ORIGIN OF AYRSHIRE BREED
Scotch Cattle Are Quick, Brisk and

Tho Ayrshire breed originated In
the county of Ayr, In southwestern
Scotland. In that region, which bor

rolling and has much rough woodland.
Pastures, therefore, nro somewhat
sparse and It Is necessary for nnlnmls
to graze Inrge areas In order to ob
tain sufficient feed.

years that Ayrshlres have had a type
well enough established to be entitled
to the designation of breed. No exact
account of the different Infusions of
blood of other breeds Into the nnllve
Scotch cattlo to form the Ayrshire
breed Is at hand. It Is prohnble. bow
ever, that the Channel Islands, Dutch
and English cnttlo were all repre
