I have alot of goats and raise alot also. I keep 50# bags of high protein milk replacement around all the time for the kids that won't nurse the nannies...  I never thought of it as a pollen substitute until I read that qoute. I guess with some yeast - the milk replacement and >50% part sugar mix I'll have my pollen substitute..  I think I'm finally starting to catch on - good, I hate the fog of beekeeping... :-D

It is soya milk which compensate "animal mom's milk".  As it is said to "short gut animals".

finsky:
And if you travel 140 miles/ 225 km futher south to my area you will get an almost 10 degree difference. If you travel 200 miles/ 321 km south of Orlando to Miami area, the difference can be even more. Sometimes Miami can be colder than Palm Beach but usually not.

The difference is far more dramatic with pdmattox. He lives closer to the Georgia state border over 400 miles/644km north of me. Sometimes just telling Florida beekeepers how to deal with weather issues can be difficult.
