As always, GREAT to see you here! Please keep us filled in on the frequent going-ons of the commercial business - as Ryan said, many people would love to "Send some time in your shoes" experiencing the business end of this hobby we all share, but in many various ways.
Just wondering, how did the Winter go for you? Sounds like a lot of nucs, just wondering if you build, assemble or start all your own nucs and hive bodies - or just ssemble or even buy preassembled woodworks? and raise the bees to hive bodies from there, or how it all works.
I mentioned a while ago I helped a pollinator for two seasons, and I had a first hand experience at the HARD and EXHAUSING work it can be - thank God (Literally) for equipment that can do MOST of the moving and lifting.
Even nucs get hard to handle after a few thousand pass through your hands as you assembly line your processes.
Thanks for the post - I really hope you can find the time to give us some story line as the season progresses. Best wishes and great beekeeping.
Side note: During that short time I worked with migrational pollinators, traveling a relatively short distance from Cranberry bogs to Blueberry fields, I got to work with about 1400 colonies - I am very humbled by the backache that Bruce must be feeling - it is hard hard work doing ANYTHING large scale with bees.
