Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Mozzarella cheese is traditionally made in Italy - not the Great Plains - from the milk of which animal?

Answer: Buffalo

Mozzarella cheese is made from the milk of the Italian Mediterranean Buffalo, believe it or not! While there is still discussion among scholars as to how the buffalo came to Italy - some say Crusaders brought it back with them and others says that invaders introduced the species to Italy - the animal was originally used there as a beast of burden. Today it is used to produce buffalo milk, which then is made into mozzarella cheese, and is sometimes eaten for meat. Of course, most Americans associate the cheese with toppings on pizza!
2. According to the song what was the name of Benny Hill's fastest milkman in the west? He shares a name with actor Hudson and baseball player Banks.

Answer: Ernie

Bennie Hill first performed "Ernie (The Fastest Milkman in the West)" in 1970 on television; the song was subsequently released as a single in 1971. The song tells the story of Ernie Price, a fictional milkman who delivers milk in a horse drawn milk cart.

He is involved in a bit of a competition with Ted, who delivers bread. Both are vying for the affection of a widow named Sue. One afternoon, after Ted spots Ernie's cart outside Sue's home, the two men engage in a duel, throwing items from their delivery carts at each other. Ernie is killed when he is hit in the heart by a rock cake, which allows for Ted and Sue to marry. Are they, however, haunted by Ernie's ghost? The song is said to have been inspired by Hill's experiences as a milkman.

It reached Number One on the UK charts in December 1971.
3. Which strong cheese that looks a bit spoiled is made from ewe's milk and named after a town in France?

Answer: Roquefort

Even though the moldy appearance of Roquefort cheese is a tad off-putting, it is delicious! And, mind you, all blue cheese is NOT Roquefort. In order to have that name the cheese must be aged in the Combalou caves of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon, according to European Union law. Popular since ancient Roman times, the cheeses of France were mentioned in the writings of Pliny the Elder in 79 AD. Since then, scholars have argued whether it was Roquefort cheese as it is known today or something else. Nevertheless, Roquefort cheese was a recognized product of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon by 1411, when the king of France, Charles VI, gave the town a monopoly on the production of Roquefort cheese.

The town is also known for the production of meat and wool.
4. Which wartime leader said 'There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies'?

Answer: Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill made this statement in a radio speech on March 21, 1943. In his speech, Churchill was outlining a four-year plan for England, which looked forward to the end of the war and the rebuilding of Europe. Producing food for people whose land had been ravaged by war was a primary concern.

He went on to say, "Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have. One of the most somber anxieties which beset those who look thirty or forty or fifty years ahead, and in the field one can see ahead only too clearly, is a dwindling birth rate". Yes, he did advocate that people should consider having larger families! But he also warned that the war wasn't over yet, and people needed to address the situation at hand, as well as plan for the future.
5. Who was the UK Education Secretary when free school milk was stopped for primary school children? I guess she knew that milk was a poor source of IRON.

Answer: Margaret Thatcher

Later she became the Iron Lady, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, but in 1971, she was known as "Thatcher, Thatcher, milk snatcher". Why did she make the unpopular decision to sponsor legislation that would take free milk away from school children over the age of 7? The free milk program for school age children began in 1940 during WWII, when it was feared that food shortages would cause malnutrition. By 1971, however, Thatcher believed that the program was too expensive to continue. And how did this impact the health of the nation? Studies have shown that it had little or no impact on children's health at the time.
6. What name is given to the limitation on the amount of milk a dairy farmer in the European Economic Community could produce in 1984?

Answer: Milk Quota

Have you ever heard of a butter mountain or milk lake? They are terms used to reference an over-abundance of dairy products. In order to deal with this problem, the European Economic Community, now called the European Union, passed a law called the Dairy Produce Quotas Regulations 1984; according to the law, each country could decide how they wanted to limit their own production of milk.

Originally the law was to be followed for five years, however, it was renewed several times before it was discontinued and new laws put in its place.
7. What is the name of the drink made with hot milk and curdled with wine or ale?

Answer: Posset

The making of posset dates back to at least the 15th century, when it appears to have been used as a drink, as well as a base product for making other recipes. Many times the curds were mixed with sugar, ginger, or sweets. Later on, citrus favors were added, as well as eggs and breadcrumbs.

The name is believed to be connected to "possenet", which was a small saucepan. Consuming a posset was considered to be a remedy for some maladies, and, at the very least, it was taken at bedtime to encourage sleep.
8. Which religion, in which some believe in the divinity of Haile Selassie, forbids the taking of milk, pork, shellfish, salt, or coffee?

Answer: Rastafarianism

Rastafarianism began in Jamaica in the 1930s; religious followers are monotheistic, believing in one God, who is called Jah. Some adherents to the religion believe that Heile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia from 1930-1974, was Jah, or, at the very least, a prophet of the religion.

The flag of Ethiopia, therefore, is an important symbol to them. Some of the dietary restrictions of the group are taken from the book of Leviticus, but it is also believed that food should be eaten in its natural state with no additives, such as salt or sugar.

Many Rastafarians follow a strict vegan diet, and therefore, do not eat animal products, such as milk.
9. In dairying, what is referred to as the last milk drawn from a cow?

Answer: Strippings

The presence of strippings is an example of what is known as an incomplete milking in cows. With the use of milking machines today, there is an estimated 5% of the milk which is left in the cow's udder at the end of milking. This milk, typically higher in fat than the milked milk, is not wasted, but is still in the udder at the next milking, which most dairy farmers believe is a good thing.

The other type of incomplete milking is associated with the cow becoming agitated or stressed for one reason or the other, which may end the milking session too soon.
10. Who wrote the poem 'Under Milk Wood'?

Answer: Dylan Thomas

Dylan Thomas was a Welsh poet who made radio broadcasts in order to earn money from time to time; the broadcasts gained him public regard, and he was employed by the BBC for literary readings. The attention he gained helped to give more notoriety to his work. "Under Milkwood" (1954) was originally written as a radio drama.

It examines the lives of the people who live in a fictional small town in Wales called Llareggub, and the connections they have as a community. The title was changed to "Under Milkwood" to help make it appealing to people who were not from Wales. Eventually the story was adapted into a play, as well as a movie.
