I don’t know about you, but insurance coverage for our show steers and heifers is something that has crossed my mind on numerous occasions. As we gear up to travel to Des Moines for the Maine Anjou Jr. Nationals, I am reminded that sometimes accidents happen and coverage is something that we need to consider.
But where do we start?
How much is it going to cost?
Are there several options to choose from?
Do I need to consider coverage for our whole herd?
These questions and more were answered for me as I discussed the in’s and out’s of livestock insurance with Kassie Montford, a livestock insurance specialist from Texas. I was so pleased to get so many of my questions answered and I know this information will be very helpful for you as well.
Whether you’re dragging around your county fair steer, or if you’ve got a string of breeding heifers that you plan to take to national shows, insurance is something that all of us should at least look into. It’s important to be knowledgeable about your options and recognize your risk.
