SHELL ROCK, Iowa (AP) - A farm equipment manufacturer has confirmed layoffs at its Shell Rock plant in northeastern Iowa.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1MpQFam ) that a spokesman for Kalida, Ohio-based Unverferth Manufacturing Co. says the layoffs will begin Nov. 30. Jerry Ecklund would not say Wednesday how many people are being laid off nor how many people work at the plant, which makes grain wagons and crop sprayers.

Ecklund says, though, that “if the ag economy picks up and business picks up, our ultimate goal would be to bring back quality people.”

Unverferth has been operating in Shell Rock since 1988.
