JOB MOVE: Tyson Foods may be taking jobs away from Iowa and adding more in Nebraska

Tyson Foods is making a move that could be good for Nebraska, but bad for Iowa.

Officials say the company plans to spend millions on improvements to its flagship beef plant in Dakota City, Nebraska.

The plans are to upgrade the Nebraska plant, which is about 50-years-old.  The upgrade will mean about 200 more jobs there.

The plant will no longer need extra supplies from Denison.

A news release from Tyson says the Denison facility may close next year.

That plant has been open since 1961 and employs about 400 people.
