He is the owner and operator of Flying J Enterprises, a calf/cattle operation in Ukiah, Oregon. In his 30 years of ranching, insurance wasn't always a risk management strategy. Karl worked with his crop insurance agent to determine when timely rain would affect his operation's profitability. "If we have good rain in late August, our cattle's gain is really good. But when you don't have rain and the land is all dried up, our gains are terrible. So, I bought PRF insurance for this time of year." "There's a lot of insurance out there for wheat, grains and crops, but there hasn't been much for cow/calf crop insurance until now," said Karl. "It's a new tool for the toolbox and I was very happy with it." Learn More Contact a local crop insurance agent
