Livestock Risk Protection
Allows the producer to protect the value of feeder cattle he/she plans to sell as feeders or as fats. Values are determined on a daily basis and quotes can only be determined while the CME is closed. This policy will not insure against death or disease, only a decrease in price.
Pasture, Rangeland, Forage (PRF)
Allows livestock producers the ability to insure either pasture and/or hay ground against lack of rainfall. The producer must select which 2-month interval he/she wants to insure. Ground to be insured is identified by the 12x12-mile grid in which it is located.
