About Cattle Raisers Insurance
Where we began
Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) leaders have a tradition of finding or creating solutions to the problems faced by ranchers and their families. More than 40 years ago, TSCRA leaders saw that ranching families were struggling to find affordable insurance coverage from reputable companies that understood the unique challenges of ranching and the rural lifestyle.
To meet this need, TSCRA leaders looked for an established company with which to create an insurance agency designed for ranchers. TSCRA Insurance Services was launched in 1977.
Over the years, TSCRA Insurance Services has evolved into a full-service insurance brokerage for the members of TSCRA and is now known as Cattle Raisers Insurance (CRI). CRI is licensed with top A-rated insurance companies to bring you the best coverage for your ranching needs.
CRI’s licensed staff offers you access to our more than 40 years of experience in a broad variety of health, life, property and other insurance products, and our deep understanding of the challenges ranchers, their families and employees face.
We share common values with our clients, and we provide you with uncommon service. If you’re looking for a one-stop place to shop for insurance, we’re ready to help.
When you face the challenges of finding insurance suited to the needs of the ranching business and lifestyle, look at the solutions Cattle Raisers Insurance has to offer. Call the Cattle Raisers Insurance team at 800-252-2849.
