While summer may be slower paced for some, it’s an extremely busy time for farmers – tending to their fields, harvesting crops and moving livestock between pastures. The end result is a lot of heavy farm equipment on major highways and rural roads. K-State Research and Extension farm safety specialist Kerri Ebert says farmers should be mindful of fatigue that may increase the risk of farm-related accidents and motorists should be aware that they’re sharing the roadway with heavy, slow-moving machinery.
