An agent says farmers should reevaluate their insurance because of rising repair and replacement costs.
Jeff White represents Rural Mutual Insurance in Menominee and Eau Claire, Wisconsin. He tells Brownfield a policy taken out a year or two ago might not meet the needs of the farm today. “Is my big dairy facility insured correctly? Do we have enough coverage limit on it should a catastrophe occur, because we’ve seen an increase in the cost of just the materials itself so with lumber and steel prices going up.”
