While driving down the highway or gravel road on your way to work, home or an important appointment — do you find yourself behind a combine? A tractor pulling a couple of wagons loaded with corn or beans?

That is a common occurrence this time of year. It is a temptation to get irritated, try to pass when there are vehicles coming or yell at the slow moving vehicle to get out of the way.

But, they are food providers, and people need to take a few extra minutes to practice patience, give them space and let them move their machines to the next field to get their harvest done before winter brings snow and ice.

This is a press release from Clarke County Farm Bureau.
