Northern Beef plant now set for Dec. opening

ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP)--Opening of the Northern Beef Packers plant near Aberdeen has been delayed until December.

The Aberdeen American News reports that the plant had been expected to open in November but now has a target date of Dec. 9.er

The new date was mentioned by South Dakota Agriculture Secretary Walt Bones at a committee meeting with state legislators in Pierre on Thursday. Bones says he had toured the plant last week and was told by CEO David Palmer.

The $100 million Northern Beef plant will slaughter 1,500 cattle per day and employ more than 600 workers when fully operational.

The land was secured for the plant in 2006. Construction had stalled, but the project received new life when a group of Korean investors took over in 2009.
