- Lautenthal: With B39(CS), as in 2020, a drone-line of Meda origin will be set up. The queens from different lines (including Sahariensis, Primorsky) mated in 2020 are strong, efficient and gentle. For this reason, I chose Lautenthal again this year. B39(CS) is a daughter of B140(TR)17 .
- Südharz: The B3(RKR) goes back to the B238 route from Eugen Neuhauser.
- Stolberg: With B91(RKR), Ralf Kolbe sets up an “old Buckfast”, Anatolica Sinop62 drone-line. As B19(TR) it was drone-line in Lautenthal in 2018 already . Christian Salau wrote about B19(TR): “Since the selection of the drone sister groups was always made only by queens who showed no tendency to swarm, this part is correspondingly hereditary. Eagerness to collect, brood care and brood nest construction as well as the cleaning behavior are excellent and thus the whole range of the selection breeding goal “Buckfast” is available.”
The queens come from rated breeders with a documented pedigree. Each queen comes with a breeding card (Pedigree).
