The Teucrium Agricultural Fund
The Teucrium Agricultural Fund (NYSE: TAGS) provides investors unleveraged exposure to four core agricultural commodities (corn, wheat, soybeans, and sugar) without the need for a futures account. TAGS invests directly in shares of the following four Teucrium Funds: Teucrium Corn Fund, Teucrium Soybean Fund, Teucrium Sugar Fund and Teucrium Wheat Fund (the “Underlying Funds”).
The investment objective of TAGS is to have the daily changes in percentage terms of the Shares’ Net Asset Value (“NAV”) reflect the daily changes in percentage terms of a weighted average of the NAVs per share of the Underlying Funds each weighted 25%.

TAGS is a commodity pool that may be purchased and sold on the NYSE Arca. The Fund is a series of the Teucrium Commodity Trust (“Trust”), a Delaware statutory trust organized on September 11, 2009. The Fund is one of five series of the Trust; each series operates as a separate commodity pool. The Fund is managed and controlled by the Sponsor, Teucrium Trading, LLC. The Sponsor is registered as a commodity pool operator (“CPO”) with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC") and is a member of the National Futures Association ("NFA").
The Teucrium Agricultural Fund provides investors exposure to four core agricultural commodities without the need for a futures account. TAGS invests directly in shares of the following four Teucrium Funds: Teucrium Corn Fund, Teucrium Soybean Fund, Teucrium Sugar Fund and Teucrium Wheat Fund (the “Underlying Funds”).
Investing in the Underlying Funds subjects TAGS to the risks of the corn, wheat, soybean, and sugar markets, and this could result in substantial fluctuations in the price of Shares of TAGS. Unlike mutual funds, TAGS generally will not distribute dividends to Shareholders.
Investors may choose to use TAGS as a means of investing indirectly in corn, wheat, soybeans, and sugar, and there are risks involved in such investments and activities. The Sponsor has limited experience in operating a commodity pool, which is defined as an enterprise in which several individuals contribute funds in order to trade futures or futures options collectively.
Commodities and futures generally are volatile and are not suitable for all investors.
The Teucrium Agricultural Fund is not a mutual fund or any other type of Investment Company within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and is not subject to regulation thereunder.
Shares of the Teucrium Agricultural Fund are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and have no bank guarantee.
