The land is not used by/forĀ  'meadow'.
It is used to produce animal_fodder .. so landuse=animal_fodder would be 
a better term.

Land use should not have values of land cover but rather the land use.
This helps separate it from the cover and sets it as the use. Mixing it 
with the cover than gets mappers to use things like landuse=shrub, sand, 
rock etc.
