A short history of dairy farming and of butter production and trade in the Netherlands was given with fuller description of the then recent development of the butter and margarine industry and commerce. Special emphasis was laid on the adulteration of butter. The system of butter quality inspection, as it evolved in the course of time, was extensively described and discussed. Scientific, technical, administrative and economic aspects were considered, and the relative merits of different inspection systems were outlined. Finally, recommendations for future control were given and elucidated. The existing system of private inspection stations set up by the dairy industry, under statutory regulations and government supervision, was generally considered preferable.
