You were probably told that Farm Bureau was the "voice of agriculture" and that this organization "would take care of your needs." You also were probably told that when you bought their hail insurance "you v/ould save money.' " The hail rates for the last two years have been higher than the rates charged by the agents listed below. On some crops in many areas, such as beans, their rates have been a great deal higher than what the farmer could have purchased from these agents. You were likely told when you bought their car insurance that "you would save money." Do you know that in a good many instances Farm Bureau car insurance is running higher for a full coverage policy than in companies represented by the following agents ? Besides there is no policy fee; nor organization membership to pay every year. Further when you place your insurance with these agents you get a National Standard policy from stable, conservative, sound companies. Why don't you stop in and talk it over with one of the insurance men listed below.
