Western Livestock Price Insurance

Applications are now being accepted for a new livestock price insurance product designed to help cattle and hog producers manage unexpected price declines.

The Western Livestock Price Insurance Program (WLPIP), announced by federal and western provincial ministers on January 24, 2014, enables livestock producers to purchase price protection on cattle and hogs in the form of an insurance policy.  This new insurance product offers protection against an unexpected drop in prices over a defined period of time, and is available to producers in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
