Texas Farm Credit, an agricultural lending cooperative, recently announced the hiring of John Paul Ayad as an Insurance Sales Representative in its Bonham, Texas branch office.

Agriculture insurance is a set of risk management tools that help protect farmers and ranchers from weather and market price volatility. Policies are tailored to each specific customer and their operation. As experts in rural financing, Texas Farm Credit has decades of policy writing experience.

Ayad was raised in Leonard, Texas where he spent summers hauling hay and driving tractors for local farmers. He also participated in the Leonard FFA chapter and show team, where he showed Simmental cattle. His background and passion for the rural lifestyle incentivized him to pursue a career in the agriculture field.

Prior to joining Texas Farm Credit, Ayad worked as an independent crop insurance adjuster for 15 years. He is married with two daughters and enjoys hunting and team roping.
