(12/17/13) A new owner was announced today for two large Wisconsin chicken food facilities.  The Maschhoffs of Carlyle Illinois has completed the purchase of G-N-P, the owner of Gold-'n-Plump Chicken of Arcadia.

 Terms of the deal were not disclosed.  The Maschhoffs is the largest family-owned pork producer in North America.  G-N-P is based in Saint Cloud Minnesota.  It has a number of chicken brands -- including the Gold-'n-Plump processing plant in Arcadia, and a chicken hatchery in Independence.  Both those facilities are in Trempealeau County.  The new owner says the two companies' production businesses will keep operating as separate business units.
