This is the world’s longest and most comprehensive eBook on sustainable, profitable, natural, farming and gardening, with alternatives to chemicals. It also gives human health information and tips on investing profitably.
There are hundreds of colour photographs, and the total cost is a fraction of printing, which in the low sales of agricultural books would be prohibitive.GrazingInfo is a technical publication, and the best thing about it, is that it is updated. Some chapters are up to version 1.9, which is nine updates. There is also a free question and answer service which is proving extremely popular. The most pleasing aspect is that in the first year, we have received 53 thanks and testimonials. eBooks are the way of the future. All or parts can be printed, e-mailed, etc. Internet published volumes are now many times that of printed publications. The author, Vaughan Jones, started farming in 1943 aged 12 when he bought a cow, at 13 took a two year economics and physics course, at 15 took a two year Agricultural course, then worked on, and then managed his parents 100 ha mixed farm. In 1954 he moved to New Zealand, worked for three excellent dairy farmers. One also farmed sheep. He then bought with a 90% mortgage a 60 ha Waikato peat runoff on Piako Road, Gordonton, later bought two neighbours’ raw peat and improved from 28 cows to 180, then engaged a 50% sharemilker in 1966 and retired - for two years. Lynton Symonds sharemilked for him and his wife Auriel for 12 years then bought his own farm.
The information is practical and profitable, easy to read in simple language and backed by trials and photos.
Vaughan’s unique 60+ spreadsheet software programs lead the farming world and are used by many including the NZ Livestock Improvement Corp (LIC) at his suggestion to change from Breeding Index to Breeding and Production Worth in 1987.
Walton, Waikato, dairy farmers lost NZ$244,000 in 2009, and made $300,000 profit four years later, by doing what is in this eBook. Farmers who apply adequate LimeMagPlus (see Elements > Calcium) stop using urea so grow more clovers, eliminate ryegrass pulling, facial eczema and pasture rejection from mould, and reduce weeds - without any spraying.
