El Niño and Mid-Canterbury

El Nino weather patterns have led to dry conditions and in some areas drought has been declared. We are encouraging rural New Zealand to seek help if they need and prepare for the next few months. There are a range of services available to support you practically, financially, mentally, and help you maintain the welfare of your livestock.

It is so easy to make contact with our FMG rep when I need a question answered. We don’t have to wait days for a reply. That is called service to a customer

Coming a cropper

Rachel and Brian Leadley have spent 30 years growing in the Canterbury region and the strength of the Leadley’s operation is Brian’s ability to get on and get things done. But in the process of considering Life & Health cover they questioned ‘What would happen if Brian couldn’t operate a tool or work full time?’ and more than a decade later when Brian injured his hand, they were able to focus on recovery and get in people to get the job done, thanks to FMG's Life & Health cover.

“Brian’s an even bigger asset, there’s no way we wouldn’t insure him.”
