Farm Insurance Information
For Farmers in Kentucky
While farms need the standard types of insurance policies that other businesses need, such as property insurance and general liability coverage, they also need insurance that is specifically related to the business they run.
Some farms make all or most of their profits through the crops that they grow. When a disaster, such as a tornado, wildfire or flood strikes and the crops they depend on are devastated, crop insurance can reimburse them for the losses they face. Before buying crop insurance, it's vital that farmers submit an accurate representation of the planted acreage they have per unit. Should they underreport, they may not be reimbursed for all losses they could realistically experience.
Livestock insurance is a multifaceted type of coverage with several different policy options. For example, farm owners can buy coverage for specific activities such as their livestock's transit or for auction market coverage; they may buy coverage for specific animals such as poultry coverage or pasture and dairy cattle coverage; or they may buy mortality insurance for animals with an especially high value to the farm such as a stud.
Farm Equipment Insurance
It takes a lot of specialized equipment to run a farm. From tractors to irrigation equipment, trailers to combines, these complicated expensive machines are fundamental to a farm’s ability to operate properly, efficiently and successfully. Equipment insurance for the vehicles and machines on the farm will allow for reimbursement for certain losses and damages and can help keep you operational.
Workers Compensation Insurance
Farms that employ people should also look at workers compensation coverage. Without this protection, they will be responsible for paying the medical expenses and lost wages of employees who are injured at work.
Common Farm Insurance Questions:
What is Farm Insurance?
Farms are businesses just like any other. However, the success or failure of a production yield often means the success or failure the business. Since there are countless hazards that might come along at any moment to damage property, interrupt production and destroy products, farmers need the ability to recoup their financial losses under the circumstances. Tailored commercial insurance benefits will assist them throughout this process.
What Does Farm Insurance Cover?
There are many insurance options from which farmers can benefit. These include:
Farm Livestock Insurance: A loss to your animals could mean a loss of profit. Therefore, this coverage can help you recover the results.
Equine Insurance: Horses are often valuable both for farm operations and their market value. Therefore, when you breed or raise horses, a single loss might cost you a lot of money. This coverage can insure your horses against death, injuries and other hazards.
Farm Equipment Insurance: Should important assets like pumps, rakes, sprayers and other tools get damaged, then this coverage can help pay for those items.
Tractor Insurance: Standard equipment insurance often doesn’t cover tractors or other farm vehicles. You can buy separate coverage to protect these items against damage or other losses.
Farm Dwelling Insurance: If you live on your farm, then this policy can cover your home.
Farm Structures Insurance: This coverage insures barns, grain silos and other property.
Commercial Auto Insurance: Vehicles owned by the farm or used in its operations will need commercial auto insurance rather than personal auto insurance.
Farm Liability Insurance: Your operations might cause bodily injuries or property damage to various people, including your clients. This coverage can help you repay them for their losses.
Umbrella Insurance: Under standard liability insurance, there will be limits. However, if a claim exceeds these limits, then umbrella liability coverage can help cover remaining costs.
Workers’ Compensation Insurance: If you hire full- or part-time employees in your operation, then you will likely have to buy workers’ compensation. It will pay an employee supplementary income if work-related injuries or illnesses force me off the job.
Coverage can be customized to meet the needs of those who reside on their farms by insuring both their personal and commercial assets with a farm owners policy. Because of numerous industry regulations, you will face several coverage requirements based on your specific operating profile, as well.
What Will Farm Insurance Cost?
You must be able to maximize your production and minimize your financial liabilities in order to make your farm a success. Your insurance plays a critical part in this strategy, but you must keep it affordable in and of itself. You don’t want it to be a burden to your overhead expenses, and our goal is to ensure that you receive all the right benefits while still paying for them affordably.
