This is not your typical lazy cow; but a model which accurately depicts a rather alert Holstein cow taking a well earned rest.
The model cow lying down on the job has metal lugs attached to her body to enable her to be secured to any surface she is positioned on. The type of surface is immaterial. It could be grass, in which tent pegs could be used, alternatively if it is a solid surface, the model cow can be bolted or screwed down to secure her.
Incidentally, this cow is one of the few fibreglass bovine models which we stock possessing horns.
As with all these cow models, the lying cow can easily be customised. This can be undertaken by our own artist working to a brief; or clients` can paint these ladies themselves. A standard acrylic paint is all that is required along with a little imagination.
This plastic cow is equally at home indoors or outside.
Irish Kerry Cow
For this commission, the clients requested that the animal model be converted into a rare Kerry Cow. Following a series of discussions, we established a detailed brief from the client as to how the Kerry Cow should look. Our artist then completed an accurate interpretation to the delight of the clients. The cow now lies proudly on public display in Ireland.
Yazoo Promo Cow
A major dutch dairy company believes that successful innovations are a key method to developing growth and increasing sales within a brand.
In order to promote one of their dairy products, a themed “Big Kidz” tour was organised to market the brand throughout the UK. This involved the conversion and customising of two VW camper vans by a company specialising in promotional vehicle concepts.
Prior to conversion, we received artist`s impressions in order to ensure the lying cow met the clients` requirements.
Both vans underwent complete makeovers; being totally resprayed and branded. The second van was then “re-sized” and one of our lying cows was bolted down securely onto the roof. A drawbar was fitted to this one, in order for it to be towed by the other.
The model cow had also undergone a transformation since delivery, to compliment similar cow designs which were part of a national advertising campaign.
The Big Kidz Roadshow was a huge success in promoting a brand which stands for fun, great taste and good health; the life size funny cow on the roof contributing to this image.

Star Gazing Cows
Not to be outdone, our standing cow models back at the store decided that they could easily perform a lying down pose for the photographer – however we did not expect them to lie on their backs with their feet in the air….
All of our life-size animal models are made of high quality polyester resin & fibre-glass. And the excellent life-size cattle models are one of our most popular ranges. As dairy farmers with lifelong experience of working with real dairy cattle, we felt qualified to design the life size replica cows; especially as we still have ready-made real models running around the fields on the family farm.
Based on the ideal milking cow, their resemblance is the closest to any real bovine in the world. Please take time to compare our cow models to others on the internet; and you will see quite clearly that they are far superior in terms of size, detail and confirmation. Check out the measurements – others are only a fraction of the size and scale of real dairy cows.
Our life-size standing model cow comes in two positions; either head-up or grazing with her head down. Through experience with plastic cows over the years; and unlike other inferior cattle models; a feature which we now specify as standard is metal spars moulded between the front and back legs. We have found that this provides far greater strength, as well as added security since holes are bored through the spars in order to peg or bolt down the model onto any surface.
There is also a lying-down cow model (as featured above), and a lying down cow bench, which have metal lugs attached underneath to be used to secure the models onto the ground.
In addition there`s a calf model which is great on its own; or ideal as a companion to other cattle models to make a family cow group. This is another animal model which we are frequently having to modify for various clients.
We supply the cow models as standard Friesian or Holstein cattle or simply plain white – so that you can paint your own. However should you wish another breed of cattle or even totally different design, branding or modification; our artist will be only too happy to work to your brief. Various examples can be found in the Gallery. Length of lead times obviously depend on what is required; however we are well used to working to deadlines; so please just ask.
Likewise the bull models are available to order in black, black and white and brown and white.
Our models can be found not only across the UK; but widespread over all the continents. And the uses of the models is so varied. This is perfectly illustrated in the gallery where individual clients mix with zoos, science museums, marketing companies, dairy businesses, cheese companies, charities and children`s farm attractions.
These 3D model cows will not only enhance your stand at a trade-show or exhibition; but will have huge impact for any farm-shop, coffee shop, animal-feed store looking for a unique method to advertise.
The high quality of the detail in the modelling, would fit into any woodland, countryside or farm yard setting, themed area or in shops, businesses, pubs, restaurants, adventure golf courses, theme parks or even in your own garden.
We recommend that all the animal models which are going to be used outdoors be coated with a transparent gloss of UV resistant varnish, but we would advise where possible placing the models inside during winter months.
