Gorgeous Galloway Calf Adoption

Gold Creek 5


If you love our gorgeous Galloway cows and calves, but actually owning one is out of the question - what do you do? You adopt a GOLD CREEK Galloway! 

If you live in a city or don't have the time, enough space or the... it doesn't matter. You can share in all the fun anyway. The adoption fee is only $30.00 - you don't get to take the real calf home but you are invited to visit. You will get an adoption certificate, access to all the calf journals, photos, videos and information you could ever want online and an official invitation to visit your calf. Click here for the adoption details. For an extra $20.00 we will send you your very own limited edition, custom plush Banjo or Huggie mascot as well. That's right, an adoption and a mascot for only $50.00! (postage within Australia included).

Farm animal shelters, Sanctuaries & Rescue

Profits from our calf adoption program, including mascot sales, will help support farm animal shelters, sanctuaries and rescue organisations in Australia.

We now have a fun new website for kids and all the people who adopt our calves. The new website is a bit of fun for people young and old who want to learn more about these wonderful cows and their calves.

The  Calf Adoption  Process

Banjo FB 332jp

Adopting gorgeous Galloway calves is a great experience for everyone involved.

Children love to learn all the 'ins and outs' of the calves as they grow up. Kids can even adopt a cow or a bull if they like - they live pretty interesting lives too.

The bonus of a Huggie or a Banjo mascot of their very own now makes adoptions irresistible - yes it is a deliberate ploy to get the kids in!

Adults are finding adopting a calf to be a very positive experience too. The whole family gets to get to find out everything about the real calves as they grow up.

Our calves have been adopted as a gift to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and as Christmas presents. The person who has adopted the calf is formally invited to visit the calves at the farm and get their boots dirty if they like. If the adoption was a gift then the gift giver is also welcome - the calves love visitors.

Why  Do  We  Do  It?

Our cattle want for nothing. Sadly, not all animals are so lucky. For all sorts of reasons, there are farm animals in Australia finding themselves in need of some help. Our calf adoption program, including mascot sales, now help support farm animal shelters, sanctuaries and farm animal rescue organisations in Australia.

Plus, we love interacting with the wonderful people who adopt our calves and who give these adoptions as gifts. It provides us with an opportunity to 'meet' great people, to share the joy of owning these gorgeous cattle and educate more people about our amazing Miniature White Galloway cattle (and cattle in general).

People with adopted calves love seeing the photos and stories of all the happenings in the paddocks. One girl adopted a calf, and now that little one has just had a calf of her own. So adoption can be quite an adventure for everyone.

The best part of AAT training is making sure the heifers love contact with humans. TwoDee certainly loves it!
