I have some cordavans I got from Chris McCary at Buckatanna. They are gentle and build up good but not very mite resistant.

I am grafting from a cpl of purvis brothers queens this spring. Plan to use VSH or MN Hyg next year.

If I can ask you what did you have to pay for the Cordovan Bees from McCary from Buckatanna, MS? Also I am new on all of this. Also what is VSH? and MN Hyg?. I order a Good Book from Amazon.com, The name of the Book is call Beekeeping FOR DUMMIES. It come in the mail today and I can't not stop reading the book.....:thumbsup:

Thats a good book for the basics. VSH and MN Hyg are bees that have been selected for resistance to mites and disease. I plan to breed for resistance instead of treating for disease.

The cordavan queens were $15 last year.
