Farm Insurance for Australian Farmers
Running and operating farms is becoming more and more competitive. With revenue under pressure, unexpected losses arising from Fire, Storm, Impact or Theft can cause hardship.
Insurance is a very simple way of reducing your risk and transferring this risk from yourself to the insurer at a pre-agreed cost. Farm insurance is provided generally in a Farm Insurance Package. This is a combination of covers which are selected individually, and will typically cover
- Farm property — including buildings and contents
- Hay, grain and livestock
- Farm machinery — including theft
- Fencing and machinery and livestock – Fire
- Domestic property and contents
- Motor — for farm and personal vehicles
- Farm working dogs
- Business interruption
- Business liability
- Road transit
Due to the wide choice of insurances available, a deliberate decision should be made to focus on what is the more important insurances to have.
