In preparation of spring sales, we would prefer to have production done ASAP. If you haven’t already, please take the time to complete your 2021 production reports that were mailed in your crop binders last summer. Keep in mind that any loss units do not need to be filled out, they will automatically fill from the company. Same with appraisals. If you would like assistance in compiling your production, please let us know – We are here to help.
The agency monitors claims weekly if not daily to ensure a smooth process. If you have a question on a claim or need some assistance in finalizing your claim, please let us know we are here to help.
Please plan on attending one of our meetings across the state. No matter which meeting you attend, you are welcome at any of them. There will be important information, a chance to ask questions, and general comradery.
