ABERDEEN | The closing of a beef processing plant in the Texas panhandle could help a fledgling slaughterhouse in northern South Dakota fill out its workforce.

Northern Beef Packers in Aberdeen has sent recruiters to Plainview, Texas, to interview workers laid off at the Cargill Beef plant there. That plant is closing Friday.

Northern Beef spokeswoman Laure Swanson tells the American News (http://bit.ly/14uROKi)t that the plant is seeking to hire 150 more workers. Right now it has about 400 employees.

The closing of the Texas plant also will reduce competition for the South Dakota plant, which eventually will process 1,500 cattle a day from the Dakotas, Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota.
