The meeting topic will be Record Keeping and Learning ~ or, Things I Should Have Done Presented by Ray Lackey.  Ray will discuss the benefits of consistent record keeping in the apiary and the type of information beekeepers should track to minimize loss and improve outcomes, whether it be honey production, queen rearing or making increase.
