What's the PURPOSE for a WEATHER VANE being atop a barn?

What I mean is, WHY does the farmer NEED TO KNOW from which direction the wind is blowing?

There's NOTHING s/he can do about it, right? So what difference does it make?

Weather Vanes today are mostly used for decoration. It brings back the time of years gone by. To many folks it will remind them of the one their grandfather or grandmother would have on their barn. We had a weather vane atop our barn, in my much younger day. Never did know why it was there, but my grandfather sure knew how to farm, so I guess he had a very good reason why it was.

Teacher: Alright class, who can tell me where to find a weather vane?

(Kids raise hands)

Teacher: Selena?

Selena: You could find a weather vane on top of a barn.

Teacher: That's right, very good. Now who can tell me what you find on top of a weather vane?

(Kids raise hands)

Teacher: Yes Danny?

Danny: On top of a weather vane you could find a cock.

Teacher: That's right, very good. And now who could tell me why there's a cock on top of a weather vane?

(Teacher stares at student)

Teacher: Jimmy?

Jimmy: What?

Teacher: Can you tell me why there's a cock on top of a weather vane?

Jimmy: Well because if you used a pussy, the wind would blow right through it.
