Farms

​​​​​Property, health, worker's compensation, and disability income insurance are all important for Wisconsin farmers.

​​Last Updated: April 5​, 2020

Wisconsin is home to nearly 65,000 farms; 7,000 of these are dairy farms – more than any other state. That adds up to approximately 1.28 million cows. Wisconsin also ranks first in the nation in the production of cheese, cranberries, ginseng, corn for silage, and ​snap beans for processing. 

Farms and farm families have unique ins​urance needs. 

  • Property Insurance can provide coverage for the str​uctures on your farm such as your home and barn, along with your farm equipment, machinery, livestock, and farm products.

  • Health Insurance provides coverage for the medical treatment of sicknesses and injuries. It does not generally provide coverage for work-related injuries. 

  • Worker's Compensation Insurance provides coverage for work-related injuries including medical treatment and lost wages.

  • Disability Income Insurance provides coverage for lost wages because of a short-term or long-term illness or injury. Farmers may purchase disability income insurance for themselves and their employees.
