Do you have your Pasture, Range and Forage Insurance?

The standard value is a rate determined by the Risk Management Agency for each and every county. Texas uses the rainfall index to help them decide the insurance coverage (rain data comes from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Climate Prediction Center data).
