Dairy Revenue Protection Insurance

Dairy Revenue Protection (DRP) provides protection against an unexpected decline in revenue (yield and/or price) on the milk produced from dairy cows. This policy allows producers to choose how much and when to enroll their milk.

Dairy Revenue Protection — in Action

"The indemnities we've received, along with other risk management strategies we have in place, have helped  us weather the lower milk prices this year. And the dairy and livestock insurance specialists have been fantastic. They are always very responsive to our needs and our monthly meetings have been very informative."

Julie Patterson, Co-Owner and Chief Financial Officer of Patterson Farms, Inc., a sixth-generation dairy farm in Cayuga County, N.Y.
