IMI Global President Leann Saunders in Televised Panel Discussion Examining USDA's Animal Disease Traceability Proposal

CASTLE ROCK, CO--(Marketwire - Dec 21, 2011) - Integrated Management Information, Inc. (IMI Global) (OTCBB: INMG), a leading provider of verification and Internet solutions for the agricultural/livestock industry under the Where Food Comes From® brand, today announced that its president, Leann Saunders, appeared as an expert panelist on a special edition of NCBA's Cattlemen to Cattlemen TV show examining proposed animal disease traceability (ADT) regulations.

Saunders and other panelists provided in-depth commentary on the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services (APHIS) ADT proposal, which seeks to improve traceability of U.S. livestock moving interstate when animal disease events take place.

The show, which aired recently on RFD-TV, can be viewed at http://www.cattlementocattlemen.org/watchepisodes.aspx

"The ability to rapidly trace the origins of diseased animals is critically important to effectively responding to, and limiting the effects of, an animal disease event," said Saunders. "IMI Global is a pioneer and market leader in providing USDA approved livestock verification programs. We believe our current USDA PVP and QSA programs exceed the requirements of the proposed ADT rules and have asked the USDA to recognize cattle meeting PVP and QSA program specifications as being in compliance. Based on our 2011 year-to-date PVP program results, this would represent more than one million head of cattle automatically meeting the new traceability standards."
