Loss of Use Coverage
We know your equipment isn’t cheap, and we also know how important it is to the success of your operations. Having a successful farm operation means having equipment available in proper working conditions. Loss of Use coverage will reimburse the costs to rent a replacement if you cannot use your equipment due to an insured peril/incident.
Commodity/ Input Coverage
Whether it’s your grains, oil seeds, pulse crops or feed and fodder, these commodities are essential to your farm’s income. Insuring them can save you from experiencing a significant financial setback in a claim. Commodity coverage can help protect you from an unexpected financial loss due to an insured peril.
Input coverage is for assets such as fertilizer, chemicals, and seeds that are essential to the success of your crops and your entire operation. In a claim like a fire, replacing these inputs could be pricey. With Input Coverage in place, your policy would respond so you won’t have to pay out of pocket.

Volunteer Fire Fighting Coverage (VFF)
Depending on your location, multiple voluntary firefighting departments may respond if a fire occurs on your land. Every voluntary fire department will send an invoice if they are called to help put out the fire on your land. Each department’s rates may differ, and you could see anywhere from $900 to $1200 charged as an hourly fee. It’s always important to contact your local RM or Municipal Office to find out if your taxes cover these charges or add some additional coverage to your policy.
Adding Voluntary Firefighting to your policy will ensure you are financially supported if you receive a hefty bill after the fire’s put out.
