By enrolling in IMI Global's verification programs, including the new Black Angus Verified Beef program, we have been able to market our calves at a premium compared to non-program cattle. It was exciting to be the first lot to sell under the Black Angus Verified Beef program, and we appreciate the opportunity," said Corey Traxler of Traxler Ranch in Akron, Colo.
