Episode 94: Crop & Forage Insurance 101 w/David Van Deynze

In this week’s episode “Crop & Forage Insurance 101,” Tracy speaks with David Van Deynze from Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC).

As part of the risk management series on The Impact Farming Show, we invited David to share more about both topics with our producers. In this interview, we review the different types of crop insurance programs offered, qualifying crops, costs, and coverage types/levels, claim process and stipulations, and the adoption rates here in Manitoba and other provinces.

After reviewing any misunderstood parts of the crop insurance program, David and Tracy move onto answering the same questions for the forage insurance programs, which seem to have less traction and adoption with cattle producers than the crop insurance programs do with crop producers.

Are you are a crop or cattle producer? If so, this episode is for you.
