Northern Beef sale halted after contractor files objection

Posted: Updated:

It seemed like a done deal when the troubled Northern Beef Packers plant was auctioned in bankruptcy court earlier this month.

When White Oak -- one of Northern Beef's own investors -- submitted a bid of $39 million, the judge accepted.

The sale would go final if White Oak met the court's requirements -- and no one objected to the sale.

But, a former contractor for Northern Beef did file an objection on December 24.

And today, the sale was denied, extending the wait for the thousands owed in back-payment by Northern Beef.

The next step is a court hearing, scheduled for early January.
