Livestock producers have until June 10 to purchase their Livestock Price Insurance calf policies. The purchase deadline has been permanently extended into June, with settlements now offered in January and February.
This change closes a risk management gap and provides producers who calve in late spring, summer or fall with additional opportunities to participate in the program.
Livestock Price Insurance for calves is intended for calves born in the spring and sold in the fall and early new year. Producers can tailor coverage to their operation by purchasing price insurance for intended marketings from September to February.
