It's Harvest Season!

It's harvest season.

A Marathon County dairy agent says farmers are putting in some long days, harvesting crops like corn.

He says every year accidents tend to increase around this time of year because of those long house.

That's why he's reminding farmers to be careful.

"Accidents tend to happen when people are tired and you need to take breaks and have a sit-down, get away from it a little bit and kind of recharge and have a good meal and then get back at it," says Mike Wildeck, Marathon County Dairy Agent.

He says along with harvest season comes more tractors on area roads and highways.

That's why it's important for drivers to be courteous of the equipment because they're not moving very fast.
