FIRST,SECOND FROM TOUWSRIVER
31.08.2015

 

Another great weekends racing, with our Open team taking the bulk of prizes in the clock. The Open Special race was not up to standard as it seems as if the on form pigeons were mostly entered in the Open event. A total of nearly 50% of our pigeons entered, took positions in the clock.

The pigeons were liberated in good conditions ,but ran into stiff head wind and 28 degree C temperatures over the last 250 km of the 690 km race.

Here the positions of our pigeons in the first 50 position in the club.

With night temperatures going down to -5 degrees celcuis for two nights on the truck and a very cold, cold front cutting throught the truck ,the pigeons braved it home to race a good return on the day. It is really amazing how brave these little creatures are in the most severe weather conditions.

ANOTHER SUPER SEASON
10.11.2013

 

It is always nice to sit back and analize the results of a season to establise whether your loft are improving. I can surely say that the pigeons we introduced lately had a big effect on our results. They are also tough and can take harder races weekend after weekend when they are on form.

The few Koopman birds we had in the race loft were very good and so also the Sablon and the Lou Wouters. The Geerinckx birds are super. I wish we could have more of them in the race loft.

What must always be remembered is that we fly with the youngsters that are not ordered and those we feel is not good enough to send to customers. REALLY THE B TEAM,BUT STILL THEY BRING THEIR SIDE.

A DOUBLE FOR THE DIAMOND-GABY WINS
07.10.2013

 

A Gaby Vandenabeele won the car at the National Loft South last week for Bertus Nel. This weekend a Gaby wins the open event for us from Vredendal. A beautifull hen bred of "Jonge Bliksem" and "Krompen Schone Bertus".If you study the National wins this year in Europe you will note that a big amount of the winning pedigrees carry the Gaby Vandenabeele bloodline.Surely these facts proves that it can be true that so many informed fanciers reason that the Gaby pigeons are the best the world can offer.Im surely impressed with them.

This past weekend saw Diamond Pigeon Stud enjoy a double win in the two races that was on offer.Due to mist the Saterday liberation was held over untill Sunday. After liberation the temperatures soon reached 30 degrees C, however the pigeons set up a speed of 1250 mpm  with good returns.

This past weekend was very cold over our racing route especialy over the Calvinia area where the temperature reached only 2 degrees calcius and the pigeons had to endure it for about 100 km. After that it become warmer and were the birds able to reach home and a good race was flown.It was again our old De Zutter,Lou Wouter,De Rauw Sablon and Koopman crosses that performed very well.

EASY FROM VREDENDAL
15.09.2013

 

It was an easy race from Vredendal (680 km) this weekend with the birds being liberated 2 hour later due to mist and we managed to clock before sunset. Our lofts did not perform up to standard and it is certain that something is wrong. We will analise and treat accordingly. What can also be true is that the only 2 good old birds that was basketed was clocked in front and can it only be the lack of experience of the other birds that brought the bad result. Some of them on their first race. At least this race opened their eyes a bid as their are still 4 Vredendals ahead and i am sure they will bring their side.

HEAT AND STRONG WINDS TAKES ITS TOLL
08.09.2013

 

Racing this week was from Springbok,a distance of 675km. The weather man forecasted strong side winds and temperatures in the lower 30's. So it was and a speed of 1100 mpm was put up and only about 13 pigeons homed in Kimberley on the day. The rest of the field returned in drips and draps on Sunday with most of the fanciers still having some good pigeons out on the evening.

Our De Rauw Sablon x Lou Wouter hen 2086/10 that won the Federation from Bellville last year dropped early on Sunday morning again showing us her endurance when the going gets hard.

STAFF VAN REET WINS SALES RACE
03.09.2013

 

I received a call the other night from my good friend Mike Du Randt from Port Elizabeth.  Now, if there is ever someone that is as good as Neill Diamond you can pull old Mike closer.  He is really good and I enjoyed the CD that he made with Neill Diamond songs. 

We helped Mike approximately two years ago with a pure Staff Van Reet ZANK0418/11 and expressed to him that these birds must be crossed for the best results.  He does not always listen but this time he carried out my instruction and produced a sparkling sale race winner 08004/12 and a lovelly cash amount of R18900-00.

