LRP Insurance Experts

Your Livestock's Financial Safety Net

Livestock Risk Protection Insurance

Bagley Risk Management is a leading provider of Livestock Risk Protection (LRP) insurance, which is designed to provide a safety net for ranchers and farmers who rely on livestock for their income. This innovative insurance product offers protection against price fluctuations in the livestock market, which can be volatile and unpredictable.

With LRP insurance, ranchers and farmers have the ability to set a floor price for their livestock, ensuring that they’ll receive a certain amount of money if market prices drop below that level. This can help to mitigate the risk of financial losses that can occur when livestock prices fall unexpectedly.

What Makes Us Unique?

We are unique in the LRP field in the sense that we aren’t your typical insurance agent. We utilize not only LRP, but the board of trade to secure potential indemnities or rallies that may occur during the insurance period but may be lost due to market fluctuations before insurance period expiration. We use a variety of strategies utilizing, but not limited to options, board positions, and the combination of both to take advantage of extra potential income.

LRP Insurance

Every business has different types of risk management protocol or insurance protecting inventory, processes, and employees. Ranchers and farmers are no exception. At Bagley Risk Management, we will help guard you against the uncertainties of the weather and the commodities market through livestock risk protection (LRP) insurance. Bagley Risk Management has been protecting ranchers of cattle and swine from falling prices in the commodities market since 2011.

LRP insurance can be purchased at any time during the crop year (July 1 through June 30) for endorsements ranging from 13 weeks to one year for feeder cattle, fed cattle, or swine covering 70 to 100 percent of the expected ending value of your herd. Unborn animals are covered as long as the mother is owned by the rancher taking out the policy. Prices, rates, actual ending values and per hundredweight insurance costs are posted on the USDA Risk Management Agency website,

Advantages of carrying LRP Insurance on your herd include:

  • Price protection
  • Financial stability
  • Budget planning
  • Risk management
  • Flexibility
  • Peace of mind
  • Access to credit
  • Market downturns
  • Protecting investments
  • Complements other risk management tools

It is important to note that LRP insurance only protects against downfalls in the market, not illness of individual animals or the whole herd.

Comprehensive Solutions for Livestock Financial Security

Our Specialized Insurance Solutions

Swine Insurance

Our swine insurance policies are designed to provide comprehensive coverage for your swine-related investments. Whether you're involved in swine production from a finishing or farrowing operation, our insurance offers protection against the unpredictable swings in the market. This means that when market prices experience sudden fluctuations or unforeseen challenges arise, you won't have to bear the financial burden alone. Instead, our insurance will step in to help you weather these storms, ensuring that your investments remain secure.

Cattle Insurance

Our cattle insurance policies are carefully crafted to offer consistent returns and act as a cushion against unexpected market drops. We recognize that the cattle industry can be influenced by factors beyond your control, such as changes in demand, supply fluctuations, or even unforeseen disease outbreaks. With our insurance coverage, you can minimize the financial risks associated with these challenges. When you choose our cattle insurance, you're choosing a partner that understands the unique characteristics of cattle farming.

Livestock Risk Protection Insurance (LRP Insurance) is a federally subsidized insurance program that helps livestock owners protect themselves against adverse price fluctuations in the livestock market. LRP policyholders can purchase insurance that covers potential losses due to market price declines. This insurance is particularly useful for livestock owners who are heavily invested in the cattle, hog, and lamb markets.

LRP Insurance

Protection Against Decline

Market prices for livestock, including fed cattle, feeder cattle, and swine, are notoriously fickle. These fluctuations can negatively impact the expected revenue streams for farmers and businesses. LRP acts as a buffer, insuring you against these potentially steep and sudden declines, thereby ensuring stability in your earnings.

LRP Insurance

Customizable Plans

Every livestock business is unique, each with its own operational nuances, goals, and timelines. A one-size-fits-all approach just won't do. We present an array of coverage levels and insurance durations. This allows for a bespoke insurance experience, ensuring alignment with when your livestock is projected to enter the market or be sold.

LRP Insurance

Transparent Evaluations

Trust is pivotal in insurance, and it's constructed on the bedrock of transparent processes and authentic data. We don't just provide numbers. Our ending values are rooted in and reflect the objective and neutral weighted prices sourced directly from the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. This ensures our partners always know where they stand.

LRP Insurance

Always Available

While livestock farming can be seasonal, risks are not. They linger around the year, irrespective of peak selling times. Come rain or shine, winter or summer, we’re here. Our policies are available for purchase throughout the year, underlining our constant commitment to your livestock's security.

LRP Insurance

Guaranteed Indemnities

Sometimes, despite all precautions, the market might not be in one’s favor. When ending values are lesser than the insured coverage price, losses can be daunting. In such trying times, Bagley Risk Management steps forward. We compensate for the difference between the market value and your coverage price, ensuring market downturns don’t translate to financial setbacks for you.
