It is note worthy to mention the four imported goat recognized in the Herd Book by the British Goat Society as Nubians: Sedge Chancellor, horned imported from India 1896. It has a lactation period of 148 days and can yield 2-3 kgs of milk; Bricket Cross, a Chitral, horned imported in 1904. He won the British Goat Society ' Best Goat Stud' for four consecutive years. He was thicker and heavier boned than the Jumna Pari and produced more milk. A grand sire of Holly Lodge Shingles, the first US nubian herd sire, imported in 1913; Sedgemere Sanger, imported in 1903 and Bricket Zoo imported 1904 did not figure prominently in the formation of the breed.
In 1928 (UK), owing to the impossibility of securing fresh Nubian blood, it was decided to form an Anglo-Nubian Probationer's record which made it easier to introduce fresh blood. To be eligible for this Record a goat had to possess three grand parents in the Anglo-Nubian Section and to be inspected and passed as conforming to Anglo-Nubian type at six months. The Malpas Herd (Malpas Ambassador, Malpas Melbex to name a few US import Malpas bucks who made huge impact on the US herds) had successfully used the Probationer's Record to successfully introduce more milk and had lost little of type. While the establishment of the Probationer's Record was beneficial to the breed, another regulation was adopted in 1933 which provides that no horned or disbudded male can be accepted for the Herd Book. This regulation was a setback to the breed for which most of the foundation stocks were horned. During the later years horned bucks were accepted in the Herd book.
We believe that improving the quality of Nubians in the Philippines entails Revisiting their Past. Learning their competitive history is the greatest tool for improvement.
