Default Farming with Earth lifeforms

There was talk of making Botany a going concern with farming for export. Some questions were brought up about importing animals and plants from Earth because of possible ecological impact. It seemed to me that many of the things farmed by the original Farmers were probably imported there anyway. The grain especially and possibly the loo-cows. Would it make sense to import chickens, cows, green beans, etc. at least on a limited basis? The way the population was swelling they couldn't possible continue in the hunter-gatherer mode and I don't see how rock squats could reproduce and mature fast enough to fill all the needs of the colony, much less be a viable export.
