COMMENTS NEEDED: Deadline Looming for ELD Exemption for Livestock Haulers

livestock hauler 2Send your comments to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to exempt livestock drivers from the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) requirement to record the driver’s hours-of-service.

The exemption from ELDs for livestock haulers – defined as “livestock, poultry, aquaculture and insect producers, processors and transporters” – is necessary because:

Livestock haulers are not, and will not be, prepared to meet the compliance due date.

The welfare and safety of the animals in transit, together with the safety of other drivers, are the industry’s top priorities.

Granting a waiver will allow for long-standing livestock transportation safety and training programs to be adjusted and provide the necessary time for training on the use of ELDs.

The American Farm Bureau is seeking an exemption for all livestock haulers from ELD requirements. Send you comments today!

The deadline for you to submit comments is November 30, 2017!
