Pasture, Rangeland, Forage (PRF) Pilot Insurance Program is designed to provide insurance coverage on your pasture, rangeland or forage acres. 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.
- Annual Forage Pilot
The Annual Forage pilot program provides coverage to acreage that is planted each year and used as feed and fodder by livestock.

The Apiculture Pilot Insurance Program provides a safety net for beekeepers’ primary income sources – honey, pollen collection, wax and breeding stock. The Apiculture Rainfall Index uses the same basic provisions as the Pasture, Rangeland, Forage pilot program.
