Integrated Management Information, Inc. (IMI Global) /quotes/comstock/11k!inmg (INMG 0.14, -0.07, -33.33%) , a leading provider of verification and Internet solutions for the agricultural/livestock industry under the Where Food Comes From(R) brand, today announced completion of a program that makes Yankton Livestock Auction Market the nation's first sale barn approved under IMI's PVP umbrella for Verified Natural Beef(TM) (VNB), non-hormone treated cattle (NHTC) and source and age verification (SAV).

Yankton's sale barn, located adjacent to the Company's 7,000-head Yankton Land and Cattle feed yard operation near Yankton, S.D., will begin offering special sales of feeder and fat cattle raised under IMI Global's USDA-approved VNB, NHTC and SAV programs. In addition to offering producers a per-head premium at auction, these programs qualify covered beef products for export to lucrative foreign markets.

"We are extremely excited about our ability sell VNB, NHTC and SAV cattle at the Yankton Livestock Auction Market," said Dean Price, general manager. "This gives our producers the opportunity to add value and garner sales premiums while opening markets that were not previously available to them. At the same time, it reinforces Yankton's commitment to being 'Your Team, Your Partner and Your Sale Barn.'"

John Saunders, CEO of IMI Global, said, "We are pleased to be working with Yankton Livestock Auction Market on this milestone event. Yankton Livestock has worked very hard to ensure integrity and compliance in all of their PVP programs. This, in turn, gives their producer customers access to cutting edge marketing opportunities and the ability to enhance their return on investment like never before."
