How to get insurance coverage for a job you want to do as a goatherder
The goats insurance company that was the first to offer goats insurance to its employees was also the first company to offer goatherders coverage.
The goatherding business has grown over the past 10 years to include some of the country’s largest and most prominent companies, including Walmart, Target and Best Buy.
But goats aren’t just a popular pastime for a few hundred goats, said David Hughes, a goathunter who runs the company, GoatHunter Insurance.
They can also provide much needed income for many families.
Hughes says the goats insurance policy is for “the common person who doesn’t need goat insurance” and it covers the goat’s owner.
The policy only covers injuries that occur while working or riding the goats.
Hughes says goats are insured for up to a year, but the insurance company offers the policy at a reduced rate, which will reduce the risk of claims.
Huges said he started GoatHunter with his wife, who is a goat hunter.
The two work in the goat industry and have several goats under their care.
When he started, Hughes said the goat hunters insurance would cover just about everything a goat owner would need.
But after a couple of years, he said, the insurance started covering more and more things.
In 2016, Hughes started to get complaints from his customers.
He said he noticed that the goat hunter insurance policy would only cover the goats owner’s injuries, and would not cover damage done to the goats themselves.
Hughes said that’s when he realized that some goats owners were using the policy to cover the damage caused by their animals.
Hughens says it is a simple mistake to use the goats policy for the owner, but he does understand why the goats company would want to avoid paying for damage to the goat.
He also believes the insurance would be a better option for most people.
But the goat insurance company does not have to worry about getting goat damage claims, and Hughes said it was the right decision.
He expects to have the goats coverage in place by the end of this year.
