How to Invest in Butter
Butter is a consumer staple that can be found in nearly all households. Its role as a traded commodity, however, is perhaps not as well-known. Butter can be a lucrative investment as it offers a play on consumption trends as well as the state of the overall agricultural world. Interest in butter as an investable asset is not nearly as significant as desire for other agricultural commodities. Investors looking for exposure to butter prices are able to invest in futures contracts or equities of butter producers, though the market for the commodity is not nearly as deep other agricultural markets.
