Expansion Starts at Cargill Plant at Springdale

April 9, 2006 - Posted at 2:07 p.m. CST

SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) _ Work has begun on a 17

million-dollar expansion of a Cargill turkey plant at Springdale.

The expansion of the freezer and production facility will

include 83-thousand square feet being added to an existing building

on a 20 acres on the north side of the city.

Cargill says the plant won't expand its current workforce of 950

people.

The expansion includes space to freeze finished products and

price products before they are shipped to retailers.

The work is to be complete in April 2007.
