Turkey Processor Set to Start Up SW Indiana Plant

VINCENNES, Ind. (AP): A new $75 million turkey processing plant in southwestern Indiana is set to start operations next week. State and local officials joined Farbest Foods president Ted Seger for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and public tours Monday of the new factory in a Vincennes industrial park. Seger says the new factory is the most highly automated turkey processing plant in the world, allowing it to operate with about 25 percent fewer workers than the company's plant in the Dubois County city of Huntingburg.
