Farmers Mutual Hail Insurance Co. announced it will expand into dairy farm coverage by offering the federal crop insurance product Dairy Revenue Protection beginning in July. The DRP program protects against losses in milk revenue caused by changes in market prices and production, giving dairy producers peace of mind when it comes to the challenge of selling milk at optimal prices, the West Des Moines-based insurer said in a press release. FMH President and CEO Ron Rutledge said he looks forward to bringing FMH’s reputation for quality service into the dairy sector. “There’s never been a more important time to protect dairy farmers and the industry than right now,” he said. “Products like DRP ensure America’s producers can continue to farm and operate into next year.” Producers interested in learning more about Dairy Revenue Protection can talk to their local FMH agent or visit
