ILLINOIS FARM BUREAU TO HOST ‘RULES FOR THE ROAD’ TRUCKING SEMINAR IN MILAN

Illinois Farm Bureau will host a series of two-hour programs focusing on transportation laws and regulations as they pertain to the agricultural industry.

Farm Bureau will host one of the sessions on Tuesday, February 27th at 10:00 a.m. at the Camden Centre in Milan.

The Rules for the Road Seminar will cover recent changes, as well as some of the more established but still misunderstood rules.  Topics may include the USDOT Number, UCR registration, Entry Level Driver Training, farm exemptions, and driver’s license classifications to name a few. In addition, one of the events will also be broadcast virtually on March 5th at 10 am. “These presentations take a closer look at the rules and provide an opportunity for farmers to ask ag-related trucking questions that they can’t seem to find clear answers for,” said Rodney Knittel, IFB Associate Director of Transportation and Infrastructure.

Knittel specializes in farm transportation issues and will lead the seminar series and will be joined by Illinois enforcement agencies.

Rules for the Road seminars are open to all Illinois Farm Bureau members. Attendance is free, courtesy of Illinois Farm Bureau, but advance registration is required. Coffee, water, and donuts will be provided.

Please call your local county farm bureau to reserve your place at the Rules for the Road Seminar by Friday, February 23rd. Registration opens February 1st. For more information, contact the Henry County Farm Bureau at 309-937-2411 or email manager@henrycofarmbureau.org
