Implements of Husbandry Definition

SB 1121, introduced by Sen. Bruce Caswell (R-Hillsdale), would amend the Michigan Vehicle Code to redefine what qualifies as an implement of husbandry.

The bill would define an “implement of husbandry” as: a vehicle or trailer designed or adapted for the primary function of serving agricultural, horticultural, or livestock operations. Implement of husbandry includes a farm tractor, self-propelled application-type vehicle, farm wagon, farm trailer, a vehicle or trailer adapted for lifting or carrying another implement of husbandry, or any substantially similar equipment used to transport products necessary for agricultural production.

This bill passed the House Transportation Committee and awaits a vote on the House floor.

Farm Bureau supports SB 1121.
