​Minnesota Waives Hours-of-Service Regulations to Transport Feed

Gov. Tim Waltz of Minnesota on Nov. 3 signed executive order 21-33, which supports Minnesota livestock producers who have had difficulty accessing feed because of the state’s historic drought.

In effect for 30 days (starting Nov. 3), the order waives hours-of-service (HOS) regulations to give livestock producers access to high-quality feed.

Since July, the governor has issued executive orders relaxing HOS restrictions for drivers and vehicles transporting livestock, hay, forage, water supplies, and supplemental feed commodities.
