Dairy Insurance Products

Dairy Revenue Protection (DRP)

Insure your operation against unexpected declines in the quarterly revenue from milk sales relative to a guaranteed coverage level. The expected revenue is based on the futures price for milk and dairy commodities, and the amount of covered milk production is chosen by you. Covered milk production is indexed to the state or region where you are located.

Livestock Gross Margin - Dairy Cattle (LGM-Dairy)

Protect your dairy operation when feed costs rise or milk prices drop. LGM-Dairy uses futures prices for corn, soybean meal and milk to determine the expected gross margin. Milk sold for commercial or private sale and intended for final human consumption from dairy cattle is eligible for coverage. Prices are based on simple averages of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Group futures contract daily settlement prices, and are not based on the prices you receive at market.

Pasture, Rangeland, Forage Protection (PRF)

Insure your acres of forage or grazing ground from the risk of forage loss due to the lack of precipitation. Coverage is based on your selection of coverage level, index interval and productivity factor.
