PRF is commonly referred to as “drought insurance”, but what it’s actually insuring is rainfall volatility. PRF insurance triggers indemnity payments when rainfall in your area is less than the 70-year average.
With Pasture, Rangeland, and Forage (PRF) insurance you can cover grazing or haying acres, whether owned or leased, so you can be happy when it rains but have peace of mind when it doesn't.

PRF insurance is part of the Farm Bill. The United States Federal Government pays for part of the crop insurance premium.
Your coverage will begin January 1 and is allocated throughout the year based on historic rainfall data in your area.
Redd Summit uses specialized software to generate hundreds of thousands of coverage possibilities for your land. You are then able to choose a policy that optimizes your coverage placement to maximize your potential benefit.
Using NOAA CPC data, your area’s normal rainfall, and deviations from it, will be calculated. Using that data, your rainfall is then compared against the 70-year average for your area. When rainfall data is below the 70-year average, it then triggers indemnities on your policy!
Your indemnities first go toward your premium. Once your premium is satisfied, any future indemnities come straight at you.
Disaster programs like LFP and NAP provided need-based assistance only during catastrophic weather events. PRF issues payments whenever rainfall in your area is lower than average during your coverage interval, meaning you can still receive coverage outside of drought conditions.
