MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A South St. Paul beef packing plant is temporarily shutting down, leaving 300 people without a job.

Dakota Premium Foods officials say the closure is due to an extremely short supply of cattle.

The number of cattle in the U.S. is at its lowest level since the early 1950s.

Dakota is the last beef processing facility in the area.

The company doesn’t know how long the shutdown will last, but hope cattle supplies increase in the coming months.
