) Dairy Line breeding program to come up with a dairy type anglo line. AGF Hilary is one of the foundation does we are using for the program.
 
In selecting AGF Hillary as one of our foundation doe for the AA Dairy Line breeding program we put value to her winning the Best Anglo Nubian doeling at the 2010 Agri Link Show. The Australian judges had seen something in her to select her as the winner and it is for us to prove through the milking performance of her progenies that she is real champion.

Every breeding season AGF Hillary will be bred to a different Anglo Nubian buck with a lot dairyness in their line. AGF hopes that the kids produced by AGF Hillary will help us come up with the ideal foundation stocks for the Alaminos Anglo (AA) Dairy Line breeding program that are adaptable to the tropical environment of the Philippines.
 
The AA Dairy Line  breeding program has a long way to go but we have made our first big step forward. Time is on our side, we will work harder to see this to its successful conclusion.

Slowly Preparation for BAR, BAI Research Work Gets Underway

August 27, 2011

 

The arrival of a Lister pelletizing machine from the Bureau of Animal Industry signals the start of the preparation for the commercialization work in supplementing dairy goat feeds with pelletized malunggay leaf meal. The project is funded by the Bureau of Agricultural Research. The Bureau of Animal Industry, Research Division headed by OIC Remedios Acasio spearheads the project.

 

 


Laboratory testing of Malunggay leaf meal was done by BAI Laboratory reveals a 27.1% protein level and an energy level of 4460 calories per kilogram. Amino acid content analysis is the next test to be done with the Malunggay leaf meal at Biotec laboratory at UPLB in Los Banos.

 

Air Dried Malunggay Leaf Meal
Air Dried Malunggay Leaf Meal

Preparation are underway to choose the dairy goats for the feeding trials using the present feeding regimen, the addition of 20% and 30% pelletized Malunggay leaf meal with the concentrate feeds. A total of three treatments would be set up requiring 3 dairy goats in lactation for each treatment, a total of 9 dairy goats in lactation would be used.  

 

Selecting lactating goats for the feeding trials is proving to be a little complicated because of the different stages in lactation, breed and age. It would take a little more time to come up with a balance selection process so that the results would not favour a particular treatment group. The length of feeding trials should first be pegged at 90 days then extended every 30 days depending when the dairy milking goats starts to dry off.  

 

The ideal condition would be to select dairy goats of the same age, breed type and kidding date. Actual farm condition is far from ideal so we have to come up with what are available on the table. A second batch of goats for feeding trials late next year can be planned to match the ideal condition but it will take the project too long to start to reach completion.  

 

Supporting this project is part of AGF commitment to help develop the dairy goat industry in the Philippines. AGF will see the project to its successful conclusion, it will provide all  its available resources to see this through.
 
To make the time spend for the project worthwhile for AGF, we have decided to do a parallel study using pelletized Indigofera leaf meal as a supplement in the concentrate ration for lactating dairy goats. AGF success in feeding fresh Indigofera to lactating goats the past two and a half years  encourages us to pursue this undertaking. Science tells us when you dry and pelletize the legumes leaves it becomes a good source of bypass protein.
 
This is what catches our interest in our desire to help the millions of farmers raising goats in the countryside. The addition of legumes to the diet of goats would immediately result to improvement in the digestability and protein level of farmers goat's intake. Credibility is always higher when you have numbers instead of stories when you do advocacies.
 
Good results obtained from the feeding trials  would put our advocacy in commercializing the Alaminos Salad Garden concept on solid ground.  

 

We would follow the protocol that the BAS and BAI project would do, in order to come up with a credible result that we can defend. The idea of the project is to see the viability of adding pelletized Malunggay and Indigofera leaf meal, its effect in milk yields and sustainability.    
 
Commercialization work is the final objective of this project of BAS and BAI, Research Division. Alaminos Goat Farm is just a silent partner in the Malunggay project but would take an active role in the parallel research work with Indigofera and the commercialization phase of the project.
 
Join us at  Alaminos Goat Farm as we do our share in helping develop the dairy goat industry. The results of this commercialization work funded by the Bureau of Agricultural Research and the Bureau of Animal Industry, Research Division would be a big  boost for goat dairying in Tropical Philippines.

AGF Tent Perspective for the 2011 Agri Link Show

Alaminos Salad Garden will be at the 2011 Agri Link Show from October 6 to 8

August 23, 2011

 
Year after year we invest the main bulk of our budget for promotion and marketing by joining the Agri Link Show. The Agri Link Show is the most anticipated agricultural show in the Philippines. This year's show will be held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City from October 6 to 8.  We find the show a good venue to showcase the products of Alaminos Goat Farm and the doable technology in successfully raising goats in a tropical setting.
 
The 2011 Agri Link Show is just around the corner. AGF have started preparation early anticipating the big crowd that visit the AGF outdoor booth at the show. Toti have asked his friend Architect Edwin Castro to help design AGF Tent. He came up with a perspective of AGF tent for the 2011 Agri Link Show.
 
Thanks to Architect Edwin for the help and for being a loyal customer of Milk Star fresh goat's milk since 2007, marami na kaming utang sa iyo... Maraming  salamat.
