TRIBUNE, Kan. (AP) -- A large hog farm near Tribune in Greeley County is scheduled to begin operations in early October.

The business will have 60 barns when it opens but has permits for 120 barns, with each barn housing 1,000 hogs. It is owned by Seaboard Foods.

David Eaheart, marketing director for Seaboard, says the company began stocking the barns several weeks ago and will stock the final barn in the first week of October. He says 10 to 12 people will be hired at the farm.

He says the Greeley County operation will house hogs before they are sent to a Guymon, Okla., plant for processing.

The Garden City Telegram (http://bit.ly/QXv0yL ) reports Greeley County residents approved allowing major hog farms in the county in December 2010.
