Farmers Mutual Hail recognizes Shirley Top as top-producing agent
Shirley Top with Kozlowski Insurance Agency and Financial Services Inc. of Luverne has recently been recognized as a top-producing crop insurance agent for Farmers Mutual Hail Insurance Company (FMH).
FMH recognizes the top-producing agents in total premium each year.
Top has been recognized as placing 47th in the company's Top 50 Agents in Crop Hail Premium list.
In addition, Top ranked fifth in the state of Minnesota for combined Multi-Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) and Crop Hail premium in 2020 with FMH.
2022 will mark 35 years in the crop insurance business for Top. “I love working with farmers,” she said.
Top said the most important part of her job is working with clients, helping them understand their options, and assisting clients in weather and price-related claims.
“I also have to credit the amazing job our adjusters – especially FMH adjuster Brian Fick – did this year with the enormous number of acres hit with wind,” she added.
“In 2021 my farm clients had 23,792 acres protected with green snap and wind coverage. FMH adjusters did an amazing job getting out to the fields before and after the farmers harvested to determine percentage of loss, giving the farmers ample time to complete their fall tillage.”
