State Hail Program
The Montana State Hail Program will be hosting visits with producers on hail insurance at the end of May. If you aren’t familiar with the Hail Program it began over 100 years ago to provide basic hail insurance to producers after private companies would not cover some of the counties in Montana.
Staff from the State Hail Program will be visiting areas of the state this spring. We will be available to sell you a current hail policy and to answer any questions or concerns Montana producers have about the state hail program.
