Cargill laid off 45 employees in the Floyd County town of Lockney. Cargill blames drought for the shutdown of the cattle feed yard. Feed prices have gone up, while local ranchers have lost access to watering. The company also closed down its meat plant (packing) in Plainview this year, 2000 jobs were eliminated. Friona feed yard was not affected.
