Perdue farms will close its Grant County Deboning plant in Petersburg.

The plant employees 365 workers. It will close after Oct. 11. Perdue blames the shutdown on declining prices for boneless poultry breast.

Company officials say they'll transfer production from Petersburg to other Perdue facilities to reduce costs.
