January 24, 2018
Tred R. Eyerly – Insurance Law Hawaii

The insureds' claim for loss of cattle and lost milk production was covered under the policy. Chatelain v. Country Mut. Ins. Co., 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 206621 (D. Or. Dec. 15, 2017).

The insureds leased their dairy farm to the Brauns. At the time of the lease, the dairy farm had 230 milking cows, 166 heifers, two bulls, and all equipment necessary to operate a dairy. The Brauns violated their lease in November 2013, and the insureds moved back on the farm. On December 20, 2013, the first time milking their cows after returning to the farm, the insureds noticed that 113 milking cows and 100 heifers were missing. They also noticed that several pieces of equipment were missing and that substantial damage had been done to the farm.
