Insurance protection, not just for crop farmers

Photo by Amanda NolzPatty DeZeeuw, agent with D & D Crop Service, encourages both farmers and ranchers to take advantage of insurance programs to protect against losses.

With the over-abundance of rain crossing the Plains, it’s a sure bet many crop farmers will have to rely on their insurance to cover their losses, especially in places of extreme flooding, as experienced in places like Aberdeen and Mitchell, SD. And, not only are the crops in standing water, but so are many of the cattle, as low pastures have been drowned out.

These conditions can prove difficult to raise calves, get the haying done and prepare for fall weaning, but Patty DeZeeuw, an agent with D & D Crop Service assures producers there are ways to manage farm risk, and the options aren’t just for row crop farmers.

“Nobody likes insurance, but everybody needs it,” said DeZeeuw. “There are multiple levels of crop insurance for folks to consider, covering everything from droughts to flooding, bugs to fire and even wildlife. Insurance can also be obtained to protect against equipment damage. It’s important to cover our income-producing aspects of the job, and that includes the equipment needed to get the job done.”
