I suppose that those breeders know what they are doing because their living depends on success of they queens.
And special  queens are not intended in direct honey production?

Exactly.  No reason to buy one unless you are producing queens.

For what it's worth AI is not always used to improve a breed.. it is used very often to control WHEN a cow will calf ( or mare will foal ) and to prevent possible injury to the cow or mare from natural breeding not because of genetic improvement . There is also a  BIG difference in what people call improvements. Especially when you are talking horses. I just dont want people out there to think they are ALWAYS getting something better or higher quality just because of AI. I have seen AI used to keep a breed pure only and had nothing to do with any type of improvement.