Well done Mike, this result surelly makes the 2013 season worthwhile.  A loan?

EXTREME COLDFRONT FORCES RACE CLOSER
31.08.2013

 

One of the coldest and wettest coldfront to hit South Africa in years arrived this past weekend forcing many Federations to alter their race routes to safeguard the birds from unneccesary loses.So was also the case in our Federation and the race was shortened from 680 km to 470 km ,taking the birds away from the heart of the problem area.I can only congratulate the 3 officials Joep Joubert,Louis Vermeulen and John Stannard for their wise thinking to protect our pigeons.

HOT WEATHER OPENS RACE
26.08.2013

 

Racing was from Aggenys this weekend,a town that is located in desert area.With the wind on the right wing most of the way the pigeon set up a 1300mpm velocity.The yearling birds found racing to be tough ,but the open event was easier with the experience of the old birds.It was also the final race in our Yearling series with John Stannard and our loft 2 points apart to win.Sad to say that John had an earlier bird grabbing the Champions title in the club. WELLDONE OLD CHAP!! .NOBODY IN OUR CLUB USES STEAM BOXES AND THAT SAYS A LOT.THEY ALL RESPECT THE NATURAL QUALITY OF THEIR PIGEONS AND IS HONEST TO THEIR SPORT.Our Speedcop Pensioner Thys van Vuuren entered only 2 birds in the yearling event and wins.Very good.

27.07.2013

 

Last year we invested a large sum of money into Gaby Vandenabeele pigeons.Most of the pigeons were older birds and had to be replaced with younger stock to provide more vitality and and a future in the stock loft. Our priority was thus to breed many youngsters and then to select a few key youngsters to retain for stock and also a few for our constant stream of customers. A reasonable number was also disposed off. Here and there one landed in the race loft and some crossed ones were also selected into the race team.

A pleasant surprise came our way when some of the few retained Gabies dropped in front from Williston in the Yearling event. I am sure that next year will be a very strong Gaby year and i am looking forward to race these super world class pigeons.

WINNING BOTH RACES FROM UPINGTON
07.07.2013

 

Upington is known as a beautifull town,a massive river with good fishing and a friendly agricultural community.For us it is the town that blessed our loft with a win in both the races that was on offer.

This year will long be remembered for the massive lost of yearlings world wide due to sunspots that is disturbing the magnetic field of the earth.We saw the same during the Upington race as the young ones battled with a much slower return than the old birds

TWO DOUBLE WINNERS
07.07.2013

 

Racing was from Kakamas(405 km) this Saterday.A fresh northerly wind was on the left wing pushing the birds down to the south allowing the clubs located to the south of our city to give the big boy a good smack. It is interesting to note how all the Federarion results are dominated by the clubs on the south as the dominant northerly winds push the birds southwards.But, it is still the the fanciers situated in the north that is leading the Federation averages on consistancy. Currently our loft is placed second place on the Federation averages.

On Club level we won the short distance championships with John Stannard second and Estelle du Toit third . We also own the top five ace pigeons on the short distance series.

The open event last week from Upington(350 km) was won for us by a beautiful BBar Janssen hen 453/11 bred from "Jarrad" x "Lovely lady" and she did the same this week by winning the open event from Kakamas (405km).DOUBLE WINNER

During the beginning of the season a lovely Koopmans check hen 486/11, bred from the "Son Drum" x "Ronja" line won both Groblersdal (350Km) open events for us. ANOTHER DOUBLE WINNER

STORMY CONDITIONS GREETS FIRST RACE
09.06.2013

 

The year 2013 will be remembered by the heavy losses all over our country due to the end of the 11 year cycle of sunspots this year.Fanciers from the north to the south of South Africa lost from 10 to 80 percent of their yearlings.It was only the more experienced old birds that could figure out the megnetic fields and disturbances to survive the onslaught.

