I don't know much (anything really  grin) about Wisconsin, but I would be surprised if pollen availability has dropped off enough to affect how much is being brought in.  The bees bring in pollen when they need it to raise brood.  They don't just keep accumulating it like honey.

If you see that no pollen at all  is being brought in, check to be sure you still have a laying queen.
