Another major pork processing plant is scheduled to open later this year.
The new Prestage Foods plant in central Iowa is slated to begin operations in November. Initially the plant will slaughter 10-thousand hogs per day on one shift, with half of those hogs coming from Prestage’s own barns. The other half will come from independent producers.
Prestage production coordinator Jesse Sumner says he’s been getting a positive response from producers who are currently marketing their hogs through other companies.
