Risk Management

Crop Insurance is a key component to managing risk for your farm or ranch. The Federal Crop Insurance Program, introduced in the 1930’s, protects farmers across the country from loss of harvest or revenue. Farming is always unpredictable, but crop insurance can guarantee some level of revenue. First State Bank & Trust and our licensed insurance agents work closely with highly rated insurers to provide you with the best service and risk management possible.

Please contact Bryce Loyd at (785) 741-0161 for more information. Bryce is your knowledgeable, responsive crop insurance expert.

Ag Partners

Farm Service Agency - We partner with our local Farm Service Agency (FSA) to provide farmers and ranchers the opportunity to start, expand or strengthen family farming and ranching operations utilizing the many useful FSA programs. In addition to traditional Ag producers, there are targeted FSA programs for beginning farmers, minority farmers and women producers.
