Where’s the beef? Fewer cows, more layoffs

MILWAKEE, Wisconson (WTMJ)- Meat producer Cargill is shutting down its Milwaukee beef harvest facility.

The company, which provides food, agriculture, financial and industrial products and services, employs approximately 600 people in Milwaukee.

Officials said the closure of the facility results primarily from the tight cattle supply brought about by producers retaining cattle for herd expansion.
