Special types of farmyards, such as Feedlots, can be distinguished from other farmyards by this tag, which is added to a farmyard feature tagged landuse=farmyard


  • farmyard=feedlot + landuse=farmyard for a feedlot (A feedlot or feed yard is a type of animal feeding operation which is used in intensive animal farming for finishing livestock, notably beef cattle)
  • farmyard=poultry + landuse=farmyard for a farmyard area used for raising poultry, usually chickens, for meat or eggs.
