Still Looking for a PRF Partner?

If you are not receiving regular updates on your PRF policy, or if you’re still in the process of learning whether the Pasture, Rangeland, Forage program will work for your operation, we have you covered. No policy? No problem! Only with AgRisk Advisors. When you call us for a coverage example, we will want to get to know you to create a customized example specific to your operation. As risk managers, this helps us ensure your coverage example is as accurate as possible to make informed decisions when you are ready. In addition, our daily-updated Rainfall Index reports make it easy to stay up-to-date and in the know!

One of the most critical decision factors we use to help producers understand whether the Pasture, Rangeland, Forage insurance program will effectively manage your risk is RangeCalc. Don’t be fooled by other agencies touting similar software – these are copycat calculators used to sell you on the benefits of PRF. At AgRisk Advisors, we use only RangeCalc, the gold standard decision tool we’ve helped develop since 2006, to analyze and interpret Rainfall Index data. Your AgRisk Advisor utilizes RangeCalc to provide transparency and highlight both the potential benefits and drawbacks of PRF for your operation, something no other agents can claim.

The Index operates from an average using records kept continuously since 1948, but each Rainfall Index Grid has separate and distinct precipitation calculations in its history. Due to the vast amount of data, the Rainfall Index utilized by the Pasture, Rangeland, Forage program can be confusing, especially when determining how it relates to your operation. Our advisors can help you understand how to use the historical data available and make an informed decision for your operation.

The question, “how much precipitation is considered normal for this Grid?” is frequently asked when determining how an individual’s grid correlates with a producer’s understanding of their area and their area’s weather patterns. Fortunately, AgRisk Advisors has the answer and can identify the Rainfall Index average by Grid and Interval using RangeCalc. If the information matches up with your experience, there’s a good chance PRF insurance could be an effective tool to manage the risk of poor precipitation. Your AgRisk Advisor will also be sure to point out the National Weather Service stations potentially being used for your Grid’s data, helping you decide whether it will accurately reflect your operation’s risk.

Our exclusive Rainfall Index analysis shows you a glimpse of how the current Interval is tracking for your Coverage Example. In addition, the daily precipitation tables can help you identify the specific days the Index calculated moisture. Access, transparency, and understanding are the AgRisk Advisors advantage. We want to share all of this with you and more, so remember, whether you still need a Coverage Example or aren’t satisfied with your current agent, be sure to connect with an AgRisk Advisor and learn more today!
