Livestock Risk Protection (LRP)
Prepare and Protect Your Operation from Declines in Livestock Prices.
Stockguard’s Livestock Risk Protection (LRP) makes it easier than ever for farmers and ranchers to guard their livelihoods from volatile market prices.
Administered by the USDA, LRP allows you to set a floor selling price for your livestock by the head.
LRP coverage is especially important in today’s climate, as events including livestock disease outbreaks, drought, industry facility disruptions, and COVID-19 can cause market prices to drop unexpectedly.
Benefits of Livestock Risk Protection from Stockguard
Hedging by the head
Compared to futures and options, LRP has no quantity minimum, which means you can get coverage for one animal up to thousands of animals in one policy.
LPR’s flexible coverage options allow you to buy the policy that best fits your operation. Customize your policy’s price level, purchase timing, coverage length, and target weight for the livestock at the end of your coverage.
There won't be any shocks to your cash flow. With LRP, there are no margin calls, and your premium is due when your animals are marketed.
Stockguard brings innovation to the agriculture industry with our risk management portal. You have the ability to order, manage, and track your coverage all in one location.
