    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 19th century Dutch butter was losing its reputation. After the introduction of margarine about 1870, some dishonest merchants took the opportunity to sell an adulterated article as pure butter. Although the amount of adulterated butter was a small fraction of total output, it did great harm to the Dutch butter trade abroad.

Many farmers were slow in adopting the more scientific methods of dairying practised on large farms in Denmark.

The depreciation of the butter became a challenge for the government and for dairy farmers. Butter Control Stations under government supervision were readily founded all over the country and farmers who entered the scheme of supervision were allowed to use a government buttermark, guaranteeing that the butter was pure. A parallel control system was made for cheese production. At the same time, production methods were improved by agricultural education.

The Government marks succeeded in greatly enhancing the reputation of the Dutch butter and cheese.

About the beginning of the 20th century factories gradually took over the production of dairy products from the farmer.
