There are some shops that focus on selling animal feed and other farming supplies. For example, Linnton Feed and Seed. I'm trying to find a good tag for this and similar stores. I'm thinking maybe one of the following tags:

Hi Peter, since a vet knows only pets, large (stock and so on) or small (cats and dogs and anything else) use the tags youve mentioned.

You don't have to shoe-horn it into a commonly used tag. Something like shop=animal_feed would work, if that's what it is. If you search taginfo for e.g. "feed" you'll get other options (all fairly rarely used).

I think shop=animal_feed may be too obscure. There are only 4 global occurrences and these types of shops that supply farms are actually fairly common, especially as you go into more rural areas.

If it has a small number of values but you believe it is more common, then use the most appropriate tag. (I would agree shop=animal_feed is much better than shop=agriculture for this purpose.) The document the usage on the wiki & you'll be surprised to discover how many people know of such places but never found the right tag.

Update: It looks like the consensus is now to use shop=trade with trade=agriculural_supplies.

Where does this consensus come from?

I'm not convinced that implies "feed". Looking at the usage, the two examples closest to me are and , which are and . The first majors on lawnmowers, the second does sell feed but also the full "country stores" range.

@SomeoneElse would completely agree with this. "Country Stores" are really common in East Mids: there are a couple in Melton & at least one in Oakham. They are retail, not trade outlets: and I suspect a typical customer is someone with a few acres of paddock for their horses. Product mix is diverse: clothing, pet supplies, animal feed etc.
