South Korea, Kazakhstan beef officials in N.D.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP)--Two Asian countries with a taste for North Dakota beef have sent officials to the state during the week of Jan. 18.

Executives from South Korean FK Beef and a group of Korean investors are meeting with government business officials and looking at facilities to produce beef for export. They hope to build a new plant within two years. Company Executive Vice President Hank Imm says the goal is to process 750 cattle per day.

Julie Ellingson with the North Dakota Stockmen's Association says FK Beef wants meat from North Dakota because officials believe it is better beef.

A delegation of ranchers and government officials from Kazakhstan also is in North Dakota. The officials are looking for cattle and livestock equipment as part of the country's efforts to develop its agriculture industry.
