Kuna sets aside land for development

Kuna City Council annexed 150 acres of land earlier this month for a planned development. The development will include a subdivision, sports fields and swimming pools. The development is slated to be complete in the next eight to ten years and will target growing families.  In total, 40 to 50 homes will be constructed by a variety of builders. The homes will be targeted for buyers looking to grow out of their starter homes.

New Beef Processing Facility in Kuna, Teammates in Texas

It’s fairly well known that one of the problems in the beef industry is not lack of competition per se, but proximity. Some feedlots and many of the mother cows in the country suffer from long geographical distances from packing plants.

Now, two of the best known names in western agriculture, Caviness Beef Packers and J.R. Simplot Co., are partnering to help remedy that situation for Northwest cattlemen, especially ranchers and dairymen. This past July, the two companies announced plans to join forces and build a $100 million, 380,000-sq.-ft. plant.
