Summary

Section 1 of the bill allows a person to sell, without licensure,
regulation, or inspection by a public health agency, an animal or shares
of the meat of an animal for future delivery if:
  • At the point of sale, the person displays a conspicuous
disclaimer or gives the customer a document with a

disclaimer indicating that the seller is not subject to
licensure and the animal or meat is not subject to state
regulation or inspection by a public health agency and that
the animal or meat is not intended for resale; and
  • The animal or meat is delivered directly from the seller to
an informed end consumer and is sold only in Colorado and
the sale does not involve interstate commerce.
A person who makes a purchase under the bill is prohibited from
reselling the animal or animal share. The bill clarifies that the seller is not
liable in a civil action for damages caused by inadequately cooking or
improperly preparing the animal or animal share.
Section 2 limits the number of brand inspections for an animal
share sale to a single inspection before slaughter. Each purchaser must be
listed on the inspection certificate. The state board of stock inspection
commissioners will promulgate rules establishing procedures for a single
inspection.
