Unverferth Manufacturing has confirmed layoffs at its facility in Shell Rock.

In a statement, the company says, "As commodity prices have plummeted over the last year and investment tax credits have subsided, so has the demand for farm equipment. As such, we have had to make the hard choice of laying off workers to better meet current demand.  Being family owned, we keep any specific numbers private. We are introducing new products to be produced at the Shell Rock facility with the goal of increasing production and ideally bringing back our quality people."

Unverferth says at this time it does not anticipate a date for callback.
