[Cape Girardeau, MO] – W.E. Walker-Lakenan Insurance has achieved the On Your Side® Master Farm Certification designation from Nationwide, the #1 farm insurer in the U.S. Agents Doug Mueller, Drew Sherman and Janice Scherer attended the training in Des Moines, IA. Master Farm Certification is the next step in Nationwide’s On Your Side Farm Certification program. Farmers and ranchers can depend on a Master Farm Certified agent to have an in-depth understanding of their farming operations, provide detailed risk assessments, educate them about exposures, match coverages to meet their needs, and provide professional, knowledgeable service.

“We’re excited to become a Master Certified agency,” said Joe Stahly, President of W.E. Walker. “We have made a commitment to help protect farmers and ranchers in our area with the highest levels of professionalism and service. Master certification tells our area farmers that we’ll keep investing in training to be sure we’re positioned to help protect them now and as their operations grow.”

The Master Farm Certified designation is also intended to help farmers and ranchers recognize agents who have made a continuing commitment to understanding the complex risks faced by the agriculture industry. Only agents who successfully complete the program will be awarded the designation, and agents must uphold service commitments to retain their Master Certification.

“Nationwide Agribusiness developed this multi-level certification program to provide additional education and resources to insurance agents who have made a commitment to protecting farms and ranches,” said Dirk Pollitt, Nationwide agribusiness sales VP. “We’re proud of the agents who complete the program and are excited about the level of service farmers and ranchers can expect from partnering with Master Farm Certified agents.”
