James Cries Foul as Dairy Farmer Group Announces Move to Kansas
February 10, 2015

There has been another shot taken in the Business Border War between Kansas and Missouri.
The Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) is moving from Missouri to Kansas.
The organization says it is taking its 325 employees to a brand new building in the Village West area of KCK.
The move prompted Kansas City, Missouri Mayor Sly James to blame the move on the Border War.
“It’s unfortunate that we have gone through this wasteful and destructive bidding war that doesn’t result in any additional new jobs added to the area,” James said in a news release
““This is not about Kansas or Missouri. This is about staying in Kansas City,” Monica Massey of DFA told the Kansas City Star.
In a release, DFA CEO Rick Smith said, “DFA strives to be the workplace of choice for employees, the new building will feature a modern, flexible work environment designed for employees of today and tomorrow”.
The statement by DFA gave no details on what, if any incentives the state of Kansas offered the company in order to make the move.
