Farmers must keep their farm in prime working order to be able to turn a profit. Still, since even the most well-prepared farmer can’t prevent every type of hazard that might strike, it is important that they have a backup plan. Farm insurance is part of the security blanket you can build for yourself in case of hazardous occurrences on the property.
You should not have to bear sole responsibility of picking up the pieces of unexpected or unavoidable problems on your farm. With the help of your farm insurance, you can receive financial assistance with many of the costs of your recovery. The right policy can pay for multiple types of property damage and personal liability and property damage that might otherwise call your farm’s security into question.
General liability coverage (bodily injury, property damage, personal injury)
Business interruption insurance
Commercial auto insurance
Workers’ compensation insurance
Professional liability insurance
Products & completed operations insurance

Like crop insurance, livestock insurance can help reimburse farmers for the loss of their livestock. However, since livestock varies in use and purpose, several types of coverage might be necessary.
For example, when insuring poultry or cattle that you will eventually sell at market, you will need coverage for animals while they are on your property, in transit to and while at market. On the other hand, a high-value animal like a stud might remain on your property. However, it will need mortality insurance in case it dies before you can sell it.
Tractors, combines, trailers, irrigation equipment and other tools not only have significant value themselves, but any loss could put your productivity at risk. You will have to insure each of these items so that you can receive compensation in case of damage, theft or other losses.
The cost of your policy will depend on the risk your insurer assumes by covering you. This risk depends on your likelihood of filing a claim on your policy and causing the insurer to pay on your behalf. As a result, the higher your chances of having to file a hefty claim, the more you might pay for your policy. Several factors might influence your farm insurance portfolio’s costs, such as:
