Food Safety & Security Benefits
(There are many food safety benefits to backyard eggs & dairy – we’ve just listed a few!)
- Dairy and eggs produced in Concentrated Animal Feed Operations (CAFOs) are extremely vulnerable to food-borne bacteria like E coli and salmonella
- Backyard food-producing animals can provide a reliably secure (and inflation-proof) source of protein for families
- An overwhelming percentage of the food Coloradoans consume is grown outside of Colorado. This leaves our residents vulnerable to disruptions in the food system. Food-producing animals can help to reduce the dependence on outside food sources.
