Cattle Society of Great Britain and Ireland


Become a member - Reasons to register

Society membership provides the opportunity for like minded people to be part of a national and global organisation where the common interest is the promotion and the welfare of the Ayrshire cow.  Please see below for the official membership handbook.

Support your Society

By registering your stock you will be supporting the Ayrshire Cattle Society - the organisation that encompasses all breed activities. The Society and subsequently the breed's success is solely dependent on your involvement.


Registering your stock allows you to fulfil much more from cattle breeding, opening the door to type classification, qualifying for special Society awards and to take part in national shows or competitions.


Pedigree certificates give maximum information on milk records, type classification and pedigree history allowing you to identify the profitable from the non-profitable breeding lines.

Increased Value

Pedigree status greatly enhances the value of stock giving extra security to owners. Registered cattle have no ceiling value.

Merit Schemes

Registered pedigree Ayrshires carry considerable distinction in themselves. An important part of the work of the Ayrshire Cattle Society is to give greater recognition, through its Merit Schemes, to those animals which have further distinguished themselves in type and production, giving promise of breeding superior animals in the future.
