ArborOne Farm Credit part of Crop Insurance Discussions

Don Boice and Debbie Fowler of ArborOne Farm Credit attended a round-table discussion about the proposed changes to the federal crop insurance program Monday, March 22, 2010, in Washington DC. This meeting was organized by the Farm Credit Council, the trade organization for the Farm Credit System, and attended by Farm Credit crop insurance experts, representatives of the Risk Management Agency and members of the FCC.

Congress is considering making changes to the crop insurance program next year. This insurance is a crucial part of farmers’ risk management planning which makes it important to Farm Credit.

“We are at the table and making a difference,” said Don Boice, Chief Relationship Manager at ArborOne.

William Murpy of the Risk Management Agency was present and interested to hear Farm Credit representatives’ comments.

“This is the beginning of a well-respected and informative relationship with RMA,” Debbie Fowler, Crop Insurance expert with ArborOne.

Future meetings are planned for this group to continue the crop insurance discussions.

ArborOne Farm Credit is an agricultural and rural financing cooperative covering the twelve counties of the Pee Dee region in South Carolina and a member of the Farm Credit System, a national federation of lending cooperatives serving agriculture and rural America since 1916.
