Missouri Prime Beef Packers will close in April

A southwest Missouri beef processing plant is preparing to close next month.

Missouri Prime Beef Packers will close in late April, because the Missouri Department of Natural Resources didn’t approve the company’s clean water treatment proposal.

State representative Jim Kalberloh says “farmers from southwest Missouri have benefitted from the company being there.”

He says before the packing plant opened, producers had to haul cattle into Kansas or Iowa to be processed.

Kalberloh and other state lawmakers are trying to find a way to keep the plant open or bring another business into the community. The company says the closure could be permanent or temporary.
