The old ones were known by too many so were sending us too much spam and junk.

The most important things in life are our health and that of family, friends, soils and animals. These are all recorded under Health.

Information was recorded in 1960 after we won The Most Improved Dairy Farm in the Waikato award, and visiting farmers wanted facts and figures which has been used by many, including the NZ Livestock Improvement Corp (LIC), who at our suggestion with evidence from NZ and USA dairy farms, changed from Breeding Index which meant nothing, to Breeding and Production Worth, in 1987. In February 2013 Lincoln University recommended using our most profitable number of cows to milk, by using the spreadsheet called Dairy Cow Numbers for Max Profit. 

The Establishment’s Overseer is incomplete and useless in that it doesn’t use the leaf analyses optimum levels of minerals and trace elements. In their beginning Vaughan was asked and explained how pasture analyses were far more accurate and more useful than soil tests. In 1960 Ruakura’s Dr Ken J. McNaught, a practical scientist, showed what the best farmers were already using, i.e., that plant analyses were far more accurate and more useful than soil tests. Some scientists still argue over Overseer results and uselessness. More are now looking into it. 

In 1997 the Waikato Times wrote two pages on a dairy farming couple Tania and Brendan Fernyhough from Walton, Waikato, who lost NZ$244,000 in 2009 simply because of bad farming practises and were about to lose their farm because their bank would not lend them more. She contacted Vaughan and used GrazingInfo eBook information, and to their delight changed to a profit of $300,000 pa. After two weeks of GrazingInfo advice to NOT feed lime flour before calving, but to feed Solminix, so milk fever deaths stopped, animal health improved, mastitis and somatic cell counts decreased.

Farmers who apply adequate LimePlus as described in Minerals in Soils, Pasture & Animals in the Calcium folder, can then stop using urea, so earthworm numbers increase, eliminating Facial Eczema and growing more clovers, eliminating ryegrass pulling, facial eczema and pasture rejection from mould, and also reducing weeds – without any spraying. Doing all the above and feeding the animals Solminix makes them healthier, with less mastitis, one farmer dropping from 30 to 1 case, and with less internal parasite treatment of young stock.
