The cattle are a predominantly red breed, but also come in red and white as well as a blend of the two colours known as “roan”.They have a strong link to the north-east, as they were developed and were prolific in the region up until the 1960's, when the black and white Holstein was introduced to the country and gained favour for its higher milk yield.
The Ayrshire breed originated from South West Scotland and was first recorded in the 1870’s This breed is any shade of red or brown including mahogany and white.
With a presence in the United Kingdom dating back more than 80 years, Safran is the partner of choice for customers in the Aerospace and defense markets.
However while others were changing their breed of dairy cow we remained loyal to the breed which has served us so well, believing in “quality over quantity”.
Because we do not consider high levels of milk production as a primary goal but consider overall condition and quality of our cows of greater importance, this is reflected in the overall welfare of our animals.
Driven by our core values of Scoring as a Team, Daring to Innovate, Empowering People, Leading by Example, and Embarking on a Shared Vision, Safran companies play a driving role in our main markets in the UK.
