The main idea behind the quiz is that each day (from 1st to the 23rd ) a question is posted (we will also put them on this page each day so you can join in anytime). ALL questions will be based on content from CSUK (posts and comments) although many of the answers can be found elsewhere too. It is all designed to be a bit of fun, not too serious but a way of celebrating the fantastic range of topics we have so far discussed in the FB group!!
Answers to be sent to Jack Smellie via a Facebook PM or email jack@celebratingsmallholdinguk.org.uk) during the period between Christmas and New Year. In the New Year itself, winners will be announced.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE.

1st: What is a wind egg?
2nd: What good news was announced in November regarding Ash dieback?
3rd: Lots of us have been celebrating coloured sheep bums this autumn? Why?
4th: Derek Pool’s amazing pie picture and recipe (part of our #FoodToSustainUs week), has been one of our top posts so far: what were the three main ingredients?
5th: What is a 'lock' with reference to a sheep and name a breed that has them?
6th: Tracie Martin has posted pictures of Hookbills and Overbergs – these are breeds of what?

8th: What is a wedder (in relation to livestock)?
9th: Sarah Leech took an amazing photo of a circumhorizontal arc in November - what is a circumhorizontal arc?
10th: Which breed of goat is more commonly used for meat as opposed to dairy?
11th: Which tree is a favourite for smallholders because it is fast growing, can be used to make a variety of structures, favours damp conditions, is adored as a food by most stock and because the bark contains salicin (coverts to salicylic acid) and so is believed to provide pain relief/ anti-inflammatory support?
12th: Some livestock medications are known as POM-V medicines – what does POM-V stand for and what does it mean in practical terms?
13th: What type of animal is a 'Torddu'?
14th: What was announced by DEFRA on 10th December that sent poultry keepers into a bit of a panic?

To win, all answers must be correct. Winners will then be awarded as follows:
All entries with 100% correct answers will be put in a hat and names then drawn out one at a time, each winner will be asked to choose a prize (within 24 hours) and once their choice is made, the next name will be pulled from the hat and asked to choose from the remaining prizes. This will continue until no prizes are left.
IF, we don't get enough 100% winners to match the number of prizes, we may consider offering prizes to anyone who achieved over 95%, or 90% (again, depending on numbers).
Some prizes are specific to a location (e.g. courses), this may result in prizes being ‘left over’ – if this is the case we may run a ‘bonus question’ round for anyone who wishes to bid for one!

To take part in this quiz, you MUST be a member of the Celebrating Smallholding UK Facebook group

Each prize being offered 'may' come with its own terms and conditions - we hope that both parties (those donating and those fortunate enough to win a prize) will ensure these are understood before prizes are accepted.
