Did you know that the farming industry in Alberta is the second largest industry, second only to the oil industry?  Many farm policies are undervalued and don't have adequate coverages.  Protect yourself and your clients from unexpected and underinsured losses.

Distinctive products have been developed to provide the specialized coverages required for these exceptional enterprises.  Where Farm 101 - Introduction to Farm Insurance April 6, 2023 ends this session begins, and provides information related to intensive livestock operations, seed growing and handling facilities and others.  You will gain greater credibility with clients, be able to better understand and/or describe farm risks to underwriters and have a greater sense of how claims are settled for these types of exposures on farms.

You will gain a better understanding of:

  •  Dairy, Hog and Poultry (both meat and egg) operations, what they look like and how they operate
  • Heat Prostration for poultry risks - why the coverage is needed, but what can be done to mitigate the possibility of loss.
  • Power Interruption coverage for hog and poultry risks, and a variety of scenarios that are present on farms of this type
  • A discussion on Hutterite colonies and the multitude of exposures that exist and the differences between these farms and others
  • Organic Farming - What is it, and how does coverage apply to 'Organic' farming? What types of claims can arise?
  • Loss examples will illustrate how coverage will apply (or may not apply) during a claim event
