            Midwest Soya International, Inc. (MSI) appeals from the district court’s ruling dismissing its breach-of-contract claim against Jeffrey Leerar.  OPINION HOLDS: We find an enforceable contract, but MSI failed to live up to its obligations under the implied delivery term of the agreement, excusing any alleged breach by Leerar.  We decline to address Leerar’s affirmative defenses.
