More on weathering cows. The cows were weathered using Modelmates Mud Brown weathering liquid. It is very easy to use. It is water soluble but dries like ink. To weather the cows I just painted it on and then let it down with a wet brush until I had the colouring I wanted. The cattle dock is weathered using the pastels method.  Perhaps I need more cows in there?

Love it.  You shoould also have weathered the cattle pen. 

You'll need a few dollops of thick cowpat brown for that!

The ratio cattle dock kit includes a couple of very small cow pats! They are not in place at the moment. It is however weathered in various ways including to look like it has been lime washed (which was common practise).

They did that with the cattle wagons too but I understand the practice ceased at some date, though I couldn't tell you when.

I haven't seen evidence of lime in modern lorries or cattle pens used at auction markets, I think they are simply pressure washed now.
