What is LRP?

Livestock Risk Protection (LRP) and Livestcock Gross Margin (LGM) for fed and feeder cattle from the USDA's Risk Management Agency (RMA) are federally-reinsured, subsidized livestock products that provide protection against the decline in cattle prices. They are improving every year and should be considered as part of a risk management plan for cattle owners and feeding operations of any size.
