Prairie Systems Feed Allocation System Integrates with GVL FeedLINK Electronic VFD System

by Feb 19, 2016News0 comments

GVL® and Prairie Systems announced today the integration of Prairie Systems’ Feed Allocation System (FAS) with GVL’s FeedLINK® Electronic Veterinary Feed Directive (eVFD) solution.

With this integration, producers can track VFD’s, withdrawal periods and process verification through a single web-based application.

“As new regulations take effect this year, the paper scripting process will continue to be highly inefficient,” said Joel Stave, Prairie Systems’ Managing Director. “This integration will allow FAS customers to make timely and accurate requests and ensure the rapid issuance of VFDs to all parties.”

Prairie Systems’ FAS is built on a foundation of production experience, focusing on executing nutritional goals while helping with other areas of the producer’s business, including inventory management, animal health, ingredient forecasting, and group closeouts. GVL’s web-based FeedLINK eVFD system streamlines fulfillment, tracking and storage of VFDs. Together these solutions make the entire feeding process traceable and help ensure safe food products for consumers.

“Integrating our FeedLINK eVFD solution with Prairie Systems’ FAS provides an additional benefit to producers by relating VFD information to other feed management tasks,” stated Cliff Smith, GVL Chief Executive Officer. “We want to make sure the industry has a variety of avenues to make the record keeping and compliance required for VFDs as simple as possible.”

Prairie Systems users can access FeedLINK from within the FAS. In order to issue a VFD through FeedLINK, users must have an authorized GVL account.
