Suomalainen Aryshirekarja
(local/other name)

(most common name):
Ayrshire
(local/other name):
• Suomen Ayrshire
also named (English):
Finnish Ayrshire

• Finsk Ayrshire

The Suomalainen Aryshirekarja of today is the result of crossing imported Scottish Ayrshires over the years with:
• native Finncattle
• the Norwegian Red
• the Danish Red
• the Angeln
• the Shorthorn
• the Jersey
Dutch-Friesian cattle

All this crossing has given the Suomalainen Aryshirekarja of Finland a higher milk yield and a better developed udder than the Ayrshires of Scotland.
