Six groups representing various sectors of animal agriculture have petitioned the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to grant livestock truckers an extended workday that could last as long as 16 hours.
Livestock haulers will get another 90-day waiver on hours of service trucking regulations, the U.S. Dept. of Transportation announced Tuesday. That buys ag organizations a little more time to negotiate a long-term solution. But will 90 days be enough?
