Farm Insurance Information
Farming is a rewarding and prosperous field of work, but it comes with various risks and potential hardships. From environmental disasters, bad storms, wild animals and other accidents, farmers and ranchers need reliable and comprehensive insurance.
Bob Putnam Agency provides genuine customer service and affordable insurance for farmers and ranchers.
Farm Insurance Coverages We Offer
Coverages we offer for farmers and ranchers include:
Farms operate utilizing a lot of expensive machinery between tractors, combines, field equipment, planters and more. If your farm equipment is lost or damaged, farm equipment coverage can help pay for replacements or repairs. This insurance covers against damage caused by fire, wind, hail, explosions, lightning, smoke, theft and vandalism.
Farm products provides coverage for stored products such as feed, grain and seed. If these products are damaged or destroyed, farm products coverage will help compensate for replacements.
Ranches and many farms own and use livestock to make money in some capacity, such as breeding, working, showing or obtaining products. Unfortunately, your livestock isn’t always safe. Dangers and disease can threaten the health of your critical livestock. Animals like horses are expensive, as well, and replacing them out of pocket can be difficult.
Livestock insurance provides compensation if your livestock is killed due to bad storms, environmental disasters, accidents in transit and more. Animals that are considered livestock include cattle, pigs, bison, buffalo, horses, emus, goats and sheep.
Farm Liability Insurance
General liability for a farm is critical. Farms can be hazardous for visitors, especially those who are unused to stepping food on a farm. Farm liability insurance provides coverage for bodily injuries and property damage someone else may suffer on your farm’s property. If one of your horses kicks a guest, for example, farm liability can help pay the victim’s medical bills and protect your farm against a lawsuit regarding the accident.
Crop insurance provides compensation for crops that are damaged or destroyed due to fire, wind, hail, theft, vandalism and more. This insurance generally must be purchased before crops are planted.
If your farm employs workers, you may also need workers compensation insurance
