Snow's bill protecting Hoosier grain farmers now law

Posted by: Allison Vanatsky  | Wednesday, May 12, 2021

STATEHOUSE (May 12, 2021) – Gov. Eric Holcomb recently signed legislation authored by State Rep. Craig Snow (R-Warsaw) to protect Indiana's grain farmers from catastrophic financial losses when licensed grain buyers fail.

The Indiana Grain Indemnity Fund protects Hoosier grain farmers from catastrophic financial losses when state-licensed grain buyers, grain banks or warehouses fail. Snow said grain farmers typically store their harvests in these licensed warehouses and enter deferred pricing agreements with buyers to determine a selling price at a later date. In the event of a warehouse failure, the fund covers 100% of contracted stored grain and 80% of other grain transactions for up to 15 months prior to the date of failure. The fund is supported by farmers who pay a 0.2% premium on the gross value of all grain marketed to licensed grain buyers in Indiana.
