Different than insurance, a surety bond is designed to guarantee a principal’s integrity and honesty, performance and financial responsibility, and compliance with a law or contract. Our most common agricultural bonds include:

Warehouse bonds

Required for most grain elevator operators to guarantee the elevator complies with the rules and regulations set forth by state and federal agencies regarding grain storage.

Dealer bonds

Required for people licensed with the Department of Agriculture who buy and resell agricultural products. Dealer bonds include grain dealer bonds, hay dealer bonds, livestock dealer bonds, milk dealer bonds and produce dealer bonds.

Fuel tax bonds

Required for fuel sellers, such as convenience stores, to guarantee payment of all required taxes, penalties and any interest owed.

Federal bonds

Required for fuel manufacturers or distributors to guarantee that the principal will comply with federal agency rules and regulations, and pay required taxes.