Our first race was from Groblershoop(280 km).A stormy weekend was on the cards as sidewind of 45 to 65 kph was predicted.Most fanciers basketed less pigeons only to participate.Liberation was OK and then the wind came ahead of a strong coldfront trashing the birds into wires cutting everybodies returns by 15 to 20 %.

21.10.2012

 

The final race of the season was greeted with bad rainy weather and the liberation from Cape Town(815 km) was brought closer to Worcester (742 km).Our company sponsored a motor car and the spirit was high as the fanciers made a special effort to win it.The pigeons was liberated in raceable weather ,but encountered rain and very cold conditions along the way.First pigeons was clocked on the day and al fanciers recorded stiff loses.

The first five birds nominated for the car each wins a key to the car,but only one key will start the car.This car starting event takes place at our annual Federation prize giving on the 17th November 2012.The first two car nominated pigeon clocked belonged to ourselves(pigeon nominated for Julius Koen) and our current Federation champion Louis Vermeulen.Due to overflight the other 3 key winners must still be calculated

DE RAUW SABLON WIN ON HOT 815 KM
15.10.2012

 

As last year the De Rauw Sablon pigeons crossed with the Lou Wouter pigeons are proving to be a very good cross for middle to long distance racing.Not only was this cross responsible for a number of top positions last year ,the winning spree continued this year with a Union and Federation win as well as many prizes on the top of the ladder in the Union and Federation.

After last years success with this cross we had many orders for them to race,reducing the number we had for ourselfs to compete with.The small flock however proved their worth giving us top positions after top positions.

Two weeks ago she returned without her electronic ring,but this time her new ring added some luck as this very beautifull and brilliant hen dropped first to score 3rd in the Open Special event.After 3 years of racing she has built up a strong result base for her to qualify for a place in the stock loft.She is a daughter of LEKOTA AND GAVINS PRIDE (LOU WOUTER) and is the only one bred from this couple ever to race.

AGAIN FAST FROM WORCESTER
01.10.2012

 

It seems as if the weather man just dont want to give us a decent race with a headwind .The distance of 740km is now right to have a good show down. Somehow we do need to give the birds a good tester to seperate the men from the boys.It is just impossible to take talewind pigeons to the stockloft.We all do know that it is neccesary to filter top birds to the stock loft.So,lets hope some tougher races is around the corner.

GEERINCKX PIGEONS VS GAILFORCE WINDS
15.08.2012

 

THE PIGEONS FAMILY OF L J &B GEERINCKX ARE BEING REGARDED AS SOME OF THE BEST SHORT TO MIDDLE DISTANCE PIGEONS IN THE WORLD TODAY. NOT ONLY THAT,THEIR LOFT OF PIGEONS ARE ALSO BEING RATED ON THE SAME LEVEL AS THAT OF THE WORLD FAMOUS DIRK V DIJK OF BELGUIM FROM WHERE THE FOUNDATION OF THE KOOPMANS FAMILY COMES FROM. IF THAT IS NOT IMPRESSIVE, WHAT IS?

OUR TOP ACE PIGEON IN THE CLUB AT THE MOMENT IS BRED DIRECTLY FROM TWO IMPORTED GEERINCKX BIRDS FROM THE LINE OF THE "GLADIATOR" AND "WITTEKOP SYLVESTER". WHAT IMPRESSED ME MORE, IS THAT THE BROTHER WON THE OPEN EVENT FOR US IN STORMY GAILFORCE WIND OF UP TO 75KM PER HOUR. ANOTHER SISTER DAMAGED HER 9th(CURLY FLIGHT) , BUT STILL MANAGED TO DROP IN THE FRONT PACK FROM EVERY LONG TRAINING TOS WE SEND THEM ON. SHE IS NOW AT STOCK ,AS I AM AFRAID THE HAWKS MIGHT JUST GET HOLD OF HER AS SHE CAN NOT GENERATE MAXIMUM SPEED.

AFTER ALL THE FAST RACES THIS SEASON, WE ARE AT LAST BLESSED WITH GOOD PIGEON WEATHER. WARMER TEMPERATURES AND A REASONABLE HEAD WIND SAW A DIFFERENT PIGEON DROPPING IN FRONT FROM THE SKIES  AND IS ALWAYS NICE TO CHECK UP THE PARENTS AND TO EVALUATE THE BREEDING LOFT.

