What an honor to have heard Colonel Nicole Malachowski share her inspirational message today at the 2019 Crop Insurance Industry Annual Convention. Colonel Malachowski is a 21-year combat veteran of the United States Air Force and was the first female Thunderbird pilot. Nicole has forged a successful path through immense cultural changes in the military as well as significant adversity in her personal life.
Her message of pushing the envelope with courage, trust and vulnerability moved the whole audience, including our President and CEO, Kendall Jones. There were so many high points to the conversation, but we choose to leave you with this one. "You build trust by being trustworthy." Colonel Malachowski, thank you for your service and taking the time to inspire us all today!

Martin Barbre, the administrator of the USDA’s Risk Management Agency, told the crop insurance industry on Monday that agents can discuss crop insurance for hemp with farmers who are growing it, but must tell them there is no coverage at the present time.
“If someone is growing industrial hemp, the agent can talk to them, but at present, there is no coverage for hemp. We are working on it. It takes time; there is an entire process we have got to go through,” Barbre said at the meeting.
Read on for more information on why RMA is waiting on other portions of the government to finish their hemp regulations, the new Multi-County Enterprise Unit (MCEU), Dairy Revenue Protection and more on the sound fiduciary use of taxpayer monies.
Our offices are closed on Monday in celebration of the President’s Day holiday. President’s Day originally fell on George Washington’s birthday, February 22nd. In 1968 the “Uniform Monday Holiday Act” was passed, moving it to the third Monday of February. Today we celebrate the lives of all American presidents. ProAg will return to normal business hours on Tuesday, February 19th.
This week our California adjusters met at our Clovis, CA regional office for additional training on our in-the-field adjusting system. We continue to train so we can provide industry-leading claims response time. Shout out to Derek E. for snapping this photo for us!
