Dan Borntreger is like a lot of South Dakota farmers.
He works long hours outside, wears a hat to protect himself from the sun and works with his sons to complete the daily chores.
But in other ways, Borntreger is very different from his fellow farmers in rural Tripp, a small Hutchinson County town. He doesn’t drive a tractor, can’t make a quick call to check in with his wife and doesn’t watch the noon news on TV.
