DAKOTA CITY, Neb. — Tyson Foods plans an $8.4 million expansion of its Dakota City, Neb. plant, according to The Associated Press. Tyson plans to add a new, two-story building and add on to an existing facility at its beef-processing plant. A timeline wasn’t given for the construction projects.

“Because of the size of our Dakota City beef complex, we’re frequently involved in various improvement projects," Tyson spokesman Gary Mickelson told MEATPOULTRY.com.

“There is currently one project underway [in the slaughter area] that is expected to result in some additional jobs in a couple of years, however, for competitive reasons we would rather not provide more details at this point,” he added during a press teleconference earlier on Nov. 21.
