BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota farmers say a Minnesota-based company owes them money for sunflower seeds.

Agweek reports that the North Dakota Public Service Commission is asking a court to declare Mitchell Feeds Inc. insolvent and appoint the PSC as trustee. Regulators then could start administering a $70,000 bond taken out by the company through Western Surety Co. of Sioux Falls, S.D.

Judge Donald Jorgenson has granted a temporary order that prevents Mitchell Feeds from selling or transferring assets until he decides on the trustee issue. A telephone call to the company on Tuesday was not answered.

At least a dozen claims have been filed so far against Mitchell Feeds, which is based in Hendrum, Minn., and has an office in the southeast North Dakota town of Horace.
