Rural Mutual Declares 5% Dividend for 2018 Farm Policyholders

For the third year in a row since Rural Mutual established the first-of-its-kind Farm Dividend Program, the Board of Directors declared a 5% dividend on all eligible farm policies to be paid in 2019.

Estimated $2.6 million to be paid out in 2019

Based on the company’s positive operating results, an estimated $2.6 million will be paid out.  Farmers will begin receiving dividend checks in late February.

“Wisconsin’s farms are one of the state’s most important assets and we are committed to helping protect them,” said Peter Pelizza, Executive Vice President and CEO of Rural Mutual. “We’re so pleased that our financial success enables us to give back to our farm policyholders.”

The Farm Dividend program is just one of the many ways Rural Mutual serves its farmers and reinforces its relationship with the Wisconsin Farm Bureau. Together we keep Wisconsin Strong!
