The AgBoards Network, creators of HayTalk.com amongst other farming sites, have expanded their network of agriculture web communities with the release ofRowCropTalk.com, AgMeet.com, and AgLoop.com, a new social network aimed at both farmers and businesses in the agriculture industry.
The new websites now stand beside a lineup of other popular farming forums created by AgBoards: TractorFocus.com, RanchingForums.com, and HayTalk.com.

Most exciting is the release of AgLoop.com, a social network aimed at farmers and agriculture businesses. AgLoop has been called the “Facebook of Agriculture” and provides users with an opportunity to create an in-depth profile of themselves or their business. The site affords users a place not just to chat and post photos, but build personal and professional connections that can be invaluable in the future.

AgLoop also has bigger plans: to revolutionize the way agriculture marketing is done on the web. Marketing in the ag industry is a very personal thing and AgLoop supports the process from beginning to end. The site allows companies to create their very own profiles and communicate directly with their current and potential customers to provide support, answer questions, and promote their products.

AgBoards, LLC, located in Indianapolis, IN and owned and maintained by father and son duo James and Zachary Brown, was founded in January of 2010 after their hay and forage forum, HayTalk.com, took off in popularity and they decided to take the project from hobby site to a full-time job.
AgBoards has been featured in Prairie Farmer Magazine, Hay & Forage Grower Magazine, the eHay Weekly newsletter, AgWired.com, and the Zimmcast.
