The Arkansas Blog's El Dorado bureau chief sends word that a buyer is in the works for the Pilgrim's Pride poultry plant in Farmerville, La., whose employees included many Arkansas workers. No word in that article on the closed El Dorado facility. He notes legislation in the works by an El Dorado lawmaker that might allow the local government to take over the plant for potential re-use.
UPDATE: Talk Business reports on the rejected La. purchase offer and the speculation on what the heck Pilgirm's Pride is up to.
