White County Farm Bureau to host “On the Road” program Jan. 29

Trucking regulations are complicated, and farm exemptions compound that complexity. It seems everyone has a different answer to your question on whether you need a CDL. To help you sort through the conjecture, come join us at our “On the Road” program this January.

The program will be held on January 29 at 12:00 p.m. in the meeting room of the White County Farm Bureau Building. The program will focus on trucking laws—both new and well-worn—specifically for farmers. We’ll take a special look at the latest rules, and you’ll have the chance to ask those farm trucking questions for which for which answers are so elusive.

Topics will include: J50 & J51 restrictions, who needs a medical card, equipment inspection requirements, out-of-state CDL use, the USDOT Number, post-trip inspections, delays in the UCR registration, use of process agents and Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), the USDOT Number, weight limits, and driver’s license classifications.

Presenting the seminars will be Kevin Rund who has specialized in farm transportation issues for the Illinois Farm Bureau for more than 35 years. And you’ll receive take-home materials covering these topics.

Advance registration is requested. Please call the White County Farm Bureau at 618-382-8512 to register for the program.
