Agribusiness Conference Offers Opportunities to Grow More Than Vegetables

January 21, 2002

When agents and brokers think about expanding their book of business, agribusiness risks might not be the first thing that comes to mind. But it should. Agribusiness is more than insuring farms and ranches — it offers opportunities to insure for pollution, mechanical breakdown, trucking and transit, workers’ compensation, and livestock.

Presented by Insurance Skills Center, the 15th Annual Agribusiness Conference, March 21-22 in Sacramento presents the West Coast’s best opportunity to discover how to grow a book of business by covering agriculture risks.

Join Dr. Emmett J. Vaughan, CPCU, CLU, JRM, CPIW, and his team of industry experts for instruction on recent ISO policy form changes. Participants will learn about the new AAIS Agribusiness Output policy and its use in insuring up to 80 classes of agribusiness and farm risks. There will be a review of property exposures and endorsements, liability exposures and endorsements, farm auto and equipment, custom farming, animal mortality, equine insurance, the new ISO breakdown program, and much more.

New to this year’s conference will be breakout groups. Participants will be able to attend two breakout sessions on topics that are of interest to them including: dairy farms, cattle ranches and feedlots, wineries and vineyards, crop insurance, warehouse and processors, and pollution risks.

The conference is approved for 15 CE in Alaska, California, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington.
