Wiener earns Farm Certified Agency designation
Benjamin Wiener of Midwest United Insurance of Marshall successfully completed a series of educational courses and has achieved the On Your FarmSM Certified Agency designation from Nationwide Agribusiness Insurance Company. Completing the rigorous training program means farmers and ranchers can depend on an On Your Farm Certified agent to understand their farming operations, provide basic risk assessment that can help reduce expenses, educate them about exposures, match the correct coverages to meet their needs, and provide professional, knowledgeable service.
The designation is intended to help farm and ranch customers recognize agents who make a commitment to understanding the complex risks faced by the agriculture industry. Only agents who successfully complete the program will be awarded the designation, and agents must re-certify every three years.
