Barb Holtgard Presented Lifetime Achievement Award
Barb Holtgard, who worked in the crop insurance industry for more than 40 years, was
presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award
at the 2020 Crop Insurance Industry Annual
Convention.
Barb began her career in crop insurance at
Nodak Mutual Insurance Company (now Nodak Insurance Company) in 1977. Because of
her leadership and extensive knowledge of how
RMA and crop insurance work, she was instrumental in the creation of American Farm Bureau
Insurance Services (AFBIS) in 1995. She has
been on multiple committees throughout the
years, including the NCIS Communications and
Outreach Committee, providing expertise on
how new products and ideas could be most beneficial to crop insurance customers. She has also
represented AFBIS on many occasions, including participating in the annual Crop Insurance
Reinsurance Bureau (CIRB) Fly-In event that
addresses Congress on the importance of crop
insurance to American agriculture.
Barb has experienced all aspects of the crop
insurance world, from field day training to underwriting and overseeing complete disaster
years and everything in between. She has witnessed the industry evolve and has watched what

a difference crop insurance makes to those that
need it. Barb has always displayed exceptional
commitment in representing the crop insurance
industry in a shining light to her peers, staff,
committee members, and the ag community.

When Barb retired from AFBIS in late 2019,
she left a legacy of incredible work ethic, topnotch customer service, and dedication to ensure
that those who put their trust in crop insurance
get the protection they need to farm another year.