AS THE WEATHERMAN PREDICTED, THE WHOLE COUNTRY WAS ON SOME OR OTHER WAY EFFECTED BY STRONG WINDS,COLD WEATHER AND RAIN ON SATERDAY.

COLD RAINY WEATHER THIS TIME
23.06.2012

 

COLD, RAINY, WEATHER WAS THE ORDER OF THE DAY AS THE LIBERATION WAS DELAYED FOR 3 HOURS AND 15 MINUTES. A TAIL WIND WAS PREDICTED ,BUT STILL THE PIGEONS ARRIVED SLIGHTLY BROKEN UP.IT WAS HOWEVER A FAIR RACE WITH TOP BRED PIGEONS LEADING THE WAY HOME.

AS I MENTIONED LAST WEEK SOME ADJUSTMENT WAS NECCESARY ON THE FEEDING SIDE AND THIS PROVED TO BE CORRECT AS THE PIGEONS RESPONDED WELL. FEEDING COMES DOWN TO READING THE WEATHER PATERNS CORRECTLY A FEW DAYS AHEAD AND ADJUSTING ACCORDINGLY.

REMEMBER ,IT IS NOT THE BEST MIXTURES YOU FEED THAT ASSISTS IN WINNING---IT IS HOW YOU MASTER THE ART OF FEEDING CORRECT, DAILY, FOR THE TASK AHEAD OF THE PIGEONS AND THE WEATHER PATERNS THEY MUST BATTLE AGAINST.

TOP GABY VANDENABEELE BIRD ARRIVES
09.12.2011

 

I ALWAYS WANTED TO OBTAIN THE BEST OF GABY VANDENABEELE 'S BIRDS AND THAT HAD TO BE THE LINE OF 'WITTENBUIK", KOLONEL","BLIKSEM".THESE BIRDS ARE HARD TO FIND AND COSTS  A LOT OF MONEY. TO PURCHASE  DIRECTLY FROM GABY WAS IMPOSSIBLE AS HE IS FULLY BOOKED FOR A FEW YEARS AND I DID NOT WANT TO WAIT.

SO,THE NEXT STEP WAS TO LOOK FOR THEM ELSEWHERE AND SURE WE FOUND THEM AT BERTUS NEL,A GOOD YOUNG MAN WITH A GOOD HEART,SPECIALLY AFTER HE AGREED TO SELL THEM TO DIAMOND PIGEON STUD.HE EVEN OFFERED TO DELIVER THEM TO OUR LOFTS.THANX BERTUS.

IM PROUD TO INTRODUCE THEM AND IS SURE THEY WILL OFFER THE LEAP FORWARD.THEY WILL BE PLACED ON OUR WEB SITE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE FOR ALL TO ADMIRE

TREATMENT A SUCCESS
20 08.2011

 

AS OUR RESULTS SHOWED, WE WERE CORRECT IN SPOTTING A MEDICAL PROBLEM IN OUR BIRDS.I PERSONALLY HATE ALL THE STUFF THAT FANCIERS FORCE THERE BIRDS TO TAKE TO OBTAIN BETTER RESULTS.BELIEVE ME,IT IS NOT THE PIGEINS THAT ARE SICK AS THEY SAY BUT RATHER THE BOOSTING EFFECT THE ANTIBIOTICS, WORMERS AND CANCER/COCCI REMEDIES PROVIDE ON DAY OF RACING.YOU FIND THAT MOST OF THESE FANCIERS NEVER ENTER ONE LOFT RACES AS MOST OF THEM PERFORM POORLY.WHEN BIRDS ARE NOT WELL THEN THESE REMEDIES ARE NECCESARY.WE THREATED WITH 7 IN 1 YBD AND WERE SPOT-ON.

