New Processing Plant Receives Interest Free Financing

Lime Springs Beef is constructing a new $7 million meat processing plant in Howard County, Iowa.  Plans are to butcher and process up to 80 head per day at the 18,000 square foot facility.  The meat will be packaged at the plant and delivered and sold to retail customers within a 200-mile radius.  The plant is expected to be operational by August 2014.
 
Hawkeye Rural Electric Cooperative of Cresco is providing $1 million in interest free financing to the project that is expected to create as many as 50 jobs.  “It’s the kind of economic development project that electric cooperatives such as ours have the capability to get behind and help make possible for the community,” said Brian Krambeer, CEO at Hawkeye REC.
