IBMS Inc. is the short version of Illini Beef Marketing Services Inc. It is not a part of Fairview Sale Barn, but has some of the same ownership and works closely with the sale barn having its offices there. Bob Garber, president of IBMS, is the lead fed cattle agent negotiating sales between producers and packers. Call Bob or Jake to market your finished cattle. Pay far less commission and have the competition of more than one packer.
IBMS also supplies grazing and feeding cattle for many customers locally and out of state handling thousands yearly. Jake or one of the Bobs are regularly on the road buying cattle and can accommodate about any stocker or feeder need.
IBMS does livestock appraisals for individuals, estates, partnership settlements, divorces, etc. This service is done privately by people who have been in the livestock business all their lives
IBMS can also place your cattle in reputable feedlots in Kansas and Nebraska should you desire to maintain ownership in your calves. This is done on load lots only because of freight constraints and a few lead days may be needed to find the best place for you
