Lawyers bill out at 8 bucks a minute, just as a for example. By the time one counts the time to do the harvest, the time involved in prepping and shipping, then the administrative time involved in billing and receiving, me thinks 8 bucks sounds cheap like dirt, especially considering the highly specialized nature of the product.
    You are confusing sales price with profit. Price is what the customer pays. Profit is the difference in price and what it cost to provide it.

    We have finally discovered a successful method for freezing/cryopreserving semen at EWU. It actually works unlike the method WSU uses. My goal is to have the study complete and paper out by fall 2014. Results are amazing.

    I remember some years back getting auction notices for breeder queens. They used to post pictures of brood patterns and pictures of queens and genetics.
    Is there still something like this happening?
    Near me there is a breeder who breeds some of his queens on an island in isolation.
