WESTON - Anyone interested in learning about beekeeping can soon learn about the basic equipment, tools, costs, legal issues, what to expect when harvesting your honey, resources and references.
This class is the basis for a series coordinated and offered through Schooner Farms, Weston. To become a beekeeper you need to know what you are getting into, while beekeeping is enjoyable it is also very complex and many folks jump in without regard to some of the realities involved. Organizers tout this class is a must for people considering beekeeping.
Students will receive a beekeeping book along with handouts. The session will be held at 10 a.m. Jan. 11 at Schooner Farms. Participants must register in advance at 419-261-0908.
Farmer's idea featured in national magazine PDF Print E-mail

CIRCLEVILLE - Rethinking a common tool for cattle rearing earned a local farmer national recognition.
Successful Farming, an Iowa-based magazine, highlighted Steve Barthelmas of Circleville in the "All Around the Farm: Idea of the Month" column in its December issue. About 100 submissions are received monthly, said marketing assistant Sally Odam of Successful Farming Magazine.
Barthelmas raises cattle on a farm off Ohio 104. He frequently uses a cattle chute, a metal stall or cage, for medical purposes. In place of the traditional hydraulic powered door, he installed an air cylinder. He said hydraulic pumps are expensive and the amount of power output is unnecessary.
"In the winter, the oil in the pump can get stiff, which makes it not move as well," he said.
The farmer got the idea from working in the printing industry, where most equipment is operated by air. He experimented with different types of equipment before finding an adequate combination of air and pressure.
