Prison Goats and Cows Mean Business

CANON CITY - The state's largest goat dairy just got a whole lot bigger, welcoming more than 350 newborn kids to the herd in the past month.

Colorado Correctional Industries has doubled its goat milk production since the fledgling dairy was started a year ago at the East Canon Prison Complex.

That's good news for its Longmont, Colorado-based goat cheese producer, Haystack Cheese Factory, which is buying every bit of the average 500 gallons of goat milk produced each day.
