Review insurance while waiting for harvest


An insurance expert says farmers should consider reviewing their coverage before the busy harvest season.

Autumn Schlieckau with Rural Mutual Insurance in Wisconsin says the slower-than-usual time between fieldwork and harvest is a good time to see if insurance policies need to be updated. “A good thing to keep in mind during your slower months is to contact your agents, do your renewals, update them on any equipment you’ve sold, or bought, just to make sure everything is properly covered and that way, you’re prepared for fall time.”

Schlieckau tells Brownfield farmers might not realize how much today’s replacement costs have changed, and what that means for their insurance.
