Poultry Coverage

Insurance to Protect
Your Poultry Investment

There are many risks in the poultry business. Extreme weather is just one condition that could lead to significant poultry losses. So it is important to protect the investment you’ve made in your poultry operation with the right insurance solutions.
The Hartford’s Poultry Insurance Program can help – with flexible coverage that can be tailored to the risks that could threaten the future of your business.

Poultry Insurance Program

Our poultry insurance program provides broad perils coverage for direct physical damage to covered poultry resulting in death. It also includes coverage for:

  • Debris removal
  • Covered poultry in the custody of a common or contract carrier
  • Covered poultry on your vehicles
  • Fire department service charges
  • Newly acquired locations

Additional Coverage

You can customize your coverage with the following options:



Poultry Power Interruption and Mechanical Breakdown Coverage Adds Power Interruption and Mechanical Breakdown to the Poultry Coverage as Covered Causes of Loss where the failure of a building’s ventilating equipment is caused by the interruption of power or a mechanical breakdown – resulting in the death of covered poultry.
Poultry Manual Start Back-Up Generator System Amends the Poultry Power Interruption and Mechanical Breakdown Coverage to allow a manual start back-up generator system in place of the normally required automatic start back-up generator system.
Loss of Egg Income Coverage Adds coverage for the loss of egg income to the Poultry Coverage where the loss of income is caused by the suspension of egg production. The suspension of egg production must result from the covered loss of covered poultry.
Loss of Income from Meat Birds Coverage Amends the Poultry Coverage with loss of income coverage for meat birds described in a tentative placement schedule. The loss of income must result from the covered loss of the described meat birds. Coverage for the loss of income resulting from the inability to place covered meat birds due to a building’s destruction by a specified cause of loss is also included.
