While attempting to build a fence on an old rubbish dump site, Jerome Wenzlick found his wooden fenceposts keep breaking as he tried to ram them through all the waste plastic in the ground.

Closed for business
When Kaikōura’s Hunting and Fishing store was hit by the 2016 earthquake, the damage was devastating.
But owner Anton Evans was thankful he’d taken FMG’s advice to double his Business Interruption cover. Watch as Anton shares his story and explains what a difference some good advice can make.
An unexpected break
When Murray Bell came a cropper on his farm bike and badly damaged his shoulder, looking after his 360 hectare sheep and beef farm on his own was impossible.
Luckily he’d taken FMG’s advice and covered himself for this kind of thing. Watch to see how this Fairlie farmer got through it all and the difference our advice made.
It’s not every day (or night) that you expect one of your cows to be hit by a passing car. But that’s exactly what happened in front of Dave and Wendy’s Mātauri Bay dairy farm.
The young driver who hit the cow wasn’t insured – but Dave and Wendy chose to cover him through their own FMG insurance.
When you’re milking 900 cows a day, having your shed suddenly taken out by an earthquake has a massive impact on your business.
Mark Hislop managed to get through it all thanks to the cover he’d put in place with FMG. Cover that saved him over $200,000 in lost earnings.
