Crop Insurance Friday: Meet Our Department

24533 MAFC Crop Insurance Blog icon-2-13by: Kathi Levan, crop insurance manager


You know the old saying – if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.  And as farmers, you know nothing could be truer when it comes to your farming operation.  Planting crops is a risky proposition. You plan for the seed and fertilizer costs, plan when to put the crops in the ground and plan when to protect the plants. You work long hours … and then hope for the best.


Risk management is a factor that all farmers face, but crop insurance could be your golden answer.  Over the past year, we have expanded our crop insurance department and are excited for new changes and servicing territories.  Let us kick off this series by introducing you to our crop insurance department:
