    .......and the farmer is responsible for negligent use of a product. Natural pollinators and other non target species are purposely killed when an applicator misuses the product they are applying.

    If that farmers cattle escape off his property then they are fair game?

    Yes, key word here "escaped off his property", try telling that to the farmer spaying his crop, Oh, my bees escaped (flew) over to your crop.

    I hear ya Mark and I wont perpetuate the side issue but Rick did give us an intriguing honey price report and some relevant (though troubling) hive condition reports. Considering the fact that this isnt exactly a Beesource hotspot at least somebody is doing something to wake it up.

    He did good but 2.25 is the latest number I have heard from a major packer. At those prices, though, the biggest consideration needs to be given to the specifics of the agreement regarding honey grading, drum return and, most importantly who you are comfortable doing business with. A few cents a pound can become a minor consideration if you get docked or if you spend too much time looking at an empty mail box.

    Precisely Why we we joined Sue BEE, tired of playing games with US
    private packers....Canadian producers maybe a dime a dozen, but we prefer not to give it away, it is of the same quality if not better than US midwest honey,we get a fair return for, on , our investment in Sue, it certainly wouldn't be the highest price paid, nor will it be the lowest, it is however a good, fair price, drums exchanged, I pay the brokerage,They pay the freight from my door, those people know how
    to treat people.... or should I should I say members. Proud to be a member of Sue Bee

    The ability to purchase, store and sell honey. Deep pockets are especially helpful.

    I think Barkmans have been pretty clear about the reasons for the change back to their former name and their is really nothing insidious about it all just the economic reality of where the control and ownership of their company lies. Nothing terribly surprising about a slight softening of the honey market as new crop honey becomes available. $2.15 is a pretty good price, I will be thrilled if it stays over $2.00. 2013 Crop? Who knows. There is reason for optimism out this way but at this point there is still a lot of work to be done before I will call ours a real good crop.

    Cool Re: Bulk honey prices and market outlook

    Jim, I haven't seen the market softening at all in the East, because of the rain. Packer calling me has quoted price at $2.25 and others have called to check the price and price being quoted at $2.15. So it depends on if the packer calls you or you call the packer on what you will get.
    Sounds like packers games to me.

    Anyway you look at it. its not a bad price.
