Willis launches insurance program for the dairy industry
Willis Programs, a specialty business unit of Willis Group Holdings (NYSE: WSH), the global insurance broker, introduced a customized insurance solution for dairy operations.
Willis Programs serves independent commercial insurance brokers with over 30 unique insurance programs tailored for a variety of industries.
DairyProtectorSM is designed for dairy farms with cows producing raw milk for bulk sales. The program delivers a broad spectrum of coverage at competitive rates, in an all-in-one package including protection for Livestock Mortality, Automobile, Crime, Property, Inland Marine, Employee Benefits, Equipment Breakdown, Business Income, and Umbrella.
Willis has deep experience serving the agriculture sector and has drawn on its outstanding success in developing its DairyProtector Program. DairyProtector is underwritten by an A.M. Best 'A' rated insurance company and is available exclusively through independent insurance agents and brokers in select states.
Commenting on the program, Matt Sailor, DairyProtector Program Manager said, “As other carriers exit this market or tighten their underwriting approach to this class, we can offer brokers a long-term, stable solution for their clients. Our carrier partner for DairyProtector maintains strong capacity and flexibility in engineering coverage solutions, which we feel will position DairyProtector to become the premiere insurance solution for dairy risks.”
David Hampson, President & CEO of Willis Programs said, “DairyProtector illustrates Willis Programs’ dedication to offering highly effective solutions in specialized markets. We are pleased and honored to provide dairy farms across America with a program specifically designed for their insurance needs.”
