1/64 farm animals

All the 1/64 scale livestock made by Ertl

I get it. Tractors are cool. That’s what we’re all here for. At least, in part. There’s other cool stuff out there too. So now you’ve got all these tractors. You’ve even bought some implements to put behind those tractors (I hope you bought a few of mine!). Maybe you’ve even built a very nice layout to display your tractors and implements in their “natural habitat.” But tractors are handy for more than just running down the rows of a field or turning an auger. You decided to expand your farming operation to include 1/64 scale livestock.

I agree: a good farmer has livestock as well as row crops. It’s a good way to hedge your bets. If you follow the markets it seems like there’s always one side that’s on the upside, whether it’s grain or livestock. So you put up a shed, put some fence around the stockyard, and placed the feeders and water troughs in all the right places. Now what? Well, you gotta get some animals!

What 1/64 Scale Animals Should I Get?

Well, I can’t answer that. OK, I could, but that answer (ALL OF THEM!) might not fit with your layout and the direction you want it to go. But I can tell you what animals there are out there. Or at least what I’ve been able to find. Maybe you’ve found some that I missed. If you did, let me know. I always need more animals for my layout. I like options.

Ertl Made A Bunch!

I’m not sure of too many options you couldn’t get from Ertl at one point or another. Last I checked they aren’t making very many anymore. But at one point they pretty much ran the entire gamut of 1/64 scale livestock.

How many animals are there in a gamut? Well, I don’t think there’s an empirical measurement equivalent. And I’m no zoological expert, but I do know for a fact that they made eight types of animals: cattle, horses, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, geese, and even dogs.

And they made a few variations of most of them. Mainly different colors of the same molds, such as making pink, red, and black and white pigs. (I believe those last two breeds are Duroc and Hampshire, but again I’m not a zoologist.) Horses also came in various colors, and various poses. Some even have saddles on them, for the various western/ranch, rodeo, and stable playsets.

The most wide variety of animals Ertl made was in the cattle herd. I’ve seen feeders and dairy varieties, as well as a longhorn variety (again, for the western/ranch sets). There are also a few bulls made specifically for the rodeo playset.

They also made babies! (Get your mind out of the gutters.) The horses had colts available, as well as calves for the cattle. The pigs also had piglets, but they’re really hard to find, mainly because they’re so small and were easily lost. There were also sows feeding a row of piglets that were sold as part of the hog confinement playsets, but likewise they are rare.

As of this writing the dairy cattle are still being produced, in two color variations. They also make a few horses, in smaller sets. I believe they’ve discontinued all the other animals. If you’re lucky you’ll find some at the toy shows.

Other Resources for Livestock

Once again, the model railroading community has a lot of things we can use in our attempts to build awesome layouts. Our 1/64th scale farm toys match up with S scale trains perfectly. The National Association of S Gaugers has a very long list of resources on their website, which you can visit through this link. It’s a very long list, but there are quite a few of the links listed that go to manufacturers and dealers that sell 1/64 scale livestock.

Farm Factor 3D has dairy and feeder cattle available on their website, in various positions. Very nice looking pieces too. There are also a lot of animals available via the Shapeways Marketplace. I would suggest that you read descriptions carefully there. Some makers offer the same animal in various sizes, in order to fit various scale displays.

I’d also look into downloading some plans and making your own, if you have a 3D printer available to you (and if you do, I’m rather jealous.) I haven’t looked into it, but there are some makers who will sell (or even share for free) their designs as long as it’s for your own use. I don’t recommend you try selling them though. That’s a whole lot of legal stuff that I’m not qualified to help you with, and to be honest I’m not sure I’d be much help anyway.

Not Just 1/64 Scale Livestock

Having livestock on your farm is a great way to add some interesting action to your farm scene. But it’s not just animals you need to have on your farm. There’s a lot of things you have to have to keep your herds and flocks “alive.”

Livestock are a lot like children. They need a lot of “stuff”. Animals require shelter, so you have to have buildings. They also require a lot of fence to keep the predators away. Fence is also important because it’ll keep you prized dairy cows Lulu and Betsy from eating all your field corn.

Speaking of eating, animals require some, you know, food. You’ll also need feeders to put that food in, depending on your feeding setup. Water troughs and founts are also a requirement, because your animals enjoy a tasty beverage on a hot day.

All of these items are available from various vendors. Most of the same sources you use for your 1/64 scale livestock will have most, if not all of these things available. It’s like one stop shopping! I’ll likely do another blog post in the future about some or all of those items, if there’s enough demand for it.

So if you’d like to read more about this subject, here’s the part where you demand it! Or if you have other subjects you’d like me to write about, demand that too! Drop me a note, comment below, or hit me up on the social media channels. And if you have pictures of your livestock setups, feel free to share them with me directly or put them on our Facebook group, Looks Like Farm Toy Enthusiasts.

Remember to hit it hard and take it easy. Keep on farming, folks.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • Question: its 1/64?

    Answer: yes; 1/64 scale.
  • Question: what are the dimensions?

    Answer: It is a cute set - smaller than it looks. It is about 16 inches and maybe 10 inches high ( give or take and inch) It is made of a hard plastic (so kind of brittle - easier to break). the figurines that come with it are maybe 2inch high. My kids have another farm set they got from Campbell Supply and it was 1.5 times bigger and you can use bigger farm animals. Another idea would be to go to a craft show during the holidays and you maybe able to find a wood builder who makes a nice wooden barn, etc..
  • Question: Is this compatible with Bryer barns and horse toys - or is the size too different?

