WHAT IS SHORT TERM INSURANCE?
Short-term Insurance is a contract between you and the insurer covering your assets in the case of damage or loss. The contract stipulates that the Insurer will pay you a set amount of money or will replace or repair your asset in the event of the damage or loss.
Whether small and independent or a major commercial operation, as a farmer you are exposed to risk. Your needs will be as unique as you and the challenges you face every day are. As agriculture becomes progressively more sophisticated, so do the complexities of protecting against the risks involved and farmers should rely more heavily on the professional analysis and insight of a trusted broker when it comes to protecting assets.
