    Bee pollen nutrition

    The subject of spring feeding for spring flow buildup has came up.
    Tec once last year mentioned a publication "Fat Bees, Skinny Bees".

    Read it for some good education. It's a PDF download.

    That is a dandy read, it will take a little time to get through it but looks like some great info even if it is from Oz.

    Thanks for posting that rast.

    Your welcome. Here is a quote from the UF. regarding that article.

    "The authors of this manual include a list of pollen compositions from some common Australian plants. When reviewing the list, remember that plants within the same genus often have similar protein contents. This list can serve as a guideline for predicting protein content of pollen from similar plants in the US."
