County supervisors send USDA letter supporting BPI

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Woodbury County supervisors have sent a letter in support of BPI to the USDA.

In the letter supervisors thanked the USDA and US Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack for their support of the Dakota Dunes, South Dakota based company.

BPI has been under fire from critics about their product LFTB.

While BPI has no plants or offices in Woodbury County, supervisors say its still important to the county.

"We've got a lot of people that work for BPI that live in the Siouxland area and particularly Woodbury County. This definitely affects economically this entire area if not the entire nation," said George Boykin, Woodbury County Supervisor.

BPI employs around 1,500 workers in five states.
