Re: Handling Breeder Queens...
Michael, you said you produce around 1200 queens per summer grafting every 4 days, 128 nucs per round. How many breeders are you grafting from? A different one every graft or multiple per graft.
I graft once per week for 144 nucs per week. I am running 8 cell builders and use 4 different breeders per week. That way when you buy queens they are probably not all sisters.
