Meat buyers and food service operators: Manage risk with customized products
Some of these livestock products include:
- Pork carcass cutout
- Pork bellies
- Pork and beef trimmings
- Pork butt primal
- Pork back ribs
Wholesalers, distributors, food service operators and retail buyers have all faced increased volatility and higher prices in recent years. In many cases, suppliers have shifted the price risk of meats and commodities back onto you, the buyer.
That’s where StoneX comes in. We offer a full suite of meat and livestock swaps that match your company’s specific price risk and have the flexibility to be customized to your needs, including volumes, tenors, settlement styles and more. As one of the first few non-bank swap dealers to offer this product line, we are uniquely positioned to connect you with products tailored to your business.

Manage margin risk with specialized OTC products
Livestock and meat processors face a unique challenge managing margin risk associated with buying inputs and marketing outputs that may not be tradable on a futures exchange. StoneX Markets offers a full suite of OTC products which may match your company’s specific price risk even better than existing standardized livestock futures products.

What are livestock futures?
Livestock futures are a type of financial contract that enables investors to speculate on the future price of livestock commodities, such as cattle, hogs, and pork bellies. These contracts are traded on commodity futures exchanges and enable investors to lock in a price for the delivery of livestock at a future date.
Livestock futures are used by farmers, meat packers, processors and traders to hedge against the risks of price volatility in the livestock market. By locking in the price of a future delivery, these market participants can better manage their risks and plan their operations with greater certainty.
What is livestock risk protection?
Livestock Risk Protection (LRP) allows livestock businesses to acquire insurance coverage for their cattle, safeguarding them from unfavorable shifts in cattle market prices. This tool aims to sustain efficient management of financial performance and overall profitability.
StoneX’s price-risk management professionals work with you to optimize your LRP coverage to fit your business operations and needs. Contact us for more information.
