LS Beef to hire in March

Innovation Drive is the road being built by the City of Lime Springs on the south side of LimeSprings Beef. The business will have an entrance off the new road. Any other business that builds on Highway 63 will also be able to have an entrance off Innovation Drive.

Every time a news story is found online about the LimeSprings Beef plant, it makes its rounds on Facebook and other social media sites. Then area folk start wondering again and again when the hiring will begin.

The public should be aware the business will be in the news. That means those who are promoting the beef products are doing their jobs. It only makes sense there has to be an outlet for the product before the first animal is butchered . . . hence, the story about the plant being told, to get the word out. The more vendors who hear about the story mean a better likelihood of them purchasing the product.

Part of that story is that an anticipated 70-80 jobs will be needed when the plant is in full operation . . . but only when the plant is ready to open . . . and not straight off the bat. It will take time to hire the employees.

The last word on the opening date was April/May. The opening date has been pushed back several times.

Kyle Wooters, who is in charge of hiring, said, “The tentative date for hiring will be the end of February. We will hire slowly with the whole process going through February, March, April.”

During that time, workers will be trained at the plant. But they cannot be hired and trained before the facility is completed, which will happen in February or March.
The company will definitely be putting ads in the local papers when the jobs become available, which won’t be until the end of February at the very earliest.

The company is going to concentrate on hiring locally as much as possible.
