Maple Leaf Farms, which recently closed its Racine facility, plans to sell
the 802 acres previously used for duck production at auction on 13 August.
The property being sold includes the processing plant, poultry buildings and other facilities. However, the company said it will probably not be used as a poultry plant in the future.
"The factors that led us to close the duck farm and processing facility haven't changed, so we will sell the land in 20 tracts to allow buyers to purchase just what suits their needs," said Scott Tucker, co-president of Maple Leaf Farms.
"The processing plant and poultry buildings have been maintained and can still be used for poultry growing and processing, but we won't be surprised if buyers are more interested in conversion to other uses," said R.D. Schrader, vice-president of Schrader Auction Co.
