I agree. That is simply a place I am familiar with have driven past it numerous times.

I think I prefer:


as it seems more consistent. In my mind, the second key of “farm:type=feedlot” mixes keys and values oddly. If the primary key were “landuse=farm” then it would make more sense to me for a “farm:type” subkey. 

Looks like “landuse=farmyard” is more used than “landuse=farm” and the farmyard wiki page [1] says “landuse=farm” is not recommended.
