On the Road Seminar with Kevin Rund

Trucking regulations can be complicated, and farm exemptions compound that complexity.  Seems everyone has a different answer to your question.  Come join us at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 13th at the American Legion located at 501 N. Main St. in Reynolds to find out what you need to know.

We’re hosting a two-hour seminar that focuses on trucking laws—old and new—specifically for farmers.  We’ll use a new format this year to remind you of rules that apply and help you identify means of relief.  And a new segment will use your real-life examples to illustrate how regulations affect farmers.

Throughout it all, you'll have the chance to ask those farm trucking questions that everyone seems to have an opinion about, but no one can agree on an answer.

Trucking laws have been reshaped in recent years with more changes scheduled for 2018.  Rules affected include:  farmer exemptions, Harvest Season Emergency permit, longer trucks on local roads, Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), UCR filing deadline, anhydrous ammonia nurse tank movements, and proof of citizenship requirements.

Presenting the seminar will be Kevin Rund and Kirby Wagner who specialize in farm transportation issues for the Illinois Farm Bureau®.  And you’ll receive take-home materials covering these topics.

The seminar is free courtesy of your county and state Farm Bureaus®, but advance registration is requested.  Please call the Mercer County Farm Bureau at (309) 582-5116 to reserve your place at the On-the-Road Seminar.

Come join us and get your farm trucking questions answered.
