Rogdcam - I knew you would do the cattle in the storm.

Folks have touched on doing what you want to do, but you do want to set some guidelines for yourself. You might eventually determine you want to expand for whatever reason, but it will help in your approach to things to be systematic.

As I saw the topic develop - which is a very good one, my first thought was whether poultry would be in -- or out. Your call, of course.... Here is US Scott 968 from 1948. A stamp which ignores a lot of poultry production from the pilgrims onward, but it is what it is.




I had an uncle who was a butcher. At big Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners hosted by my grandmother, he would always demur from carving the turkey, saying he'd been cutting meat all week. This put the onus on my father. After one side of the turkey was hacked up by dad, my uncle would say, "I might have another piece." and with a few deft movements he would carve the rest of the bird beautifully.... Butchery always has impressed me.

France had in 2008 a series on food.
Bread, oysters... oh, it was all so good.

Here is pot au feu featuring beef.

A stamp issued by Argentina in 1958 features a Ganaderia or cattle ranch. The cattle look like Herefords in a mixed herd.

(Dgwhite, the "Western Cattle in Storm" is historically very interesting, take a look at "The Vanguard" painting by the Scottish artist MacWirther. Makes that stamp quite special. K.)

Must have been quite a storm to move those Highland cattle from Scotland to the Mississippi!

The German stamp of 1987 is one in a set of "Trades". The butcher/sausage maker (Fleischer) is featured as he was seen in earlier times and as seen nowadays. The surcharge is for youth projects.

A topical can encompass history such as that illustrated in the New Zealand map, or even the history of various animal breeds. That reminded me of the large souvenir sheet featuring two ancient breeds which have again become popular. Both are known for high quality meat. D 2017 (For the photograph the animals stood on a kind of sheet, so the wrinkles are part of the picture.)
