In 1968 after Vaughan went to the Australian National Field days to help sell his equipment, they engaged a 50% sharemilker and retired from dairying and then helped start the NZ Agricultural Fieldays. He was made their exhibits chairman, then the first general manager, with Auriel as secretary, of what became one of the world's biggest agricultural events.
In 1979, wanting a new challenge and to export to increase NZ overseas exchange earnings, he consulted for Gallagher, and became Marketing Director, increasing their sales from $3m to $23m in 5 years.
In 1984 they swapped their 87 ha going concern with their 220 cow sharemilker for a 106 ha bankrupt cropping farm on Greenhill Road, Hamilton, and improved it so much that Ruakura scientists visited it in 1987 and copied things he was doing.
At 81 he is still helping grazing farmers make more profit from fewer cows by producing more milk in New Zealand, and less milk overseas after changing from confinement to grazing, with more profit. One subscriber increased profit in four years by $300,000. He improves animal health and eliminates facial eczema (without zinc or medicines) by applying LimeMagPlus to increase earthworm numbers and their vigour which eat the thatch on which facial eczema spores live.
This maize grown under Vaughan's directions, is 3.4 metres high (12' 4"), is 32 tonnes of dry matter per hectare (12 t/a) now worth NZ$0.40/kg of DM (NZ$12,800/ha) ensiled.
