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.
Milk production is a very important part of Dutch agriculture. From the great interest in the factors that affect milk production and milk marketing, various important studies ensued about 1950. Sevenster compared the results of these studies. He gave some estimates for the milk consumption and production over a period of 10 years (1950-60). He found that the Netherlands had some advantages in the production of cheese and that the consumption of cheese was important for nutrition and national health; so he recommended increase in cheese production. Sevenster also found that production of butter was less profitable. These findings accorded with trends in Dutch agriculture. The capacity of the industry for cheese, condensed milk and milk powder expanded in that period especially on the sandy soils. It seemed desirable to promote this expansion to such an extent that butter production would become independent of seasonal fluctuations in milk production.
