New Angus LLC the company that bought the old Northern Beef Packing Plant in Aberdeen South Dakota is working to get the facility opened in the future.  New Angus Executive Chairman Keith DeHaan, a Platte native says he’s excited about the possibilities but that it will take time to correct some infrastructure and equipment problems before they can open.

DeHaan says they’ve been speaking with cattle producers from both South and North Dakota and getting great input and ideas. He says they have no specific timeline for opening.

He says their goal is to process 1,000 to 1700 head of cattle a day but they won’t know the specific number until they open. He says they have great financial backing and support from White Oak Investors from California which owns New Angus LLC.

DeHaan says the Aberdeen community has been very supportive of their project and there are many former beef plant employees who are interested in coming back to work for New Angus once they get operational.
