La agroindustria láctea en el Uruguay 1911- 1943
AbstractDomestic market growth and urbanization encouraged the agricultural and industrial dairy production. This labour-intensive product played a strategic role in the batllist agenda. This paper studies the dairy farm production and dynamics as well as the causes of its stagnation. The public policies towards the sector are specially considered, particularly the ones related to the sanitary conditions. Another issue under examination relates to the creation of the first pasteurization plants in Montevideo and the state's role in creating Conaprole, an entity in charge of regulating the production in the country.
