Providing protection to Wisconsin dairy and livestock producers through three unique insurance products.
LIVESTOCK GROSS MARGIN DAIRY (LGM Dairy)
Following are a few highlights:
*Allows producers to ensure a breakeven milk price or lock in a profit, with a feed component added. Helps set a “floor” under milk revenue, yet not limit the upside potential for higher milk prices.
*Premiums are not due until the end of the contract, sometimes a year after sign-up, and premiums are subsidized at rate of 18 percent up to 50 percent.
*Protection can be chosen from two months in the future through 11 months in the future. Producers can pick all 10 insurance periods or any single month or any combinations of months.
Note: This product can only be purchased on the last business Friday of every month. Upcoming sales dates are February 22, March 22, April 26 and May 31.
LGM DAIRY FUNDING UPDATE: It appears that Federal funding for LGM Dairy Insurance will be sufficient to run the program through mid-summer and possibly through the complete fiscal year.
LIVESTOCK GROSS MARGIN (LGM)
*Protects against loss of gross margin (market value of finished livestock minus feeder cattle and feed/corn costs during the insurance period)
LIVESTOCK RISK PROTECTION (LRP)
*Protects against declining market prices without restricting profit potential
