The annual beekeeping symposium was held on February 1, 2014. The location was the Lowder Business School (now renamed the: Raymond J. Harbert College of Business where the meeting has been historically held. This symposium was well attended and is a cooperative project between the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and the Alabama Beekeepers Association.
Lunch was provided by the Alabama State Beekeepers’ Association for all who pre-registered. Hope to see you next year.

I would appreciate any information and testimonials anyone might have related to new equipment offerings in the catalogs or that you may have constructed yourselves. I am presenting a discussion this upcoming Saturday on “New but useful equipment”. I could use some help.
