New IoH Training Videos

Questions about Wisconsin’s new Implements of Husbandry (IoH) law are answered in a series of videos produced by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) in conjunction with The Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the University of Wisconsin Extension. “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,” said Jim Dick, DATCP communications director. “Many farmers may not even realize there are new requirements for the equipment they’ve been driving on public roads for years.” The Wisconsin Department of Transportation website at is another source of information regarding the new law. There are a number of changes in this new IoH law that will affect farmers immediately. Other changes won’t take effect until next year. The Wisconsin State Patrol will only issue warnings for most IoH violations until Jan. 15, 2015, but operators are still subject to county and local ordinances and enforcement.
