About the Event

March Meeting

Our March meeting will be in-person at the Animal Science Building on the MU campus on Sunday March 20, 3:00-5:00 (doors open at 2:30).  Our guest speaker will be Walter Conner.  Walter lives and manages several apiaries in Franklin County, southwest of St. Louis..  Walter has been a beekeeper for over 15 years.  During that time he has developed a self-sustaining operation with about 75 colonies.  He now harvests about 100 pounds of honey from each colony.  Walter teaches bee keeping at East Central College in Union, Missouri and mentors the local 4H Club.

We will also be discussing

  • What's going on in the hives
  • What beekeepers should be doing with their colonies during March & April.

BRBA TOOLS

BRBA offers two exclusive benefits for members paying an additional $10 fee:

  • A collection of pneumatic tools and jigs for assembly of frames.
  • A Dadant electric 6/3 extractor with all the supplies to decap, screen, and bottle honey.

If you have used these tools you know how valuable they are to your hive construction and honey harvesting.  A change has been implemented that may impact your use of these tools.  If you expect to use the tools in 2022, and have already paid a $5 membership fee you will need to pay an additional $10.  Please reply to this email if you need to pay the additional fee. This additional fee is needed to cover the upkeep, maintenance, and possible repair/replacement of the equipment.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

BRBA survives because of dedicated volunteers and you can become more involved!  A shared workload promotes a stronger organization, but your BRBA involvement will be more personally rewarding. Please respond to this email, or to any of the advisory board, if you would like to assist.
