About Livestock Price Insurance

Livestock Price Insurance (LPI) is a risk management program available in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The Program provides producers with coverage against market volatility, including an unexpected drop in prices over a defined period of time. Producers can purchase price protection on calves, feeder and fed cattle and hogs, in the form of an insurance policy. Policies are based on a forward market price. If, at the end of the policy the insured price is higher than the market price, the producer will receive a payment for the difference. The program is continuing under the federal-provincial policy framework agreement: the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
