Samuel Rose runs a 150ac farm with 250 cattle. Storm Emma caused significant damage to several of the farm’s outbuildings, mostly due to accumulation and weight of snow, in addition to lost livestock and meal. One shed in particular, built just two years ago, was a key concern as it was of strategic importance for the upcoming summer period.
The priority for everyone was to begin essential repairs, and an interim settlement was issued early on to facilitate critical building works. Samuel was given his full settlement cheque by Zurich’s chief claims officer, Fiona Sage, just six weeks after making his claim.
Samuel commented: “The damage was a major setback to our farm and presented real challenges in the run-up to the crucial summer months. Zurich was really quick to come out and visit the farm, talk us through what would happen, and provide a settlement cheque that let us get on with the repair work and quickly get back on our feet.”
