Rocky, The Champion!

Spread the love

Long before the cerebral Filipino-American farmer-scientist Rocky French came to the farm to help me in my Agricultural Advocacies, there was a muscular Rocky, the Boer Buck, who was the Star of the Braveheart Farm in Kidapawan City.
Rocky was a handsome Boer buck whom I acquired from a California goat farmer when he was barely a few months old.
Rocky grew so huge and handsome that when I entered him in the FGASPAPI National Competitions in Cagayan de Oro City in 2006, he won as Champion hands down.
His offsprings, a young buck named Rocky Jr. and a doeling, also won in their categories.
I remembered Rocky because I found his photos taken around 2005 or 2006 while rummaging through old files in the farm house.
While I am extremely proud to have raised champion Boers, everytime I am asked whether raising Boers is a profitable farm activity, my answer is always a big “No.”
Matagal ang ROI sa Boers at maselan alagaan.
Hindi mo din puedeng i-crossbreed sa native goats for upgrading kasi masyadong malalaki ang mga anak at di kayang iluwal ng native na kambing.
Mas mabuti pa mag alaga ng Dairy Goats at may market ang gatas.
Or puede rin mag upgrade ng native na kambing gamit ang Anglo Nubian or LaMancha bucks.
