Keeping Food Safe
It goes without saying that Colorado farmers and ranchers are dedicated to growing and raising the highest quality and safest food possible. They use the newest production and safety methods to insure that the food on your dinner table is as safe and nutritious as possible.
Ensuring that Colorado meat products are safe is a major focus of producers. Colorado Farm Bureau has partnered with Beef Verification Solutions to help producers implement animal ID systems into their beef herds. This process allows individual animals to be tracked all the way from the farm gate to you dinner plate to ensure that your beef is safe and trackable.
Egg production is a large part of Colorado agriculture. Egg producers take great care in ensuing their eggs meet strict FDA standards. The quality control process is extensive and Colorado consumers can rest easy knowing that their morning omelet is safe and free from pathogens.
Guarding Against Attack
In addition to ensuring that our food is safe from consumers, farmers and ranchers must also ensure our food is safe from enemies of America. Attacking a nations food supply is a relatively easy way to strike at the heart of a nation, sowing fear and terror by removing faith in a safe food supply. CFB has worked with the United States Department of Agriculture and the Department of Homeland Security to teach farmers and ranchers how to protect their products from attack.
Colorado producers have implemented many strategies to help prevent their products from being compromised and are committed to partnering with disaster and law enforcement officials to prevent any future attack.
Colorado families can rest easy knowing that ag producers go the extra mile to keep our nation’s food safe and secure.
