Advanced Queen Breeding - Collingwood CANCELLED

Monday, March 18, 2019 - 9:00am to 5:00pm
The Queen Breeding workshop will guide beekeepers through the theoretical and practical application of developing a program for breeding and the selection of favourable genetics to improve their honey bee stock. Instruction through this workshop will provide interested beekeepers and existing breeders with formal training to adopt breeding components and skills practiced in the Ontario Resistant Honey Bee Selection Program (ORHBS). Workshop attendees will learn about assessing and selecting for ideal characteristics and expansion of existing breeding programs to ensure high quality honey bee stock is available for Ontario’s beekeeping industry.
Having completed the original Queen Rearing workshop is a prerequisite for this workshop. Having equivalent experience and familiarity with queen rearing processes will be considered.
