|ANGLO NUBIAN BUCKS FROM ALAMINOS GOAT FARM.|
IN photo are 10 Anglo Nubian bucks from the Alaminos Goat Farm (AGF) of Rene Almeda and his two sons Art and Totie that will be turned over on October 4 to the Quezon Province Multi-Purpose Cooperative headed by Guillermo Argosino. This will be at the opening day of AgriLink 2012 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
The bucks will be used as breeders by the Quezon farmers. The animals are part of an advance repayment scheme of the Bureau of Animal Industry’s AGRIPES Program which is short for “Accelerating the Genetic Resource Improvement Program for Beef Cattle and Small Ruminants.”
Earlier, Alaminos Goat Farm was the recipient of 18 doelings and one buck of the Oberhasli dairy goat breed from the US. For every female Oberhasli, AGF will return to the government three females and 4 males for the one buck received. Repayment is within three years.
