On-the-Road Seminar Motor Vehicle Regulations for Cook County and Illinois Farmers and Farm-Businesses

09/25/2018 @ 1:30pm

Trucking regulations can be complicated, and farm exemptions compound that complexity. And it may seem like everyone has a different answer to your question.  Come join us at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 25 at Ted’s Greenhouse, to find out what you need to know.  A light lunch will be available beginning at 1:00 p.m.


CCFB is hosting a two-hour seminar that focuses on trucking laws specifically for farmers.  We’ll introduce you to new rules and remind you of the old rules that still apply, as well as help you identify means of relief.  We’ll also touch on regulations that apply to travel between states.


Trucking laws have been reshaped in recent years with more changes yet to come.  Rules affected include: farmer exemptions, Harvest Season Emergency permit, longer trucks on local roads, Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), 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 also receive take-home materials covering these topics.


The seminar is free courtesy of Cook County Farm Bureau® and Illinois Farm Bureaus®. Advance registration is required.  Please visit the Member Center or call 708-354-3276 to reserve your place at the On-the-Road Seminar.


Come join us and get your farm trucking questions answered.
