What is Livestock Insurance?

An insurance policy providing coverage for losses due to the death or injury of one's livestock. Livestock insurance generally covers accidents, acts of God, thefts and so forth. It usually excludes illegal acts, confiscation, and quarantines.
We know livestock rearing varies greatly in size, type and needs. With that in mind, we offer customizable insurance solutions for livestock farming, tailored to each operation, whether it involves dairy cattle, beef cattle, poultry, pigs, sheep or goats.
What's in it for you?
  • The insured farm will have greater access to agriculture credit since the policy document will be accepted by financing institutions as an alternative form of security.
  • You get to have greater access to livestock improvement loans.
  • In the event of a loss of livestock brought through a finance facility, both the insured and the financing institution are protected since the insurer pays for the loss.

How does it work?

It applies to an individual, or herd-specific coverage to your animals. These animals can be anything from cattle to small ruminants (pigs, Rabbits, poultry) — it makes no difference. Your farm will need to have a secure footing on operations to avoid potential accidents and diseases that could befall the livestock.

This is a cover against losses due to accidental death, diseases of terminal nature, emergency slaughter on the advice of a recognized veterinary surgeon, and theft of livestock in raising units or paddocks.
