Members saved money in ‘09
Buckeye Farm News: 2009 - A Year In Review
Ohio Farm Bureau members have a number of benefits available to them ranging from money savings to property protection. Here are a few of the benefits that members took advantage of (as of November) in 2009.
Insurance — Because of the partnership Ohio Farm Bureau has with Nationwide Insurance and our newest partner, Medical Mutual of Ohio, members were able to save money on auto, home, farm and health insurance.
$2,500 Reward — Ohio Farm Bureau’s Property Protection Program paid more than $25,000 in rewards to individuals providing information to local law enforcement agencies, which led to the arrest and conviction of people committing felonies on the property of Farm Bureau members. The Buckeye State Sheriffs' Association endorses this program and encourages Ohio residents to display the reward signs on their property.
Workers' Compensation — In 2009, more than 9,000 members saved between 25 percent to 77 percent on workers' compensation premiums. This year, CompManagement Inc. served as a new partner with OFBF in administrating the program.
Grainger — In 2009, Ohio Farm Bureau members received discounts totaling $79,948 on tools, electrical equipment, safety and security equipment, plus much more.
Case IH — Farm Bureau members purchased 49 new tractors from Case IH and saved significant money with the company’s rebate program for Farm Bureau members.
Dodge — A long-time member benefit is the rebate program offered through Dodge. Ohio Farm Bureau members were able to save money on the purchases of more than 300 Dodge vehicles in 2009.
Choice Hotels — Farm Bureau members who travel took advantage of the special discount offered through Choice hotels. The total number of room nights used by Farm Bureau members increased by nearly 40 percent more than the totals for 2008.
