Custom Coverages for Your Ag Operation
No business is the same. That’s why we offer many ways to customize your coverages for your business’s unique needs. Whether you have a large or small ag operation, these coverages can help ensure your business is able to run smoothly:
Farm/Ranch Personal Property Insurance
This coverage helps protect you financially if items used to run your agricultural operation – such as tractors, combines, tools, grain, feed or supplies – are damaged, or if livestock are killed by a covered cause of loss. This coverage is available on a scheduled or blanket basis to cover all your farm/ranch personal property. With this coverage, you can protect your farm/ranch property from damage for such things as fire, lightning, windstorm, hail, theft and vandalism.
With livestock protection, you’ll be covered in the event of an accidental shooting, attack by dogs or wild animals, drowning or electrocution.
Farm Pollution Liability Insurance
If all of your farm/ranch property and liability is insured by our companies, this coverage can help protect you against a wide range of farm pollution risks, including animal waste, fuel or chemical leaks, dust and additional pollutants that cause bodily injury or property damage for which you are legally liable.
Livestock Freezing or Smothering Coverage
Covers blizzard-related livestock loss.
This coverage offers protection against the loss of cattle, swine and poultry in confinement due to suffocation.
Peak Season Coverage
Increases coverage for a period of time; for example, during harvest when inventories may be high.
Crop and Livestock Insurance
A variety of federal crop and livestock insurance products can help protect you from loss of revenue due to specific covered events.
