LUVERNE, Minn.  — Just six months after a Gold’n Plump chicken plant closed its doors, an Iowa-based pork producer is planning to transform the unoccupied Luverne facility into a pork processing plant.

Hospers, Iowa-based Premium Iowa Pork intends to hire up to 325 full-time employees and process up to 2,200 antibiotic-free hogs per day once it completes $25 million in renovations to the plant in far southwestern Minnesota.

Final Luverne City Council approval is expected July 10.
