 Dr. Jörg Mayer

Dr. Jörg Mayer will be the speaker at our May meeting. The lecture will introduce the concept of how precision livestock farming can be applied to the management of the honeybee super-organism. Because of recent advances in information technology and sensor miniaturization and commercial access to low-cost hardware and software many devices are currently available for obtaining health data of a hive. 

Due to COVID-19 this meeting will be hosted online to assist in social distancing. The link for the ZOOM meeting will be sent through email to paid members. Anyone who would like to pay dues may fill out the membership form.
