Meatpacking plant meets opposition

Posted:

Some people in South Dakota are saying they don't want a proposed meatpacking plant where they live.  More than 200 people gathered Monday in a Beresford school to talk about First American Farms, which is considering locations in South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa for a packing plant that would produce meat that meets Jewish and Muslim dietary rules. More than half a dozen people spoke out against the idea of the plant locating in Union County.  A realtor who works with First American Farms says it's becoming unlikely that the plant will end up in Union County.
