Crop Hail Insurance
Policies are not part of the Federal crop insurance program. Crop-Hail coverage is purchased because hail has the aptitude to completely destroy a major part of a planted field while some is left untouched. A crop-hail policy can be purchased at any time during the growing season.
MPCI (Multi-Peril Crop Insurance)
Policies must be purchased prior to planting and cover loss of crop yields from all types of natural causes including drought, excessive moisture, freeze, and disease. Newer coverage options combine yield protection and price protection to protect farmers against potential loss in revenue, whether due to low yields or changes in market price.

Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR)
Crop insurance provides producers with protection against low revenue from natural causes and market fluctuations. The insurance covers income from agricultural commodities, as well as income from animals, animal products, and aquaculture species reared in a controlled environment.
LIVESTOCK RISK PROTECTION
Insurance covers the risk of price declines for feeder cattle, fed cattle and swine. It provides producers an indemnity if a regional or national cash price index falls below an insured coverage price. Similar to a put option, the LRP policy is price insurance only, providing single-peril price risk protection for the future sale of insured livestock.
LIVESTOCK GROSS MARGIN
Insurance offers protection against a decline in the feeding margin for cattle and swine. An indemnity is paid if the insured gross margin is greater than the total actual gross margin at the end of the insurance period.
