Duane started farming in high school, so he has the farming background and common sense of what farmers need.  He has been involved in the crop insurance industry for over 30 years ever since his dad, Floyd, purchased the business and started Haugen Insurance.  Once computers were introduced, Floyd stepped aside. Duane really took a liking to the technology upgrade.  After a brief stint selling health insurance alongside crop insurance, Duane sold his health insurance book to concentrate on the ever changing industry of crop insurance.  Duane has experienced a lot of change and adversity and is able to relate with a lot of the clients’ needs and visions.
