Insurance needs for rural homes and agriculture

Understanding the risks we face and deciding how much insurance coverage to buy is challenging. Where we live — in an urban, suburban, or rural area — can make a difference.

Recently the Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) hosted a webinar on risks faced specifically by rural residents. It used criteria from rural insurance firms and government guidelines to ask some simple questions about damage, liability, and loss insurance that rural residents should consider each year. Scott Cotton, EDEN Chair-elect and University of Wyoming Area Educator in Agriculture and Natural Resources was the presenter.

Watch the recording to learn how to decide what’s covered, what needs to be covered and what happens if not covered. The webinar is short — just 35 minutes — and full of thought-provoking information.
