National Agriculture Day is honoring Agriculture THIS month & all of us here at KSEN enjoy helping show our appreciation for our Ag Producers. The theme for National Ag Day this year is: “Agriculture; 365 Sunrises & 7 Billion Mouths to Feed.” I blogged earlier this week on the Montana Hail Board & promised to get back to you with more on the Montana State Hail Insurance program. This program was created to provide basic hail insurance coverage on any crop grown in our state & is self-supporting. The 5 member board consists of Commissioner of Insurance Monica Lindeen, Agriculture Department Director Ron de Yong, Chair Gary “Precipitation” Gollehon, & producers Trudy Lass Skari & Jim Schillinger. A reserve fund is maintained to provide security for the programs financial responsibilities. For more information about state hail insurance, please contact the Montana Department of Agriculture’s hail program at 406 444 2402. The Montana Department of Agriculture’s mission is to protect producers & consumers, & to enhance & develop agriculture & allied industries.
