Cattle and other livestock face mortality risks caused by accidents, sickness and disease. There are blanket coverages that apply to most livestock and poultry.
The starting point for your operation will likely be farm or farm operations coverage and a limited animal mortality policy. Normally, these can be combined into a farm package that will protect your facilities, structures and your livestock or poultry in the event of death caused by accident or injury. Some insurers may include a more comprehensive animal mortality policy that includes sickness and disease or policy options for a specialized type of animal.
