Piatt County Sheriff Encouraging Caution With Planters Out for Seasonal Work

Farmers are taking advantage of the sudden turn in the weather and are hitting the fields to get that seed in the ground.


You've likely encountered a planter on the road whether you're traveling on rural roadways or maybe the occasional planter rolling along the highway or through town. Piatt County Sheriff Mark Vogelzang says slow down and give everyone plenty of space.



Sheriff Vogelzang indicates you want to be extremely careful when you encounter a planter or other implement because of now only their size but because of how difficult they can be to navigate a roadway with traffic.



Sheriff Vogelzang credits the farmers of Piatt County for their attentiveness and respect for other drivers during a hectic time.
