The following statement can be attributed to Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President and Rural Mutual Insurance Company President Jim Holte:
“This weekend’s weather events didn’t help our already burdened farmers. Much like last year’s late spring blizzard that took down farm buildings in northeastern Wisconsin, the same has happened in western Wisconsin.
As farmers were already handling the severe wind and snow, building collapses added even more stress and hardship.
If you are insured with Rural Mutual Insurance, you should know that the company is setting up and assigning claims to adjusters as they are submitted by our insured farmers. Rural Mutual adjusters will be in touch within 24 hours of a farmer submitting a claim and will set up a time to come view the damage. Farmers are encouraged to submit claims as soon as possible and to be specific about the location and extent of the damage. If you have questions about whether a loss is covered or how to deal with injured livestock, please contact your Rural Mutual agent for further guidance.
On behalf of Wisconsin Farm Bureau and Rural Mutual Insurance Company, I ask you keep our farmers in your thoughts and prayers as they dig out and continue caring for their families, farms and livestock to the best of their ability.”
