and provides information related to intensive livestock operations, seed growing
and handling facilities, and others. You will learn how to recognize the
different business interruption needs of complex farm risks to better counsel
and protect client's income losses when faced with a significant loss. You
will learn more Boiler and Machinery coverages and how it can apply to a
wide variety of farm types in order to convey both the exposure to farm clients
and suggest a way to insure it. You'll 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.
This seminar will be of
interest to brokers, underwriters and claims staff not yet familiar or
comfortable with these types of farms and farm products.

growing/handling business operate and what types of risk do they bring?
