Rain and Hail

Traditions of Leadership Today, just as when the organization began operation as the Rain and Hail Insurance Bureau, we are a leader in developing sound insurance programs. Over the decades, our stability has enabled our team of professionals to focus its energies - first and foremost - on policyholder and agent needs. The first generation of Rain and Hail managers are still recognized as pioneers in the crop insurance industry. In addition to forming one of the nation's first risk management pools in 1919, they were largely responsible for establishing equitable adjusting and rating procedures. This is the groundwork of strength that led to the firm's 1981 reorganization as an employee-owned managing general agency. In 2010, Rain and Hail L.L.C. was acquired by Chubb.

PIC

Our mission is to be the leading worldwide supplier of genetic improvement to pork chain customers through innovative and outstanding genetic technology, health and services. A subsidiary of biotechnology leader Genus plc, PIC’s business is the genetic improvement of pigs. In the early 1960s, a small group of Oxford pig farmers, were concerned that the traditional purebred breeders were not producing the right pig for future markets. The farmers invited a group of scientists to devise a way of producing a better hybrid. Following their advice, they bought the best pigs they could find and began to improve them by a process of selection. PIC is now the international leader in the provision of continuous genetic improvement in swine breeding stock and in world-class technical support to the global pork supply chain. PIC combines quantitative analytics with leading-edge biotechnology to develop breeding stock that helps our customers maximize profitability. The company, a division of Genus plc, and founded in 1962, operates in 30 countries spanning 6 continents.
