Rich History

Ours is a story of vision, perseverance, a dedication to quality, and the overriding value of good business relationships. ProAg employees proudly cite their roots as one of the original companies in the crop insurance industry. We embrace, and employ, the technological advances and streamlined services necessary to give every agent and farmer real advantages. What started as a driven young man selling crop insurance from horseback in the 1920s has evolved into a visionary business dedicated to outstanding quality and performance in agriculture-related risk management.

Dependable Solutions

The ProAg business philosophy of superior service and a commitment to technology has brought slow and steady expansion resulting in a successful business for nearly a century. ProAg began processing business over the Internet in the mid 1990s. We have and will continue to embrace the advantages of computer technology and dedicate important resources to ensure our Underwriting and Loss Systems are the easiest and most efficient software packages in the industry. Our agents have live, real-time access to crucial information and policy reports at their fingertips. Our proven record of dependable, functional technology has made ProAg a pioneer in the industry.

Unique Position

ProAg writes Federal Crop Insurance (commonly referred to as MPCI), Crop Hail and Named Peril Insurance. These coverages are written for the American farmer utilizing the time-tested system of independent agents. Unlike many corporate insurance conglomerates, ProAg does not divert capital or expertise by entering other lines of insurance. We only write crop insurance. This unique position in the industry has allowed us to anticipate and meet the needs of our agents and farmers as the premier provider of crop insurance products and services within selected markets.

Superior Service

ProAg is dedicated to building strong and secure relationships. We believe long-term business partnerships with farmers, agents, and re-insurers (some of which span five decades) allow us to deliver a consistency of service unmatched in our industry. We value the large and small agent, as well as the family and corporate farmer. ProAg is a nimble company because our highly experienced management team allows us to make decisions quickly and offer solutions without delay.
