ncbaOrganizations representing livestock, bee, and fish haulers across the country recently submitted a petition to the Department of Transportation (DOT) requesting additional flexibility on Hours of Service (HOS) requirements. Current rules limit drive time to 11 hours and limit on-duty hours to 14. Instead, the organizations request that livestock haulers be granted approval to drive up to 15 hours. National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Executive Director of Government Affairs, Allison Rivera, told Southeast AgNet this does include fatigue-management training.
