The only slight change I'd suggest is to give the elephant a 4th leg :P

Honestly, I left it out because I thought four legs all crammed together wouldn't look good. Turns out it's not bad. Here you go! :)

So, as bovines were a favorite species of character for me to make in CoH the name "Cash Cow" inevitably popped into my head. I had to search back to pages 52-50 to find businesses that might use that name: casinos and cash advance operations, or possibly even lottery scratch-off tickets. Unless GG or Thazager have their hearts set on it, the top artwork for CreekCasino.png on page 52 looks like you're staring almost directly into the open mouth of a mooing bull as the dark blue "Nike" swooshes resemble horns. If you ever thought of retasking it, it could work.
I've gone all the way back to page 38 and nothing has caught my eye for possible retasking. If you like the name feel free to use it as you see fit. If not, don't worry about it. It's just an idea.

I was on vacation with a bunch of friends, and we all agreed that Cash Cow was a great name for scratch-off lottery tickets. It's too good an idea, in fact, to just re-purpose another design concept for it, so let me noodle around with some ideas for a while to do it justice.

Thanks for the consideration. Problem is that it's: A. not an original idea and B. probably already been used at least once for scratch-off lottery tickets somewhere. I just listed scratch-off tickets as an example.
A quick web search reveals that it's already been used on slot machines. If it is going to be for gambling then it has to be for a casino, as a Bing search did not reveal a casino with that name.
The only other thing I can think of that might use that name would be a themed savings program or account at a bank, savings & loan or credit union. That's as far as logos go.

Now ... outside of logos it would actually make a good name for a bovine villain, corporate-sponsored hero or a mascot character for a financial institution --- as-in

"Come on down to 'Price Redding's S&L' for our SUPER SAVER DAYS and have your picture taken with The Cash Cow when you open a SUPER SAVER account. Free chocolate milk boxes and Cash Cow piggy-banks for the kids." 8-)

I've never truly considered making such a character until now, but I'm up for it if somebody asked me to for one purpose or another. I have ideas that actually could be put together to serve such a character quite well if GG or Thazager ever had the desire for one. - As Lucius Fox said: "I think I have just the thing."
