Agricultural farming faces several risks, including risks of the natural environment, business economic risks, and policy change risks. In order to deal with this, insurance is needed. In the field of animal husbandry, livestock mutual aid exists, has played an important role for the development of livestock industry and stabilization of livestock farming. However, in terms of the environment surrounding the livestock industry and the change in livestock management itself in Japan, livestock mutual aid is required to be reconsidered. We are considering how the insurance system that supports it should be from the viewpoint of comparative institutional analysis in comparison with the livestock insurance system of other countries.
