The Hog Price Insurance Program is designed to provide producers with protection against declining hog prices. 

Hog producers have the option to purchase an insurance policy based on a forecasted hog price. When the policy expires the coverage purchased is compared to a settlement price. If the settlement price is below the insured price, a payment of the difference is made.
