Meetings & Events

I’ve been asked to speak on:

-Switching to a Self Sustainable Queen Rearing Operation (small scale commercial queen rearing, multi queen nuc management)
-Beekeeping Techniques Used on the Canadian Prairies (Ezyloader, Escspes, Extraction Facility, Indoor Wintering)

I’ve got lots to say but only 2 presentations! Looking forward to the event

Chipping away at the corn as fast as the drier would operate. The wet bins are full, we have finished the last of the corn, harvest is done for 2018.

Sandy and I were invited out to Nova Scotia this week to attend the NSBA annual meeting. I spoke to a great turn today of roughly 100 Nova Scotia Beekeepers and indulged them into a day of prairie Beekeeping.
Finally met Ben and Amanda Little, Ben, a beekeeper I’ve known online for quite some time. Great people great scenery and great food. We want to come back!

We got off the soybeans with 3 hours to spare before the rain and then snow fell. A test on the corn read 26%, to tough aswell as the sunflowers. Wet cold weather has settled in and might linger for a while. The decision to bring in another combine this past weekend was a good investment. In the bin and out of harms way. Who knows what is ahead of us!
