CROP INSURANCE IN ACTION: Klodette and Rich Stroh, Powell, Wyoming
Klodette Stroh isn't your typical Wyoming farm girl.
Klodette is an Assyrian, born in Teheran, Iran, who came to the U.S. to attend college with the goal of becoming a physician and instead wound up falling in love with Wyoming farmer, Rick Stroh.
The couple began farming together in 1989, first purchasing some equipment and leasing land, all while hoping to one day own a farm of their own. After years of hard work, the couple finally achieved a hard-fought dream and purchased their own farmland. Today, the couple, and their sons Rick and Paul, farm nearly 1,800 acres of malt barley, wheat, varieties of dry edible beans, corn and hay, near Powell, Wyoming. They also tend to more than 50 head of cattle.

National Crop Insurance Services (NCIS) is a not-for-profit trade association whose members include each of the 17 crop insurance companies that participate in the Federal crop insurance program. These companies are responsible for writing Crop-Hail insurance, Federal crop insurance policies, and privately developed risk management products, so it is a high priority for NCIS to properly educate and inform companies of changes or updates within the industry. NCIS and its predecessor organizations have provided members support in their crop insurance businesses since 1915.
