Customizable Risk Management for Farms of all Sizes
The Dairy Revenue Protection insurance tool enables dairy farmers to protect revenue from adverse changes in milk prices, allowing them to lock in profits and perhaps even capture upside potential.
What is Dairy Revenue Protection?
Run by the USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) and approved by the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation, Dairy Revenue Protection is an insurance tool allowing dairy farmers to purchase risk management protection against declines in quarterly revenue from milk sales as a result of a decline in milk prices, a decline in milk production, or both.
How does Dairy Revenue Protection work?
90% and 95% Coverage = 44%
85% Coverage = 49%
80% Coverage = 55%

To take advantage of current market conditions and program subsidies, dairy farmers can purchase Dairy Revenue Protection from a USDA-approved crop insurance agent. By working with one of INTL FCStone's knowledgeable agents, farmers can create a risk management plan that fits any operation.
KEY: As long as these market dynamics persist, farmers will have a unique opportunity to purchase significantly subsidized dairy margin coverage at a premium that is lower than it would be under more volatile market conditions.

Why purchase Dairy Revenue Protection through INTL FCStone?
No matter where crop insurance is purchased, the rates and subsidy percent will always be the same. The only difference between agents is dairy knowledge and their ability to help producers optimize coverage. Producers must decide when to buy coverage, how many pounds, at what level and type, and what protection factor is best for their individual situation.
With decades of experience and access to deep liquidity, the professional advisors on our Dairy Team can help you devise and purchase a Dairy Revenue Protection policy uniquely suited to your needs. This includes not only the opportunity to protect revenue and lock in profits, but also the potential to capture some benefits if CME milk prices continue to rise.
