Crop Insurance Friday: Answering the Question, “Why?”
We often find ourselves wondering why we do things – including why should you buy crop insurance, and especially why should you handle it with Farm Credit, right? Ask any of our current customers and they could tell you, but since you’re here, allow me to fill you in on the reasons…
Why buy crop insurance?
Crop insurance is a risk management tool that is used to put a safety net under cash income. In times of low production and damaging weather such as drought, flood, hail and windstorms, crop insurance enables farm families to meet their financial obligations – both business and personal and helps ensure the survival of the farm business.
Why buy from Farm Credit?
No one knows agriculture like Farm Credit. When the Farm Service Agency stopped selling crop insurance in 1997, it became necessary for farmers to rely on private insurance companies for their crop insurance needs. Who better to fill that need than an ag expert like Farm Credit?
Today, we have full-time experienced crop insurance agents on staff. That’s their only job – crop insurance. You won’t find a more knowledgeable, helpful staff. They don’t just want to be your agent; they want to be a resource for you, a consultant on your team.
Farm Credit is committed to helping you meet your business goals. And risk management is just one step in that process.
So, to conclude…
Hopefully I answered that burning question of “why” that you keep asking yourself. Farm Credit is a great choice for your crop insurance needs and we look forward to working with you. To reach an agent and begin managing your crop risk today, give us a call at 888.339.3334.
