AP: Nebraska insurance company going strong after 125 years

(AP/ -- The AP reports that Farmers Mutual of Nebraska, one of Nebraska's largest insurers, "is going strong and weathering the market's changes more than a century after it was formed." The story quotes Mark Walz, chairman, president and CEO of Farmers Mutual of Nebraska, and a State Chamber board member, as saying the company, "which turned 125 in November, has evolved since a group of 22 farmers decided to get into the business in 1891." The company has since branched out into South Dakota and is the largest insurer of farms in both states, and the largest Nebraska-based property insurer, according to the AP.
