Farm Insurance 101: Insuring Your Farm’s Mobile Equipment

Farm personal property blanket coverage is designed to protect movable assets and equipment on the farm. It provides coverage for a wide range of personal property items such as tools, machinery, livestock, supplies, and other farm-related items. Rather than insuring each item individually, blanket coverage allows farmers to insure their overall inventory under a single limit.

Here are a few examples of claims scenarios that could be covered under farm personal property blanket coverage:

Equipment damage: If a farmer’s combine harvester is damaged due to a fire or accident, the insurance policy could cover the cost of repairs or provide compensation for the loss of the equipment. This can be crucial in minimizing financial losses and enabling the farmer to replace or repair the damaged equipment quickly.

Livestock loss: In the unfortunate event of a natural disaster resulting in the death of farm animals, blanket coverage can provide compensation for the loss. For example, if a farmer’s herd of cattle is affected by drowning, electrocution, animal attacks, or falling objects, the policy could cover the monetary value of the lost livestock.

Theft or vandalism: If farm equipment, tools, or other personal property items are stolen or vandalized, the blanket coverage policy could reimburse the farmer for the value of the stolen or damaged items. This can help farmers recover financially and replace the stolen or damaged property promptly.

It’s important to carefully review insurance policies and consult an insurance agent to understand the specific coverage details, exclusions, deductibles, and limits associated with farm personal property blanket coverage.
