Trucking regulations can be complicated, and farm exemptions compound that problem. It seems everyone has a different answer to your question.
Farm Bureau is holding a series of regional meetings on trucking laws specifically for farmers.
The northern Illinois meetings are March 5 at 10 a.m. at Tettens Grain, 1684 Nachusa Rd., Dixon or at the Will County Farm Bureau, 100 Manhattan Rd., Joliet at 6 p.m.
The two-hour meeting will introduce farmers to new rules, discuss the old rules that still apply, and help figure out whether exemptions are available.
Throughout it all, farmers will have the chance to ask those farm trucking questions that everyone has an opinion about, but no one can agree on an answer.
Presenting the seminar will be Kirby Wagner who specializes in farm transportation issues for the Illinois Farm Bureau®.
Please call either the Lee County Farm Bureau, 815-857-3531, or the Will County Farm Bureau, 815-727-4811, to reserve your place at the Rules for the Road meeting.
