ELD Mandate coming Dec 18th! We need to act NOW! Contact the US Capital to delay the mandate for Livestock Trucks!

As a Livestock Transporter you will be adversely impacted by the looming deadline of the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate. The ELD implementation date is December 18, 2017.

The US Cattlemen's Association is working to get a delay of one year in the implementation, in order for us to get the hours of service (HOS) amended for the transportation of livestock.

Without going into all the details, here's what the ELD does. It's wired into the ECM of the truck. So it will track every movement of the truck. There will be no gray area for the shipper, driver or law enforcement. 11 driving hours is it. 14 hours on duty is it. So about 500 miles will be the maximum shipping distance. At that point the truck will stop for 10 straight hours. The list of poor outcomes at that point speaks for itself.

The delay was pushed thru the House and included in the Appropriations Bill. It has been passed on to the Senate. YOU NEED TO CALL YOUR SENATOR - MORE THAN ONCE! Also call your Congressman and ask him to co-sponsor the Babin Bill #3282. That's an industry wide two year delay on the ELD's. All our Kansas Representatives are co-sponsors. Only 56 of 435 Congressmen have co-sponsored as of today.

Example Call-in Script:
I'm calling to voice my support for the DELAY of the ELD Mandate for Livestock Transporters.

What's the status of getting a one-year delay of implementation of Electronic Logging Devices for livestock haulers?

As a cattle producer/livestock hauler, this is an important issue for me.

I hope my representative in Congress will support the amendment in the House 'FY18' Appropriations Bill that allows for this one-year delay.

Please contact the U.S. Cattlemen's Association at their Washington, D.C. office for more information.
