What is LRP?

LRP-Swine and LGM-Swine from the USDA's Risk Management Agency (RMA) are federally-reinsured, subsidized livestock products that provide protection against the decline in hog prices. They are improving every year and should be considered as part of a risk management plan for hog operations of every size.
