The Basics of Livestock Risk Protection

As a livestock producer, you work hard to get your livestock ready for market. However, many risks can cause market prices to drop without warning. Stockguard’s Livestock Risk Protection is here to help you secure your investment against today’s volatile market. 

What is Livestock Risk Protection (LRP)?

LRP is a USDA-administered insurance program that protects your operation against unexpected national market price drops. 

There are many risks that can cause sudden price drops. Producers who fail to insure their livestock against price drops risk losing their profit, and may even be unable to continue farming.

LRP sets a price floor that protects you against sudden price drops when you’re ready to take your herd to market. You’ll still benefit from higher prices if the end value is above your insured cost.
