Livestock Risk Protection is a federally-reinsured livestock product that provides single peril risk protection against the decline in prices over the insurance period.

This insurance may be purchased throughout the year. Premium rates, coverage prices, and actual ending values are posted online daily. The RMA monitors capacity levels, and when the funding limit has been reached, sales for this product will cease. LRP does not insure against death, loss or poor performance.

At the end of the insurance period, if the actual ending value is below the coverage price, an indemnity will be paid for the difference.
