The Western Hog Price Insurance Program is designed to provide producers with protection against declining hog prices. Hog producers have the option to purchase an insurance policy based on a forecasted hog price. When the policy expires the coverage purchased is compared to a settlement price. If the settlement price is below the insured price, a payment of the difference is made.

WHPIP is a simple and easy to understand risk management tool for Western Canada's hog producers.  The program strives to be timely and market driven.  Hog producers have the ability to choose an insured price, providing them with a "floor" price that acts as protection against drops in the market for the month insurance is purchased for.

Getting Started

Participation is voluntary and will be available hog producers in Western Canada.