A PROBLEM SOMEWHERE
06.08.2011

 

THIS WEEKENDS RACING WAS NOT GOOD AND I SUSPECT SOME CANCER AND POSSIBLY SOME BACTERIAL INFECTION IN THE LOFT. SO WE WILL TREAT THE BIRDS ACCORDINGLY WITH YBD- 7 IN 1.THIS TREATMENT IS A VERY BROAD SPECTRUM ONE AND I AM SURE WE WILL HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD.RACING WAS IN A VERY COLD EASTLY WIND AND THE BIRDS WAS SHIPPED INTO A COLDFRONT WITH MINUS DEGREES.

10.03.2011

 

BRED BY THE PIPA ELITE CENTRE AND BEING CLASSED AS ONE OF THE GREATEST YOUNGBIRDS BRED THERE,''BEAUTY INBRED FREDDY''WAS RECENTLY PURCHASED BE US TO REINFORCE THE'' FREDDY/DROMER'' LINE OF OUR FINE SELECTION OF DE RAUW SABLON PIGEONS.

ONE WILL NEVER FORGET THE MAJOR INPACT '' FREDDY'' AND HIS SON ''DROMER'' HAD ON THIS FAMOUS BLOODLINE.

FREDDY''  WAS MARKED AS ONE OF THE FINEST BREEDERS THAT THIS FAMILY DELIVERED.  HE EVENTUALLY GREW OLD IN THE LOFTS OF THE LATE PROS ROOSEN.  HIS SON ''DROMER'' WAS EVENTUALLY BOUGHT BY GERHARD KOOPMANS TO CROSS INTO HIS KOOPMANS FAMILY.THEY IMMEDIATELY PRODUCED NATIONAL WINNERS AND BROUGHT EVEN MORE FAME TO THIS ALLREADY FAMOUS LOFT

CURRENTLY THE DE RAUW SABLON PIGEONS ARE EXTREMELY SOUGHT AFTER IN THE WHOLE WORLD .OUR LOFTS ARE CURRENTLY FLOODED WITH ENQUIRIES FOR THESE CHAMPIONS. SLOWLY BUT SURELY WE WILL CLIMB THE LADDER TO SATISFY OUR CUSTOMERS WITH SOMETHING GOOD.

NOW LETS GET BACK TO ''BEAUTY INBRED FREDDY''. SHE WAS RATED SO HIGH BY THE PIPA TEAM THAT SHE WAS MATED WITH ''NEW FREDDY'' BEFORE WE PURCHASED HER. NOW WHO IS ''NEW FREDDY''.  HE WAS CROWNED 1st NATIONAL ACE PIGEON KBDB MIDDLE DISTANCE 2010 - BELGUIM AND ALSO 1st OLIMPIAD ACE CAT ''G'' FOR POZNAN, POLAND 2011. SURELY THERE MUST BE SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL IN HER TO BE MATED TO ''NEW FREDDY''

De Rauw Sablon on top-HOME PAGE FEB 2011
07.01.2011

 

THE MOST EXPENSIVE PIGEONS IN THE WORLD.THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER IN THE WORLD.THEY ARE REALLY GOOD.

THAT IS WHY WE DECIDED TO INVEST INTO THIS BLOODLINE.

IT ALL STARTED WITH THE FAMOUS ''BARCELONA 4358204/80'' MATED WITH A HEN FROM JEFF  DE RIDDER 2566545/85 THAT PRODUCE ''ALBERT''. THE ''AS'' 4360409/81 (5TH NAT ACE PIGEON  1984)'' MATED TO ANOTHER HEN FROM JEFF DE RIDDER 4475643/86 PRODUCED ''PAOLA''. THEN IT EXPLODED.

 THE PAIRING OF 'ALBERT AND PAOLA' BECAME ONE OF THE GREATEST DREAM PAIRS THAT PIGEON RACING EVER SAW. THEY PRODUCED SOME OF THE GREATS OF BELGUIM PIGEON HISTORY AND CONTRIBUTED TO ONE OF THE BEST FAMILIES OF  MIDDLE/ LONG DISTANCE BIRDS IN THE WORLD. CHAMPIONS LIKE '848, DE FRANS, LIMOGES , ELASTICA, LIEVE, LIMOGES 11, DE DROMER,  FREDDY,BAK 17 PAIR, DE SMALLEN, DE 309'', ETC ETC FOLLOWED.

