April 20, 2011 by Des Moines Register
April 20, 2011, Osceola, IA – Clarke County will become home next year to what is billed as the world’s largest turkey hatchery after an Alabama company completes the 86,000-square-foot facility.
Work will begin on what will be 24 buildings that will house the hatcheries and some hens. About 50 workers will be hired during the run-up to what Kenyon said would be the plant’s first sales by Jan. 1.
