Not wanting to get down into the nitty gritty here but kind of curious what folks that are selling nucs make in terms of profit margin. I'm wanting to start rearing my own queens and manage nuc production like Mike Palmer using dinks as worker and comb donors and add quality queens. I only want to add in direct costs (woodenware, nuc box, feed, queen production cost). I'm going to try this on a small scale with 30 nucs and see how it goes. If I sell an overwintered nuc for $150 what percentage of that will be used for supplies necessary to make a saleable nuc? For simplicity sake let's assume 100% winter survival, I can figure in lost opportunity cost from there.