SOME OF THESE PIGEONS WON THE TITLE OF AN ACE PIGEON AND OTHERS TURNED OUT TO BECOME SUPER BREEDERS OF ACE BIRDS. THE STORY IS ENDLESS. TODAY IT IS WORTHWHILE CROSSING THIS CHAMPION FAMILY INTO YOUR LOFT.

OUR HOMEPAGE PHOTO IS ''MISS BEAUTIFUL B 4322747/09''. SHE IS INBRED TO THE '' WONDER BREEDER 548'' A DIRECT SON OF ''ALBERT AND PAOLA''. NOT ONLY THAT, HER MOTHER IS A HEN BRED FROM THE WORLD FAMOUS ''BAK 17 ''PAIR. ''MISS BEAUTIFUL'' WAS FEATURED ON THE FRONTPAGE OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN  AND WORLD PIGEON MAGAZINE AND IS TODAY THE LOGO BIRD OF THIS MAGAZINE. TRULY A GREAT DE RAUW SABLON PIGEON.

'' De Wondere 8847''(Home page photo - DES 2010)
22.11.2010

 

You get good pigeons and then you get super pigeons. ‘'De Wondere 8847” is a pigeon that will make any fancier a Champion. .She is the foundation racer amongst many great birds of Vermeulen lofts and one of the most consistent racers the Northern Cape Pigeon Federation enjoyed for many years.

Not only did she fly many prizes in the clock, she is a pigeon that can be raced weekend after weekend from 300 km to 850 km.

During 2009 when she was a yearling , she was raced 17 weekends out of a 20 weekend program .  She won 14 prizes in the clock time in the club. Every body thought she was burned out as she was raced so hard as a yearling. She proved to be even better as a two year old. Listen to this;  -she was raced 19 weekends out of a 20 weekend race program and won prizes in the clock a stunning 15 times in the club and 12 times in the Federation.

She produced only 1 youngster after the 2009 racing season and this youngster won 6 prizes in 7 races. I am sure that “De Wondere 8847” will  became a super breeder and will continue to provide the winning pleasure to the Vermeulen  family. I must say that it is an honor to know that such a high quality pigeon is part of our club’s athletes.

Looking at her pedigree, she descents from a variety of  blood lines and can we say that she is a true ’’Vermeulen” pigeon. Why I say this, is the fact that the Vermeulen birds is in a superior class due to the fact that they  own an above average stamina and the ability to recover within 7 day. They can   be raced again and again and this over the long distances. Not only this!!!!!.they can do it as yearlings and not burn out!!!!!!

The main selection tool for Louis Vermeulen is the basket and he only retains pigeons that can recover fast and be raced often. Therefore only the best stayers are bred from in his breeding program . So will we find that the very best of Ettiene de Vos, Lou Wouter, Cattryse, Houben etc.  are found in her pedigree

Her Federation result sheet is most impressive:

KOOPMANS AND DE RAUW/SABLON BREEDING PROGRAM
18.11.2010

 

 

We recently imported extremely good Koopmans pigeons from the line of "Drum", "Golden Lady" and "Aladin". Our foundation cock is a son of "Drum".SEE THE WEBSITE OF SYNDICATE LOFTS UK FOR INFO ON "DRUM ".We also imported "Dora" and "Ronja" which are both direct Koopman pigeons. Read more about them in our Website under BREEDING BIRDS.

We are currently mating "Son Drum" with "Dora" and "Ronja" to establish a half brother/ half sister family. After selection we will mate these half brother/ half sister yearlings with each other to breed back to the "Drum" cock line. "Drum" produced 31 first price wins up to date. He is bred from "Tips" x "Geschelpt Kannibaaltje" one of the best breeding pairs that Europe offers. He is a brother to the world famous "Farah Diba" (First National Ace pigeon long distance WHZB 2003, First Western European Nations Cup long distance 2003, First acebird Combine one day long distance 2003), the world famous "Reza" (Best middle distance pigeon in the world - first Peronne 28,332 birds, first Chantilly 21,892 birds, first Chantilly 10,589 birds and second NPO Chantilly 17,818 birds) and the great "Future" (First Ace Pigeon Federation 2003). We are also using "Son Drum" as a cross into our own pigeons to produce races for the coming season. He is a brilliant Stallion cock and enjoy the variety of hens coming his way.

