Hooker Beef Plant Delay

Delays continue for the Smithfield Beef Plant proposed for Hooker. Last October the company said it would break ground in January, and eventually hire three thousand employees. But since then, they have said little about the ongoing delays.

A Smithfield spokesman says the company continues finalizing plans for the plant.

State officials say the company has told them they will provide utilities to the site, but haven't said when.

A state representative says he has no evidence the plant will even come to Hooker.
