Some say it comes as no surprise now––
High hopes held a couple of years ago by midwest cattle producers to take part in the processing and sales of their beef products at Tama are gone.
The jobs – 540 meatpackers were laid off in 2004 – vanished with the hopes.
As the court process grinds on into it’s third year, records from U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids dated July 3 apparently dictate exactly what’s going on with the closed Iowa Quality Beef plant at Tama – and it’s a secret – by court order.
However, Tama Mayor Chris Bearden told The News-Herald Monday night a company has expressed interest in purchasing the plant and using part of the building for purposes not related to meat packing.