Currently we own 17 imported DE RAUW SABLON pigeons from all the good lines in the world.These are currently the most sought after pigeons in the world.More  photos ,eyes and pedigrees of them  will be inserted onto our website soon .They are being mated to local pigeons at the moment for racing purposes. Most of the local pigeons being used for the cross are birds acquired from the great champion Louis Vermeulen (read article below).

After this proses we will mate the DE RAUW SABLON pigeons to form a line bred family to key pigeons in the strain. These youngster will be on offer to our customers just before the breeding season next year. Again we will select severely to offer only the best. Currently we have no more youngsters for sale as we are fully booked for racing youngsters as well as stock youngsters.

THAT MAN VERMEULEN
16.10.2010

 

Federation champion last year and Federation champion this year. This is any pigeon fancier's dream. Louis Vermeulen, young fancier of the Northern Cape again showed this season that pigeon racing is in his blood.

The style in which he won this prestigious championships showed a man of dignity, honesty and a true champion. Many rolled the cheating thoughts in their heads and it was eventually proven by clock and witness that his many good pigeons are unbeatable. For me it is an honor to write about this man, as there was a time in my own career of being multiple Federation Champion I had to go through the same criticism and thoughts against my results. Let us have a look at his results in the Club as the Federation results are not totally on the board yet.

Firstly, I want to mention that I surprised him with a visit to his loft three minutes before the first pigeons arrived from Cape Town, a distance of 813km. The velocity was 1270 meters per minute and he dropped three pigeons together. He had 17 out of 26 pigeons back on the day where the average of the other members was approximately five. The way that his pigeons closed their wings and dived to his loft was for me a beautiful sight. I could not believe that after 813km, pigeons would dive like jets out of the air to land. I realized that this man will be unbeatable for a number of years to come. Although this thought scared me, I must say that the afternoon's pigeon clocking with Louis was a wonderful pigeon experience.

19. Nel's Hokke 11474   549

20. Hennie Bam 05827   540

I must say that our club is extremely strong and the amount of points that the fanciers are putting together is higher than the previous two years. This proves that the guys are improving. This comes from the high standard that Louis Vermeulen offers.

I need also mention the name of Sakkie Joubert. He never goes down without a fight. If ever there is a fancier that must be blessed with a Federation Champion title, it is him.

WELL DONE YOU GUYS

REGARDED AS THE MOST DIFFICULT SEASON SINCE 1980, THE FANCIERS OF THE NORTHERN CAPE PIGEON FEDERATION IS SUFFERING UNDER 20 WEEKENDS OF HOT,WINDY HEADWINDS. ITS NOW TAKING ITS TOLL DURING THE LAST 6 LONG DISTANCE RACES. NO TAILWIND RACES AND NO GOOD PIGEON WEATHER THIS YEAR.THE SMOKEY, HAZY, HOT DAYS ARE LEAVING THE LOFTS WITH NO OLD BIRDS NEXT YEAR AND SOME OF THE WISER,OLD TIMERS LIKE DION LIEBENBERG AND OUR SELFS STOPPED RACING BEFORE THE LONG DISTANCE SERIES STARTED. WE WILL HAVE SOME OLD BIRDS LEFT NEXT YEAR, WHILE OTHER FELLOW FANCIERS MIGHT HAVE SOME PSYCHOLOGICAL AND BODILY HARMED OLD BIRDS.

WITH THIS HOT WEATHER OVER THE COUNTRY,THE LAST 4 LONG DISTANCE RACES WERE EXTREMELY HARD. THE PIGEONS HAVE TO FLY OVER 700 KM OF SEMI DESERT WITH VERY LITTLE WATER, FORCING OVERNIGHT RACES EVERY WEEKEND. HEAVY LOSSES ARE ON THE CARDS. NOT ALL OUR FANCIERS SPECIALIZE IN LONG DISTANCE RACING. THEY GO FOR THE BASIC ALL ROUNDER. DETRIMENTAL THIS YEAR. LETS HAVE A LOOK AT WHO IS HANDLING THE SMASHES THE BEST.

