DAIRY MATTERS.

THE AYRSHIRE. The Ayrshire cows are justly celebrated throughout this country and Great Britain for their excellent dairy purposes. Though the most recent in their origin, they are pretty distinct from other Scotch and English races. In color, the pure Ayrshires are generally red and white, spotted or mottled, not roan, like many of the Short-horns, but often presenting a bright contrast of colors. The head is small, fine and clean. The face is long and narrow at the muzzle, with a sprightly, yet generally mild expression. The eye is small, smart and lively. The horns are short and slightly twisted upward, set wide apart at the roots. The neck is thin. The body is enlarging from fore to hind quarters. The back is straight and narrow, but broad across the loin. The ribs are rather flat. The joints are rather loose and open. The hind quarters are thin. The teats of the cow are of medium size, and set wide apart. The milk veins are always very prominent and generally well developed.

On the whole, the Ayrshires are good-looking, but want some of the symmetry and aptitude to fatten which characterize the Short-horn, and which is supposed to have built up this valuable breed on the basis of the original stock of the county of Ayr, a county extending along the eastern shore of the Frith of Clyde, in the southwestern part of Scotland, and divided into three districts, known as Carrick, Cunningham and Kyle; the first famous as the lordship of Robert Bruce, the last for the production of this, one of the most remarkable dairy breed of cows in the world. These cattle are naturally hardy and active and capable of enduring severe winters and of easily regaining condition with the return of spring and good feed. They have been known to produce over ten gallons of milk in a day.

It is the opinion of good breeders that a high-bred Short-horn bull and a large-sized Ayrshire cow will produce a calf which will come to maturity earlier and attain greater weight and sell for more money than a pure-bred Ayrshire. This cross, with feeding from the start, may be sold fat at two or three years old, the improvement being especially seen in the early maturity and the size.

In this cross with the Short-horn, the form becomes ordinarily more symmetrical, while there is, perhaps, little risk of lessening the milking, quality of
