Greenland 2005 Europa stamp (sc 445) featuring a cut of musk ox. Looks quite rare, slightly seared on the outside if at all.



Several other nations' 2005 Europa stamps also featured meat, of which I will give two examples.
Here's a nicely-done skewer from Portuguese Madiera:



and Gibraltar issued the following "rolitos de ternera" or "veal birds" together with three other stamps that are for the moment irrelevant which featured fish, a dessert, and a spinach pie.

Almost a still life in a butcher's shop for the food and farming year, 1989.

(Interesting, the musk ox cuts, I didn't know that this species was hunted; the dark color may be due to the dense vascularization of the meat which also accounts for the high content of iron. K.)

In Portugal hogs can wander about under the old oak trees and graze and feed on acorns which gives Portuguese ham a unique flavor. 2012

Willem Claesz Heda (1594-1680) was a Dutch painter of still lifes. He must have rearranged the items on the breakfast table several times because the motif is seen in many of his works. "Breakfast Table with a Ham", painting in the Museum of Schwerin; DDR 1982. Photo of another Heda breakfast table.

The "Belgian Blue" is a breed of cattle frequently seen grazing out on pastures in Belgium and northern France. It is raised primarily for beef. There is a mutant among Belgian Blue which causes the animals to grow so much muscle mass that you wonder how they can stand; it's called "double muscling". The ones shown in the stamp of 2012 are fairly normal.

The first fleet of 11 ships leaving England for Australia in the spring of 1787 stopped at the cape of Good Hope to load supplies as well as livestock of all sorts for the new colony. They arrived in Botany Bay in January 1788. Thus began the story of Australia as a continent of farmers growing beef cattle and sheep.

I just found this cancel while sorting a big box of kiloware. In Iowa, we would call this a "pig roast." Perhaps Kris Rascher has more details on the meaning of this cancel?
