Have you considered using the config cascade to hold 'master' lists.  One for 
the animal and one for the farmer (or as many as the admin wants) - equivalent 
to local & protected in the normal scheme of things.  Those files being stored 
in appropriate conf directories where they are human editable for those people 
who don't like allowing configurations to be auto-updated.
