Beef plant may open in late summer

ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP)--The developer of a beef packing plant at Aberdeen said he's optimistic it will open in August or September.

Dennis Hellwig said the Northern Beef Packers plant will initially process 200 to 300 head of cattle daily, but is designed to handle up to 1,500 head daily.

He said the recession and closing of packing plants in others states should make it easier to hire workers. Full production would require 500 to 550 workers.

The plant just south of Aberdeen will cost around $40 million.
