Highlight of CLN activity: CKP Assurance
You insure your belongings, your vehicles, your boats and your life, so why not provide drought protection on your ranch? CKP Insurance exclusively offers pasture, range and forage insurance and was created to help protect your operation against the risk of loss of forage produced for grazing or harvested for hay, resulting in increased feed costs. . CKP Insurance insures ranches and farms across the country, including the Navajo Nation, the Diamond A Ranches, and several other tribal ranch lands in the Southwest.
CKP Insurance enjoys such confidence in the industry, that 12x Entrepreneur In Stock of the Year, Chad Berger has them on his sponsorship team. Talk about a perfect partnership! Plus, they are a leader in giving back to the communities they support. A good example is the Navajo County Fair and Rodeo, where they buy several of the FFA animals that go up for auction in order to support the children who raise them. One thing we love to see in the businesses we support is the aspect of giving back and CKP Insurance is ticking the box for that.
Supporting Navajo Nation Agriculture
You may be wondering what insurance has to do with the continued development of the Navajo Nation’s agricultural sector. Well, that has a lot to do with it! Thanks to Navajo Nation partner CKP Insurance, the Navajo Nation has received several million dollars in recent years for its pasture and forage insurance policy. What is amazing about this is the fact that the money is directly reinvested in the agricultural programs of the Navajo Nation. Assisting with the disbursement of these funds, the Agricultural Infrastructure Fund was established to use any remaining indemnity payments in excess of the amount needed to secure insurance premiums for the following crop year to finance and implement agricultural infrastructure projects on the Navajo Nation. In addition to the AIF, the Livestock Management Incentive Program is designed to assist Navajo pastoralists during the ongoing drought who use best management practices and to encourage pastoralists to reduce and maintain their numbers. herds at permitted levels.
Insurance of pastures, rangelands and fodder
A service of the USDA Risk Management Agency
But what about the insurance they offer? Let’s dive in! The Risk Management Agency’s (RMA) Pasture, Range and Forage (PRF) Insurance Program is designed to provide insurance coverage on your pasture, range or acres of forage. This innovative program is based on precipitation using the rain index. This program is designed to give you the opportunity to purchase insurance against loss of forage produced for pasture or harvested for hay, which leads to increased costs of feed, destocking, depopulation or other actions.
What are the benefits?
- The program is very affordable because the government subsidizes 51 to 59% of the premium.
- Premiums are not due before October 1 of the crop year.
- There are no claim forms.
- No fitter is needed. Your claims are paid automatically based on NOAA CPC data.
How it works?
When you purchase coverage under this program, you are protected against loss due to lack of rain. Payment for losses is determined on the basis of the Rainfall Index, which is a comprehensive data set of rainfall amounts across the country. Since compensation is not calculated based on actual agricultural production, claims can be processed automatically without the need for claims adjusters.
Participation in this program is very easy. With the help of a Trusted Risk Advisor, you will choose the grids in which your eligible land resides. You then choose two or more separate index intervals during which precipitation is important for your operation. For each grid you chose to cover, the actual precipitation amounts are compared to the trigger grid indices. If any of the grids had rainfall below the trigger index, you may receive compensation.
