ARU is owned by poultry insurance veterans. We have been in the business long enough to see many companies try and fail (miserably) in the poultry farm insurance segment. This constant churning of carriers entering and exiting the market presents a terrible situation for brokers and your customers. ARU offers a consistent, sustainable solution to this age-old problem. With our poultry-centric proprietary underwriting and loss control methodologies, we help the poultry farmers identify risk exposures and minimize exposure to losses, we help brokers by providing a stable market, and we help our American partner insurance carriers by producing a profitable book of business.

These are vital distinctions from our competitors in the national poultry space, who frequently burn through insurance carriers and are forced to resort to offering policies backed by overseas risk syndicates. ARU is the right choice for brokers seeking a superior and stable long term solution for poultry accounts.


There are thousands and thousands of Contract Poultry Farmers out there, just waiting to hear from YOU!

This market has long been woefully under-served and under-appreciated by the legacy insurance providers in this space. In fact, many of the traditional “farm” carriers have completely abandoned focus on farms; all these carriers really care about nowadays is life insurance. Contract Poultry Farmers represent a vast business opportunity for insurance producers, and the best part is that the market continues to grow — hundreds of new poultry houses are under construction right now.
