Re: VSH Breeding?
I would not have brought Adam's sare grant up in the context of this discussion, but since he brought it up........
I've read this report several times, and I don't understand what the grant went towards. You did an alcohol wash on 20 hives, 3 times throughout a single season.
What did the money pay for?
What was learned that we didn't already know?
Why does doing rather routine mite counts in a commercial breeding population/program rate getting a grant?
Was anything else done besides doing a total of 60 mite counts?
What does it cost to perform 60 alcohol washes and graph the results?
Were you not doing mite counts before running this grant?
The irony is free. It's the sarcasm you are paying for....ironically.
