As we all know the outbreak of COVID-19 has created many challenges for poultry producers and in many cases disrupted standard operations. Business Interruption Insurance is something that is front and center for many companies right now, and from all the news out there it appears in most cases that business interruption coverage is not going to respond to this pandemic.

Ross Milne, risk management consultant with Cottingham and Butler Insurance Services, Food and Ag Practice gives insight into what poultry producers should expect from an insurance standpoint because of the pandemic.

Financial loss, changes to worker compensation policies and other risk management topics relating to poultry producer insurance are all among the important subjects Milne discusses, especially as processing plants continue to experience shutdowns.

Milne also talks about cyber issues and how the large work-from-home environment has created a feeding ground for hackers and fraudsters taking advantage of the situation.
