PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Benefits

  • Dairy Revenue Protection (DRP) is an area-based product that pays when revenue drops because of lower prices, reduced production or both.
  • DRP fills a gap in existing risk coverage for dairy producers by addressing milk basis and variability in milk production by region.

Endorsement

  • A quarterly coverage endorsement gives you flexibility in your guarantees without having to change the underlying policy. You can purchase up to five quarters into the future on any sales closing date.
  • Premium is not attached to the policy until you fill out a quarterly coverage endorsement.

Pricing Options

  • The class pricing option uses your specified percentage of futures market Class III and Class IV milk prices (equal to 100).
  • The component pricing option uses a combination of butterfat, protein and other solids values based on your declared butterfat and protein tests.

Availability

  • DRP is available in all states.

Coverage Level

  • 80%, 85%, 90%, 95% of revenue guarantee.

Protection Factor

  • Between 1.00 and 1.50, in .05 increments
  • It is used to calculate the policy protection and impacts both premium and indemnity.

Other Coverages

  • You can have other livestock insurance policies, such as Livestock Gross Margin for Dairy, for all or part of the same period, as long as they do not cover the same milk.
  • USDA premium subsidies apply, as in crop insurance, ranging from 55% on 80% coverage, to 44% on 95% coverage.
  • Qualified Beginning Farmers and Ranchers and Veteran Farmers and Ranchers receive an additional 10% premium subsidy.

Available to all qualifying producers regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, and marital or family status.
