Recent Wisconsin court decisions have placed farm liability insurance in the spotlight—and have underscored the importance of dairy farmers and all livestock producers understanding the changing insurance landscape.

To keep dairy farmers abreast of the recent court decisions, their impact on their dairies’ livelihood, and what farm liability insurance policies may and may not cover, a special edition webinar is being offered by the Professional Dairy Producers®.

The PDPW Special Edition Webinar, “Environmental Insurance: If Pollution Becomes a Liability,” will be presented live on Wednesday, Nov. 4, from noon to 1 p.m., with the recorded session available at the listener’s convenience.

Leading the 60-minute PDPW Special Edition Webinar will be environmental risk management specialists David Dybdahl, who served on the EPA’s Contractor Indemnification Technical Review Panel, and Harrison Scheider, a wholesale environmental insurance broker.

Dybdahl and Scheider will delve into discussions about bacteria, nitrates and manure and the all-important question: “Is manure from my dairy a pollutant?”. The two will also outline common uninsured environmental loss exposures that can be present on a dairy and address how to lessen these new risks.

The webinar’s goal is to arm today’s livestock producers with the latest information so they can manage with confidence while protecting their operation and livelihood.

The webinar is open to all dairy producers, farmers and ranchers. Pre-registration by Wednesday, Oct. 28, is required. Pre-registration allows participants to watch the session live on Wednesday, Nov. 4, at noon to 1 p.m. CST or watch the recorded session at their convenience. One paid registration gives as many people as can gather around a computer access to this important information.
