Land O'Lakes closing Madison plant, 120 jobs lost

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Land O'Lakes will close its butter manufacturing plant in Madison, leaving around 120 workers out of a job.

The St. Paul, Minn. based company announced it will shut down Madison Dairy within 60 days and layoffs will likely begin in mid-May.

The plant is scheduled to close in mid-June.

A spokeswoman says operating the Madison location is no longer economically feasible, and other Land O'Lakes plants around the country will make up for lost production.
