ASI Preliminary LRP-Lamb Coverage Prices and Rates
On Sept. 28, 2006, the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation's (FCIC) board of directors approved the expansion of the LRP insurance to include a lamb pilot program as requested by ASI. On July 18, 2007, the program details were finalized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) with sales beginning September 17, 2007.
ASI and its development partners, Applied Analytics, the American Sheep and Goat Center, the Livestock Marketing Information Center and Virginia Tech, worked with the FCIC and RMA for nearly three years to bring this much-needed insurance product to producers.
In June 2009, the FCIC approved modifications to the LRP-Lamb insurance product. View Modifications.
LRP-Lamb is designed to insure against unexpected declines in market prices of slaughter lambs. Sheep producers may select 13-week, 20-week, 26-week or 39-week insurance periods as well as coverage levels ranging from 80 percent to 95 percent of the expected ending value to correspond with their general feeding, production and marketing practices.
ASI has developed an online educational/training course detailing the features of LRP-Lamb. It is designed as a tool for producers and agents to utilize to learn more about the product and to offer scenarios to assist with the decision to purchase the insurance.
