Cow and Calf Weathervane. Calves is the name given to young cattle. A young male is called bull a calf. Before a young female has calved a second time she is called a heifer.



Cow and Calf  Weathervane. An intimate moment between mother and calf captured permanently on this working weathervane. Mother cow is encouraging the calf to face away from the wind while heading right into it herself. Mothers do this sort of thing for their offspring.

For cows to produce milk, they have to give birth to a calf. … Some calves will be reared for veal and about three quarters of the heifers will become replacements for adult milk-producing cows. Heifer calves may also be reared and then exported to dairy farms overseas. Bobby calves may also be killed on farm. A bobby calf is:

  • No more than 30 days old.
  • usually weighs less than 80kg live weight.
  • Is commonly a dairy breed or cross.
  • Is sold for meat or reared for dairy-beef.

Approximately 400,000 bobby calves are processed each year in Australia supporting local jobs and providing a valuable protein resource.

This is the ideal present for someone that you know who wants to add that special something to their home. Perhaps even treat yourself.

Made of stainless steel this black Cow and Calf Weathervane will give years and years of enjoyment and service.

How It Works

Both the arrow and the cow and calf figures revolve on a ball bearing over a solid bushed stainless steel shaft. Well balanced and proportionally correct these Australian made weathervanes from Glenview Products actually work. The weathervane is powder-coated and like the early Ford motor vehicles, you can have any colour so long as it is black.


stainless steel mounting plate is available for fixing to a flat surface such as the ridge line of a metal roof or a wooden garden post. Alternatively there is a steel gable bracket available for fixing to the apex of the gable (see Fixing Brackets). If you would like to order a fixing bracket to suit this product, please select from the product options above. Fixing brackets ordered with an Aussie Weathervane will not incur any additional delivery charges.

Which one to use ?

Gable Bracket (Stainless Steel) is used for attaching to the face of the Gable. Suitable for both Tile and Metal Roofs. Because the shaft extends down the face of the Gable, it is 200mm longer than the ridge line bracket.

Stainless Steel Mounting Plate (supplied flat with laser cut slots to allow plate to be bent to the exact pitch of the roof). Used on the roof ridge of metal roofs. Also adaptable to flat surfaces and mounting on posts.

No Mounting Bracket when only the Weathervane is required. Purchasing the suitable bracket makes installation easy and enjoyable
