there are many interesting properties that could be tagged with regard to animal keeping, e.g. the kind of cowshed (e.g. distinguishing between cattle in chains and freely moving), or even more if you think about chicken.

Is someone already tagging the EU reference numbers for farmyards with organic production certification? It has to be labeled on the produce and would be cool if you could search on the map where your eggs or steak come from ;-)
