The Pasture, Rangeland, Forage (PRF) Pilot Insurance Program is designed to provide insurance coverage on your pasture, rangeland, or forage acres grown for the intended use of grazing by livestock or haying. This program is designed to give you the ability to buy insurance protection for losses of forage produced for grazing or harvested for hay, which result in increased costs for feed, destocking, depopulating, or other actions. PRF is an area-based plan of insurance that uses a rainfall index to determine losses and trigger indemnities.
PRF is available in the 48 contiguous states with the exception of a few grids that cross international borders.
