OWATONNA, Minn. (AP) -

Caterpillar says it plans to close its plant in southern Minnesota and shift work to Wisconsin and Georgia.

The plant in the Steele County community of Owatonna employs about 100 and will close in March 2013.

Caterpillar spokeswoman Rachel Potts says the forest products plant will "ramp down" production between now and the targeted closing date. She says Owatonna production will be shifted to plants in Prentice, Wis., and LaGrange, Ga.

Potts tells the People's Press (http://tinyurl.com/b45ggl4 ) the plant will be sold.
