My experience is that if you get an II breeder through a second season you are doing pretty good. I figure that's all you really need as you can take a lot of grafts off in a single year and analyze their offspring for breeding potential the following year. Aren't you really going "blind" on a breeder queen anyway? I never take too many grafts off of a single breeder. How do you really know for sure you will like the progeny?
