Mild winter creates ag transportation problems

SHARE NOW

A northern Wisconsin dairy and crop farmer says the unusually warm winter weather is causing transportation problems.  Ben Augustine farms near Sheldon, Wisconsin, where by now, there is usually a lot of snow and a deep frost… but not this year. “Even before this, there wasn’t much frost under the roads.”

Augustine tells Brownfield many local governments have placed weight limits on town and county roads almost two months earlier than normal to protect the roads, which means farmers like him and loggers are struggling to move products to market.
