Livestock insurance

Markel have been involved in the agricultural industry for over fifty years. We look to establish and develop the best livestock insurance products in the world. With an ever evolving livestock industry and continued globalisation, we work  to keep our policies in-line with growing market need. We can provide individually tailored insurance solutions for the largest livestock company, having operations in several countries, to an individual animal transit for a zoo.

Markel has a team of livestock underwriters based in London and Geneva. In 2010 Markel reinforced our commitment to the livestock insurance market following the purchase of American Livestock.  The London-based team writes business through Markel syndicate 3000 and Markel International Insurance Company.
