Weaned Calf Risk Protection


The Weaned Calf Risk Protection insurance program is currently being developed by AgriLogic Consulting in collaboration with Windmark Insurance. This program is designed to provide beef cow-calf producers with risk protection for their calves up to weaning age.

Given the far-reaching and significant economic impact of the cattle industry and the vulnerability of cattle producers to financial loss, an improved form of risk management is needed. The general structure for the coverage will be similar in concept to the widely utilized revenue protection insurance plans which have long been available for major commodity crops such as corn, soybeans, and cotton and include both price and yield protection. Once developed and approved by the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation Board of Directors, Weaned Calf Risk Protection will be a federally subsidized crop insurance program available in major beef cattle producing states through Approved Insurance Providers.
