Since 1995 I have been helping breeders by offering livestock mortality insurance. We are now thrilled to offer the products of Brit America Insurance. If you need to control the risk of your new herd bull or donor female, drop us a line, we can help insure that you sleep easy at night.
Livestock Mortality

Insurance coverage can protect you and your business from the financial loss associated with risk as an animal owner. There are many different types of insurance to consider when looking to protect your assets, and that is why Brit America is here to help you choose from our flexible options to customize the protection against risk and loss of your animals.


All Risks of Mortality is a type of insurance coverage that automatically covers all risks that the insurance contract does not explicitly exclude. The Brit America Livestock Mortality policy provides that security and peace of mind when owning livestock.


Specified Perils provides another option for your security against risk to owned livestock. Specific causes of loss are outlined in the policy,  so ask us how Specified Perils could be an alternative solution.

Have a veterinarian document the animal’s cause of death and identification.
