Beekeepers swarmed to the Ozark Folk Center State Park in scenic Mountain View for the 2021 Fall Beekeeping Conference. The meeting drew one of the biggest crowds we can remember. We heard form our keynote speakers Dr. Jeff Harris and Audrey Sheridan from the Mississippi State University, as well as other interesting and informative presentations. We visited with old friends, made new ones, and elected new officers for the coming year. Next fall we will return to same location on September 23-24, 2022. Check out events page for information on the next conference as the dates approach.

Some folks at the recent conference asked about how to find a veterinarian willing to diagnose honey bees. The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture has been helping to train our state's vets since the FDA changed the federal laws on the sale of veterinary antibiotics. You can download the most current Arkansas Veterinary Directory, which is arranged by county.
