Hooker Beef Plant Delay

Smithfield Beef has again delayed ground breaking on a $200 Million beef processing plant in Hooker.

Last fall, the company announced construction would begin in January near Hooker.

They moved the start date back to sometime between January and March becuase of a longer than expected engineering, design, and bidding process.

But with March almost half over, the company now says they still have not finalized their plans, and have no firm date on when they will break ground.