    Answer: No, the cows that come with this are @1 inch tall about @2 long.
  • Question: Is there tractors

    Answer: There are no tractors included in this set.
  • Question: What brand of animals should I buy that will be the right size for this set?

    Answer: the barn is a 1/64 scale so if you want the animals to be the correct size 1/64 scale animals.
  • Question: Would this be compatible size for O scale trains? I see the dimensions but what is 14'' or which part is 5'', etc? Tall, wide, deep?

    Answer: This barn measures 11 3/4 inches from long end to end at barn roof - one side has small area (with a roof that come off) - the height of the barn is 9" at the peak and is 7 3/4 inches wide on short side (door sides). I am not familiear with O scale trains. Hope this answer helps.
  • Question: how does it open?

    Answer: You have to take the roof off to access the inside of it.
  • Question: does ertl sell just the barns I need them for our grandkids we still have all the fences,cows,pigs you name it just need the barns?

    Answer: Not sure - I was looking for the whole set.

Hard to keep together and small peices

While I was excited to gift this to my farm loving child. While the contents were as described the quality of the barn pieces and accessories was very poor. I know this won't last long with any kind of hard play. The cows are small and the barn itself has a hard time staying together once assembled. Please make this with a thicker plastic and larger to help encourage longer pretend play possible.

So cute! Perfect with the Ertl Case tractors and Thomas trains!

This is model quality ! For an almost 4 year old, we left the tiny parts out and keep the roof detachable so he can run the tractors inside and out. Mine was a damaged box item from the warehouse but no problems at all. I got all the correct pieces and it went/stays together no problem. We pretend it is part of Sodor and carry the cows in Thomas the Train. :) BUY IT!!

1/64 Farm Display Shop Details

Barta Livestock builds more than toys with scale-model livestock

Zach Barta, the son of a ranchhand growing up in the Nebraska Sandhills, has always dreamed of quality livestock and, like many of us ag kids growing up in the ’90’s, spent his youth playing with 1/64th Ertl Farm Country sets. But as he grew older the lack of lifelike poses bothered him and he started cutting the toys apart to remodel them, which eventually led to sculpting from scratch. Barta has always been an artist, so drawing and sculpting lifelike animals was a logical step. He became a ranch hand along the way, which gave him plenty of reference animals to work from. “I’ve always dreamed of owning some of the best stock available. I guess this is my way of doing that on a more manageable scale.” Barta said.

Barta now lives in Utah, where his job in the oil field working a rotating schedule of a week on and a week off gives him the ability to pursue his passion of creating livestock models. Two years ago he branched out into digital design and sculpting. With the use of 3D printers he is able to replicate his designs with ease and make them available to the public. He has partnered with experienced designers from around the world to bring his animals to life. The designers are freelance and work by commission; they are all mostly more cartoon/fictional designers so it takes a lot of work to achieve the realistic replica that Barta is trying to achieve. Hundreds of emails, messages and photos are exchanged for each model. Once the animal is designed Barta takes it and works on fine details to achieve the realism he is wanting. He is hoping soon to have his own tablet to where he can do all of his own designing rather than working through others. The printing process has allowed him to mass-produce his designs and expand the sizes and varieties.

The three-dimensional printed animals are 1/64th of actual size but custom sizes are available. They are made of a poly resin that is fairly brittle which is needed to achieve the realistic characteristics of each animal, so currently these are more of collector or display items than toys.

“I can’t settle for anything less than completely realistic, everything but the heartbeat.” Barta said. “I put several hundred hours into each animal; my wife jokes that if I weren’t such a perfectionist, it wouldn’t take half as long or cost half as much. That’s where me not settling for anything short of realistic comes in.”

The base price is about $10 per unpainted animal, which is mostly materials and handling. Barta offers many custom options, including painting and applying the customer’s brand. He can make specific animals to match a photo as well. Most of his creations presently are sold to collectors. He is constantly working on new designs and plans to soon be offering both Quarter and Draft horse models. Barta hopes to one day offer all species of livestock and equipment to go along with them. He has many different breeds of cattle available including Angus, Hereford, Longhorn and Brahmas. He will paint them any way the buyer wishes or they can purchase unfinished models and paint them themselves. Though the standard size is 1/64 he also has made 1/87 for some collectors who wanted small animals for their model train displays. “I’ll make any size that a person wants if they are willing to pay for it.” Barta said.

Barta is fairly new to selling his models, by far his favorites are beef cattle and he has yet to really have any unique custom orders. Due to the newness of his business Zach has yet to have a full collection of his own. The most meaningful have been the animals he has given to some young collectors to get them started. The models were unfinished to help motivate the collectors to work on them and add character.

Barta Livestock’s animals are available from the web storefront at http://www.shapeways.com/shops/barta-livestock-1 or from him directly via his Facebook page, Barta Livestock @custom164livestock or by calling him at (435) 828-3269. If ordered unfinished the animals are shipped directly. Custom orders take a couple of months to fill. All the figures are produced in the United States and Barta is committed to maintaining that.

Barta has attended the National Farm Toy Show for the past two years in Dyersville, Iowa. Last year he was approached by some national toy manufacturers who are seeking to partner with Barta Livestock to use his designs to produce toy animals. Barta hopes that soon he will be able to offer a small line of durable animals that are something a kid can afford and will hold up to rough play. “I want to make the animals for those who will enjoy them the most,” Barta said.

Building livestock for the next generation is his goal. Zach Barta and his wife Sally Jo have three children with another one on the way. They are all very supportive of the business and the kids enjoy helping him build and select new projects. He is always open to ideas and thoughts and welcomes messages about his designs.
