A Day in the Life of a Livestock Operations Manager

Cassie is a Livestock Operations Manager with AgriSompo North America. Follow along below as she walks you through a typical day in her role.


How do you start your day? 

With a large cup of coffee 😊

Which tasks do you perform best in the morning and why? 

I go through my email inbox from oldest to newest so I can see if any agents need immediate assistance from the evening before or early in the morning.  Livestock insurance is extremely time sensitive with the coverage cut-off being noon. All paperwork must be completed by that deadline each day.

I also check my work cell phone to see if I received any missed calls with voicemails.  I call everyone back that may need a return call in the morning, as well (usually voicemails indicate help is needed).


How do you spend the bulk of your workday?

I spend the bulk of my workday communicating with agents regarding their policies.  I also run reports to clear policy errors, which requires contacting agents to assist with fixing those issues.

Wrapping Up the Day

What do you wrap up before you sign out for the day?

I make sure everything has been addressed (emails/phone calls) so I’m not holding anyone up to start fresh the next day.

What tasks do you leave until the end of the day and why?

Clean up my desk and put everything in order to start fresh the next day.
