Given the massive delays and lack of planting progress to-date, a free informational meeting will be held on Thursday May 30, 2019 at 1:00PM in the Cass County 4-H Community Center at the Cass County 4-H Fairgrounds. Indiana claims supervisor Sharon Shock with Great American Insurance will discuss the details on the Prevented Planting provisions for crop insurance. Additionally, agents from Dick Sims Crop Insurance will be on hand for questions and Mike Silver of Kokomo Grain, will provide market comments and offer insights into how to capitalize on summer weather market rallies. Local Farm Service Agency (FSA) personnel will also be in attendance to address the latest directives they have received on these or related topics. All are welcome to attend.
