RAEFORD, N.C. — House of Raeford, a North Carolina turkey producer, announced Thursday it will phase out its turkey farming and slaughtering operations in eastern North Carolina, resulting in the elimination of about 950 jobs.

WTVD reports the company will close its Raeford slaughter plant, which employs about 950 workers, and its Rose Hill hatchery, which employs 30 workers.

The hatchery employees will “likely be moved to other positions” in other parts of the company, officials told WTVD.
