As a native Texan born and raised in the Houston-Galveston area here is my answer to a question that I couldn't resist.

The iPath Series B Bloomberg Livestock Subindex Total Return Exchange Traded Notes, Ticker symbol COW.

This investment vehicle is able to trade in both cattle and hog futures. It is obviously subject to volitility and from my research is dependent upon Braclays Bank PLC to meet obligations

as they become due. The cusip is 06746P498 It began January 17, 2018 and matures January 23, 2048. As of 12/31/18 Closing Market Value was $48.93.  Market Cap $7,830,170

with a float of 160,028.  YeeHa! I think I'll stick to T-bones and Filets!

Best of luck trading this one!
