Sorry Zweefer, I don't see anything written about recording the presentation.  If you go to the Cumberland County Beekeepers Association Facebook page, you might be able to ask a question in the comment section.

This presentation was very good! The speaker was so easy to listen to and full of facts and info.  It is going to be edited and then posted on You Tube.  To know when it is posted check the Cumberland County Beekeepers Facebook page.  The presenter, Peggy Garnes, with her husband sell nucs and queens.  She has the process of creating nucs and overwintering them down pat and is treatment free.  She is in Medina, Ohio, so she gets some cold winters there.  Based on what she eluded to, her queens produce at least 3 years.  She tells people that are planning on replacing her queens to send them back to her.

She is a little farther south of you Zweefer but she talks about ways to winterize your colonies, checking for food stores, etc.   She also uses styrene nuc boxes for some of her nucs.  Snow is a good insulator for bees.

She was very good. Not that I winterize but education is always appreciated.
Thanks for the headsup on this.
