About Us

Global Ag Connections is a web-based software company providing quality software to the agriculture industry. Currently, we have analysis and management tools for the dairy industry, but we are moving forward in other areas of agriculture.

Both of these tools are available via PC, smart phone or tablet. One advantage of this is having multiple people using our applications at the same time and changing data in real time. Another advantage of this is to keep all of your data in one place, backed up and secure with no software updates to worry about!

The program was designed to help simplify keeping track of herd records as well as providing an easy analysis program to help guide daily management for producers.

One of our goals for this website is promote "community" by allowing you to share records with professionals helping you manage your herd. In most cases, people in agriculture have other people reviewing their data. A veterinarian, a nutritionist, a technician or on farm staff. This is what we refer to as your "community". Certain people reviewing your data to work in the best interest of your operation and make it more efficient and prosperous.

Please note, this is not software that you will purchase "out of the box". We can deploy updates quickly. We can take in feedback from outside "communities" and apply them to our software, if that is what the overall "community" wants and needs.

BENEFITS

Global Ag Connections features two areas on the website to help producers: an analysis tool and a data management tool.

A ReproAdvisor can help you quickly upload your data from your current management software system; within seconds GAC will analyze the data and provide you a report specifying the areas where you are efficient and areas where you need improvement.

The ReproAdvisor will help you review the analysis report and then you decide what your next step is for managing your herd.
