There is a new video series from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) in conjunction with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the University of Wisconsin Extension that outline the new Implements of Husbandry (IoH) law.
DATCP Communications Director states “These training videos are designed to give farmers and local government officials easy access to basic information they will need before harvest equipment starts hitting the roads and highways this fall. Many farmers may not even realize there are new requirements they’ve been driving on public roads for years.”
The topics for these nine videos include new definitions of IoH and an Agricultural Commercial Motor Verhicle (Ag-CMV), weight limits, lighting and markers, rules of the road, local options for municipalities and more. The series can be found here.
