Livestock dealers have a highly specialized and important role when it comes to the business of buying or selling cattle as a principal or as an agent. They represent different companies to sell products and services to businesses and other organizations and provide accurate information as required. Livestock dealers have to raise or purchase livestock from individual producers and arrange for sales and trucking to ranches, farms, feedlots and more.
In the livestock dealer business, it’s important that your business has the right protection against claims, injury, damage as well as liability, especially because dealers must follow strict government guidelines and ensure the best interest of livestock producers and others. While livestock dealers arrange for the buying, selling and transportation of various livestock for individuals and companies, any accidents can be costly.
With livestock insurance from ALIGNED, livestock dealers can protect their business against risks and costs of liability and litigation.
Why is Livestock Dealer Insurance Important?
Even the best and most experienced livestock dealers can be subject to unexpected mishaps. But when you’re performing your business operations, you don’t want to be caught off guard without appropriate livestock dealer insurance in the event of an accident.
- Livestock that you buy or sell to individuals and companies could succumb to disease or injury.
- Individuals or businesses could claim dissatisfaction with your services, false advertising, or other claims that result in financial repercussions or litigation.
- Arranging for transportation and trucking of livestock to ranches, farms, feedlots, and more could result in an accident on the road along the way.
Regardless of when, why, where and how unexpected events happen, the resulting financial loss can be substantial. With the right livestock dealer insurance policy from ALIGNED, livestock dealers can move their business forward with confidence.
