Natty Dread: I will fall off my chair if you ever like this map, because at it's core it is a simple dissection of a cow that tells people where their meat comes from.
But maybe one day I'll meat your approval. "No pun intended"

There has never been an intention to make a butcher shop map, the idea was and I believe approved, to make a map of a cow in a butcher shop setting. Please correct me if I'm wrong Thenobodies.
Fantastic comments from Koontz1973, I can work with those and especially like the chalk board idea listing the bonuses as prices.
I don't fully agree with all your suggestions but I like most of them, so I'll take it one step at a time and do what I can in the next draft.
In terms of the colors, the reason I put them in is so that you could tell what regions you needed, to get the bonuses clearly.
The cow itself needs to be clear and graphic so it's easy to play on. So I've stayed away from making it look photo-real.
Great comments from Bison King, and Gillipig too, and as always thanks for the help Thenobodies.
In fact thanks to everyone who has given me constructive feedback.
I was thinking of replacing the flies with a symbol of a delivery truck, like a logo for the people who made the map.
Replace the poo with a few bottles of milk, and I don't think having grass on the map is unrealistic. Consider it a little garnish to give the image that free range goodness ranchers want us consumers to have.
It terms of making it more butcher shop looking, There is one very easy thing you all seemed to over look that I could do to let people know the map was on the wall of a butcher shop.
Drum roll please..... Rename that map "Butcher Shop" or Butchers wall"
I will try thenobodies idea of adding a meat counter in the foreground, maybe some hanging meat too, but I don't want to clutter the map to much with window dressing just to sell the idea that it's in a butcher shop when the title will tell players all they need to know.
Anyway, a lot to think about.
