The Indiana County Farm Bureau wrapped up Rural Roads Safety Week on Saturday, but the safety doesn’t end there.

With spring finally arriving, farmers are heading to the fields. Residents in rural areas can expect to see more tractors and planting equipment traveling local roads.

The Farm Bureau encourages all motorists to be aware of slow-moving farm equipment this spring and all year long.
