Minnequa Dairy

CF&I purchased this property and began making improvements to the dairy in 1917, which included the purchase a whole heard of new cows; “the best Holstein grade heard that could be found.” CF&I took control of the Minnequa Dairy to provide patients of the Minnequa Hospital, also owned by the company, with a supply of milk that was “beyond suspicion.” The Minnequa Dairy was located near present-day Stem Beach, just south of Pueblo, and operated until the 1930’s.
