Sasha J. Farkas, President
Tuolumne County Farm Bureau
Among the most significant new products ever launched by Caterpillar is the Cat® CT660, the first model in a full line of Class 8 vocational trucks designed to work as transit mixers, refuse haulers, dump trucks and in any application requiring a heavy-duty truck with the reliability, durability and low cost of ownership characteristic of Cat products. Adding even more value to the CT660 are the resources of the North American Cat dealer network, which is prepared to sell and service the new vocational truck line.
Attention: all owners of diesel on-road vehicles (trucks and buses), off-road vehicles (tractors), and diesel equipment owners. Diesel emission rules have changed.
A free two-hour public workshop will be held on Monday, February 14 to explain the changes in diesel compliance, what vehicles qualify for the agricultural vehicle extension, and to demonstrate how to submit your report to the California Air Resources Board (CARB). CARB staff will make the presentation and be available for questions. The workshop is hosted by the Tuolumne County Farm Bureau from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Opera Hall at 250 South Washington Street in Sonora.
The Tuolumne County Farm Bureau (TCFB) is one of 53 county Farm Bureaus under the California Farm Bureau Federation, a non-governmental, non-profit, voluntary membership organization. Our local Farm Bureau offers services and programs dedicated to protecting and improving the ability of farmers and ranchers engaged in production agriculture to provide a reliable food supply and stewardship of agricultural resources. Local programs include mentoring for Young Farmers & Ranchers, Ag in the Classroom, a Photo Contest, Scholarship Foundation, and Group Insurance Discounts, to name a few. TCFB is also active in land use and water issues.
