DAZEY, N.D. — After more than a year, Lloyd Wieland is waiting.
Wieland delivered two groups of cattle to North Dakota Natural Beef LLC, at its New Rockford, N.D., slaughter plant in the fall of 2010. More than a year later — despite assurances, and after a bond payout — he’s still owed about $45,000 on the last load.
