Kevin Rund will be bringing his popular “On the Road” program back to southeastern Illinois this month. There will be six opportunities for you to attend his program…
January 29 – White County Farm Bureau, Carmi, 12:00 p.m., RSVP by January 22
January 30 – Hamilton County Farm Bureau, McLeansboro, 12:00 p.m., RSVP by January 23
January 30 – Farm Credit Illinois, Mt. Vernon, 5:30 p.m., RSVP by January 23

January 31 – Frontier Community College Bob Boyles Hall, Fairfield, 12:00 p.m., RSVP by January 24
Each program will be a two-hour seminar (including a meal) 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 Illinois Farm Bureau, but advance registration is requested. Please contact the county Farm Bureau (phone #’s are page 2) to RSVP by the deadline listed above.
