I also have a need for this, so please share what scheme you come up
with, or you could even submit a proposal. I recommend this one:

amenity=marketplace + marketplace=livestock +
livestock=cattle;poultry;pig + opening_hours

My second guess would be to use produce=cattle;poultry;pig, although
that does not convey that we are talking about living creatures.

If a farmers' market is also taking place in the same area (and it is
not possible to map it separately), it is possible to add that as

amenity=marketplace + marketplace=livestock;farmers +
livestock=cattle;poultry;pig + opening_hours

We'd probably need to come up for a naming to use on a "common",
non-farmers' market as well, this could be marketplace=common or
mixed, and it should be implied by default.

> “building” is about the building, not the feature (function), landuse is a property of the land. From the above I would go with amenity, similar to amenity=marketplace which by its current generic definition might also apply: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dmarketplace
