Beef cattle is featured in the 1998 Farming in Australia issue (five designs).

Here's a cover mailed in Minotola NJ in 1953 sent by a gentleman who raises Minorca chickens.
Interestingly it carries the 1948 Poultry Industry stamp shown on page 2 of this thread.



Coincidence? or does Mr Costa have a sense of humour? I suspect this cover was philatelic in nature. While the envelope is empty is it still sealed and appears never to have been opened.

Oh, and this is a Minorca

The seal of the butcher's trade (Fleischer) was awarded to a butcher who had passed the training and exams of the butcher's guild. This tradition goes way back to the middle ages and is still in place today, insuring that a person in a special trade has proper skills and schooling. I found a scan of an antique "Meisterbrief" on the web; that kind of certificate is to be displayed in the shop of a trades person. stamp of 1988

U.S. Internal Revenue License for Oct 1, 1864-May 1, 1865 issued to Bradbury & Hunt of Abington, Indiana ... to carry on the business or occupation of "Butcher to sell from cart", paid a 2.92 tax, thus another way the government helped pay for the civil war.

StateRevs, Thanks. I seem to recall there is a companion piece from the year before or after in Hicks' volume: "Civil War Occupational Licenses, 1863-73: A History and Catalog".

This is an example of New Zealand humor - the Kiwi is serving a national dish: meat pie for the new millennium. 2000 You can buy them in almost any size.

This Spekhöker is taking a break from the morning's work. A Spekhöker is a pork butcher - perhaps it's a leg of ham just behind him. He has probably made an assortment of sausages and also has cheeses and eggs. A set of stamps showing traditional trades, 1989. A scan of the original from the web.

Danish ham is known for its high quality and one of the best dishes is "Aebleflaesk", pork prepared with apples and perhaps potatoes. Artwork idea by Claus Meyer, a well-known Danish cook.
