Introduction to Farm Insurance: A Two-Part Webinar

mai 28 - juin 4, 2024

New Brunswick’s agriculture sector is a key part of the provincial economy. Not only do these farms provide our food, but they also feed the provincial economy. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Aquaculture & Fisheries, the agri sector employs over 13,000 New Brunswickers and the value of food and beverage shipments exceed $1 billion!

While farms face many of the same risks as other businesses, they also have unique characteristics requiring a combination of coverages to address both the personal and business aspects of the risk. Join us for this two-part webinar to learn more about insuring farms.


Following this two-part webinar participants will understand the exposures to loss presented by farm risks and how farm policies are structured.

Following Part 1 of this webinar, you will be able to:
• Understand the variety of products grown and/or raised in the province
• Evaluate and explain the key differences between full time and hobby farms
• Describe the types of farm dwellings and outbuildings
• Understand basic farm building wordings
• Explain insurance rating methodology for farm outbuildings

Following Part 2 of this webinar, you will be able to:
• Evaluate the exposure to Equipment Breakdown losses faced by many farmers
• Describe the difference between types of farm equipment and how to insure them
• Review basic livestock coverage (please note: horse mortality insurance will not be covered)
