Feedlots separated by at least one mile will be treated as separate facilities, even if they are owned by the same entity.

Animals shall not be marketed as finished in a certified feedlot unless the owner of the feedlot verifies that the animals are destined to a packing facility registered and licensed by the United States department of agriculture. Animals leaving a certified feedlot for any other destination or purpose shall not be marketed as finished in a certified feedlot and shall be subject to all otherwise applicable brand inspection requirements.


Certifications are not transferable.


Certified feedlots shall be exempt from the fee waiver permit provisions of section 35-53-101 (2).


Animals in a certified feedlot shall not be exempt from any Colorado brand inspection requirement other than those exemptions contained in this article.
