    Honey bee verieties

    Wow! That's amazing! And I think that's what I'm going to be doing. Saw a small honey bee today zipping around on the clover blossoms. Not sure if it's a feral hive or domestic in a 3 mile radius (I'm willing to bet feral) I just followed her for a little bit trying to get a good look at her.

    Honey bee verieties

    I have found a few local bees (and beekeeper club) and my beek friends ended up catching at least one swarm and another just showed up (happens every year, a wild/feral swarm shows up.)

    Honey bee verieties

    That's similar to what happened to my beek friends first hive. I have figured out a plan though, it might take between a year to 2 years before I set up my hive (this is happening though, and I am very happy about it) I'm going to be doing some online classes for things like their anatomy...

    Honey bee verieties

    Thankfully the YJ's left the property all together... guess they didn't like the fact that I wasn't going to worship them and dote on their every need, I have seen a hive that was broken into before at another property (may have been a swarm of honey bees that found a space in the ground. I...

    Honey bee verieties

    I've been interested for a long time. My Dad liked the idea while he was alive as well, mom always shot us down though. (Granted she said similar things about chickens, but here I am! NPIP and everything) and with bees dwindling down in numbers, I figure that they need all the help they can get...

    Honey bee verieties

    I did find a local "land race" honey bee if you will. And I do see a few honey bees around this time of year looking for food, I might start prepping and researching and if my friends that have bees will allow me to mentor under them I'm sure that will help fill in the gaps too :) I am fond of...

    Honey bee verieties

    I'm looking into all the bee verieties there are and wanted to see what other keepers recommend. I've heard of Italian bees, Caucasian bees, German bees and Russian bees. And I know what I want out of a colony but don't know what verieties would best suit me. I'm planning on only one colony at...

    Yaks?

    Thank you, the only one I know of near me is in GA. Other people around my town have bison and water buffalo and one person who has, elk and zebra and deer and bison! oh my! (but I have yet to find yak owners, go figure :idunno )

    Yaks?

    I looked up yaks on here and nothing popped up :( I'm still looking though. I did find out though that they have a slower growth rate and aren't that great at producing milk. If I got a yak it would be a mini bull to cross with a mini Jersey cow (I can find both not that far from me) still...

    Yaks?

    I'm curious. I want to know if any of you guys raise yaks. I want to know more about their care and behavior. From what I've read they need only 1% of body weight in feed compared to cows. But they also have a slower grow rate. And being it's an older bovine I'm guessing it's milk is AA? I...

    Towing Questions

    On that note. Any recommendations on a good Truck or other vehicles to get the job done? I don't live in Mountains per say, but it would be nice to be able to if I need to pick up a horse or transport one through them. I live in the foothills so it wouldn't be unheard of. I hear that rams tend...

    Towing Questions

    Hello, I'm curious if a 2001 dodge Durango (can pull up to 7,350lbs) would be fine to tow a 2 horse trailer with a pair of fjords in it? Thanks for any help. :weee
