A new software program delivers a dynamic tool for measuring swine production feed efficiencies, growth performance and marketing results.
GFPro grow/finish software from HerdStar tracks feed budget compliance and production performance and reports inventory levels to bankers. HerdStar’s software team will be demonstrating the new version at World Pork Expo.
The new software links producers to the feed mills, growers and packers. A new feature allows users to query, sort and view data to find competitive advantages.
“The product is very easy to start up and does not require any large start-up fees,” says Bob Baarsch, HerdStar chief manager. “GFPro’s program is being rewritten to a new software platform so we are able to offer all the latest and greatest features. Plus, all existing customers will be able to convert their data so they won’t miss a beat.”
The GFPro staff comes from a pork production background, making them very knowledgeable and helpful. “This is web-based software so all of the updates and backups are included,” Baarsch says. “Bankers and packers are requesting data coming from GFPro.”
The new software release provides a fresh look at managing swine production using the latest in technical tools and capabilities. “I have been testing some of the new features such as its sorting analysis to analyze field performance of marketing, and it has already made a difference in our ability to help our field staff hit the target,” says Gregg Sample, Next Generation Pork, GFPro’s original author.
