generally I would expect a farmyard to contain several buildings with possibly many different animals, either outside of in buildings, so these tags often would not be associated with the farmyard but with parts of it. 

The tag building=farm_auxiliary is amongst the most popular building tags, but is very generic and could mean a stable, cowshed, pigsty, sheep pen, barn, henhouse, garage, etc. IMHO it would be desirable to be more specific at this level as well. 

While livestock is technically more precise, I would be fine with a generic and easy to understand, generic „animal“ tag as well.
