Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands
The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.
Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.
The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.
As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".
All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.
The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.
At the end of the 1920's the opinion was current that livestock in the Netherlands were being fed too freely, so that there was a significant waste of fodder, animal production too dear.The study showed that according to the number of livestock and their production, and the amount of feedstuff exported and imported, there was only a slight waste or none at all. Kooy looked for reasons for the currency of the opinion and for the contrary result of the calculation. He examined 4 questions: whether production of feedstuffs within the Netherlands should be higher than statistics reported; whether livestock production in the Netherlands should be lower than the statistics said; whether feeding standards for the livestock should be too high; and whether the nutritive value of the feeding should be judged too low.The study demonstrated that losses in storage and in the course of supply were too little appreciated and that feeding was uneven from one season of the year to another.
