    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.

The actual distribution of breeds of dairy cattle in France did not accord with a planned agricultural economy. A study was made of the causes of this discrepancy.

Historical reasons were of great influence and curious measures had been taken to counteract the introduction of carefully selected breeds, adapted to modern agriculture methods.

With the introduction of artificial insemination under supervision of thoroughly instructed people Friesian cattle had increased their distribution as they were the only breed with sufficient number of good breeding males.
