It's Time to Have some Fun with Farming
The first edition of Western Canadian Farm Trivia Challenge became an extremely popular Canadian Bestseller. The completely updated second edition promises to continue entertaining farmers and city slickers alike.
The 192-page book tests your knowledge on important (as well as completely frivolous) details on farming in the west – the crops we grow, the livestock we raise, our markets which span the globe, the glories of the good old days, and the realities of farming today.
Western Canada is the world’s largest producer and exporter of several crops – do you know which ones? Which countries buy our stuff (some of the answers may surprise you)? How much does a farmer get paid for the barley that goes into one bottle of beer (hint: it ain’t much)? What about the amount of methane gas emitted by a 1000-pound cow (hint: lots!)? Answers to these and over 340 other intriguing questions are revealed in Western Canadian Farm Trivia Challenge.
Western Canadian Farm Trivia Challenge - Second Edition is available for $16.95 from bookstores, or directly from Parkland Publishing.
