ABERDEEN (AP) — A bankruptcy judge has set a closing date for the sale of a failed South Dakota beef packing plant.

A San Francisco-based investment banking fi rm still holds the top bid of $44.4 million for Northern Beef Packers, the Aberdeen plant that filed for bankruptcy last summer because it lacked money to buy cattle for slaughter.
