Meatpacking Plant Going on Auction Block in North Dakota

A North Dakota meatpacking plant that began as a facility to process beef according to Islamic law is going on the auction block.

Maas Companies of Rochester, Minnesota, is auctioning the 18,000-square-foot facility in Harvey on June 4.

The $2.7 million plant began operations in 2001 as Dakota Halal Processing but went bankrupt in part because of a drop in sales after the 2001 terrorist attacks.

A cooperative of ranchers and farmers took over operations in 2003 but also failed. Two Burleigh County ranchers later took over the plant to supply their Bismarck beef store, but that venture also didn't work out.
