Commonwealth Livestock will contain a new quest line based on a livestock supply rivalry for Choice Chops in Diamond City.
This questline will bring new original characters into the world of Fallout 4 as well as characters from Fallout New Vegas.
A detailed synopsis of the story and setting for this new quest line can be read below.

In the year 2281, a legendary individual known simply as the Courier assisted with a mysterious problem that plagued a brahmin ranch in Novac. The Courier's actions allowed the owners of the ranch Dusty McBride and his wife Alice to expand their small business into an impressive trading empire that now dominates the brahmin trade in the Mojave region. Now six years later in 2287 Dusty McBride and his wife have traveled to Diamond City with the intention of expanding their business into the Commonwealth. The arrival of the McBride family represents a threat to the aristocratic Codman family whose farms govern the brahmin trade in the Commonwealth region. Clarence Codman has chosen to hire the Marroni mob to ensure his family continues to govern the brahmin trade in the Commonwealth. The Sole Survivor may choose to enter this growing conflict between mobsters and ranchers, siding with either family and embarking on a journey that will ultimately determine the fate of the livestock trade in the Commonwealth.
