Hooker Beef Plant Statement Coming

Smithfield Beef promises to issue a statement within two weeks on it's plans to build a $200 Million processing plant in Hooker.

The pledge comes as concern grows among lawmakers and people who live in the area.

They say Smithfield has left them in the dark for too long.

Last October the Wisconsin-based company announced construction would begin in January.

It would become the largest beef plant built in the US in 20 years.

It would staff as many as 3,000 people.
