A groundbreaking ceremony takes place Thursday in southwestern Kansas for a $20 million dairy ingredient and cheese processing plant. The facility will employ 60 people when it is finished.

Governor Sam Brownback is among the officials scheduled to attend the ceremonial start of construction of the Kansas Dairy Ingredients plant in Hugoton. It's expected to open later this year.

Company officials have said the plant will initially process about 1 million pounds of milk per day, growing to 2.5 million pounds by the end of 2013. The expansion will allow for production of cheese and other dry milk ingredients.

Construction is expected to create about 150 temporary jobs.
