Curt Nickisch of South Dakota Public Radio reports on a challenge in federal court to a state law that's designed to protect family farms from corporate takeover. The law is intended to preserve family farming as a way of life. The plaintiffs in the case are South Dakota farmers, who argue that the law threatens their livelihood by restricting interstate commerce.
