Crop Insurance Is Vital to Montana’s Agricultural Sector

“If we didn’t have federal crop insurance, some farmers would have failed and many others would have suffered crippling losses like in the 30s.  The federal government stepped in because they realized that if we couldn’t keep people on the farms, we couldn’t feed the nation.  This is about national security.” – Bing Von Bergen, Moccasin, Montana
