If they were flying, probably orientation flights

If they were walking on the hive and bottom board, they were likely washboarding.

He posted at the time of day for orientation flights to be happening.

If it were a swarm you should have stayed and watched them cluster. They usually don't go very far.

I have seen a swarm and they weren't moving backwards and forwards. But all kind of whirling around as the moved along.  They were going to my swarm box. I waited them out and got it on video. But I would say you did see a swarm. I'd look for them if I were you.

I figured it would be a death sentence to. And it very well could be. Today I can't find her. Yesterday she got separated for a bit to. But I put her back with the group. I am not so sure that this didn't just come on all of a sudden.

Is the handle "220" some how related to a .220 Swift caliber?

We don't transport any cattle ourselves we use contract carriers. we really only sell twice a year. All the weaners get sold at the annual local weaner sale, we usually have a full load so easy to organise. Cull cows and those that don't preg test in calf go to the weekly fat sale a bit over 100km away. Carriers often only have half a load so we can usually organise something although it might be a week or two either side of the date we were planning to sell.
Only other regular movement is bulls, we don't run any bulls we lease them for the joining period. Delivery and return is usually in the lease price.
Sheep are easy I have a crate that fits the back of my pickup, does the job for the few we transport about.

There is an excellent documentary titled "More Than Honey" by Markus Imhoof.  This DVD covers migratory bee keeping with the six figure income for the bee keepers.

Applied Entomologist to be.  Good for you, our bees need experts.  May you be richly blessed with knowledge you seek.

We now have 2 young bulls. I was hoping for females but oh well. We will just traded them both off for females.
220,
The reason the lambs legs have not straightened out is usually because they are larger than normal and could not straighten them out in the womb.

I just bought a 2 horse trailer. I had to weld in a new spring support bracket, replace the lights and wiring and several other items. I still have to replace all of the tire valve stems.
I really wanted a cattle trailer but I have not found one for what I am willing to pay. I will have to modify this one by changing the ramp to side doors.
