About Us

Who We Are

Livestock Insurance Exchange is a branch of the Specialty Risk Insurance Agency. After 20 years in the insurance industry, our founder, Kevin Charleston, decided to open his own agency in July 2012. When he isn't selling insurance or managing the agency he is running his bull business, K & T Cattle Company, with his wife Trish.

Kevin founded our company on the belief that when a business is focused on serving people, success follows. Today, we’ve built a dedicated team who shares Kevin’s service-oriented approach. Specialty Risk Insurance Agency is now one of the top agribusiness insurance agencies in the nation. Through Livestock Insurance Exchange, we’re bringing our expertise to livestock insurance and animal mortality policies.

As we work with agents who serve clients in the livestock industry, we bring the necessary resources, time, and energy to their clients’ concerns. Because many of our agents are also farmers or ranchers, we also bring an unmatched depth of industry knowledge. We understand the risks that threaten your clients’ operations and we can help you ensure they’re well-protected.

When you work with Livestock Insurance Exchange, you’ll have access to a variety of insurance carriers. Most agencies work with one carrier, which limits the coverage and options they can provide. Because we’re connected to multiple carriers, we can build a customized policy for your clients, one that fits the specific needs of their livestock operation, and we can find the best value on the market.

Livestock insurance and animal mortality policies are essential to those who depend on these animals for their livelihood. At Livestock Insurance Exchange, we understand the risks and challenges of this industry, and we can help you protect your clients from unexpected loss. Contact us today, and let’s talk about how we can use our experience and resources to customize a policy that fits your clients’ needs.
