Chicken Wild Rice Soup recipe.

Colorado Dairy Products Keep You “Moo-ving”


LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Each month, the Colorado Department of Agriculture features a different commodity to highlight the variety and quality of products grown, raised or processed in the state. This month, Colorado dairy products are featured in our Chicken Wild Rice Soup recipe.

Available Now…Dairy Products

Dairy production is one of Colorado’s top ten agricultural sectors. Approximately 115,000 dairy cows reside on 125 licensed dairy farms producing approximately $430 million worth of dairy products per year. Together, dairy foods provide nine essential nutrients including calcium, potassium, phosphorus, protein, vitamins A, D and B12, riboflavin, and niacin. Look for Colorado dairy products at your local grocery store, specialty stores or at restaurants across the state.
