I wonder why it's useless.
if the contributor does not know if they are cows or calves,
this allows him to enter "there are farm animals there" and any 
application can easily target for improvement (e.g. StreetComplete).
what would be useless is to force the contributor to be an expert in 
biology to inform "there are animals there".
it would be just as useless as trying to remove all the key=yes
that are the very basis of the incremental contribution,
one of power of osm

16% of landuse=farmyard have a anima=* tag.
I didn't understand what argument to hope that the
current most used tag would change in favor of a marginal tag.