LOUIS VERMEULEN - A TRUE CHAMPION
15.09.2010

 

BEING A FAMILY MAN, GOOD FRIEND,OUTSTANDING FANCIER AND A HARD WORKER IN THE CLUB AND FEDERATION , MAKES HIM THE PERFECT PIGEON FANCIER. NOT ONLY THAT, HE OWNS A VERY SPECIAL TOUCH WITH PIGEONS AND HAS GOT THE ABILITY TO MOTIVATE HIS TEAM TO RACE WEEKEND AFTER WEEKEND UP TO 800 KM.(NATURAL SYSTEM)

HE CAN RESTORE A PIGEON TO RACING CONDITION WITHIN 7 DAYS AND WILL DRIVE THE WHOLE CLUB UP THE WALL BY CLOCKING THEM ONE AFTER THE OTHER . I AM SURE HE WILL WIN THE FEDERATION AVERAGES AGAIN THIS YEAR AND WILL AGAIN DOMINATE THE FED ACE PIGEONS TOTALLY. FOR ALL YOU DO FOR THE SPORT, YOU DESERVE TO BE THE CHAMPION

TWENTY DE RAUW SABLONS ARRIVE
24.08.2010

 

After experiencing a terrible 30 days in quarantine and arriving in an absolute bad condition at our lofts, we welcomed these young birds with a hot bath, super meal (they could not eat- to weak) and a health program second to none.

 Today one month later the youngsters are developing and are each one of them busy getting his own personality and character.Some smart birds are going to develop here and we are looking forward to breed off them and to racing them soon.

UPGRADE QUARANTINE PLEASE
24.08.2010

 

RECENTLY A BATCH OF APPROXIMATELY 330 PIGEONS ARRIVED IN SOUTH AFRICA AND WAS TAKEN UP IN THE KEMPTON PARK STATE QUARANTINE STATION. THE LARGE MAJORITY OF THEM WAS PIGEON FOR THE CARNIVAL CITY INTERNATIONAL ONE LOFT RACE.

FORMING PART OF THIS GROUP OF 330 WAS 23 DE RAUW SABLON PIGEONS THAT WE IMPORTED. ALSO WAS THERE 10 BIRDS ADDRESSED TO THE ARMSTRONG BROTHERS AND OTHERS FOR SOME FANCIERS IN SA.

 LISTEN TO THIS: NEARLY 10% OF THE BIRDS DIED IN QUARANTINE AND THE OTHERS ARRIVED AT OUR LOFTS IN A TOTAL SICK CONDITION, BADLY UNDERFED AND SAT ON THE LOFTS FLOOR FOR 12 DAYS BEFORE THE FIRST ONE FLEW TO A PERCH. WE LOST 2 BIRDS IN THE QUARANTINE AND HAD TO ELIMINATE A THIRD ONE ON RECEIVING THEM.

 AFTER FOUR PHONE CALLS TO THE HEAD OF THE QUARANTINE STATION, MR. LIMBA, WE ARE STILL UNSUCCESSFUL TO GET THE RINGS OF OUR DEAD BIRDS. THE MORTALITY REGISTER SEEMS TO BE NOT UP TO DATE AS THEY CANNOT REALLY SAY WHETHER THE PIGEONS DIED OR JUST WENT MISSING.

 THE ARMSTRONG BROTHERS HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE WITH THE STATION AND LOST 5 OF THERE 10 IMPORTED PIGEONS. WE NEED SOME PRESSURE FROM THE INTERNATIONAL AND LOCAL PIGEON BODIES TO GET THE STANDARD UP.

CART BLANCE, A LOCAL TV AWARD WINNING PROGRAM, THAT SPECIALIZES IN THIS TYPE OF INVESTIGATIONS, WAS NOT INTERESTED IN MY CALL FOR HELP, AS THEY HAVE TO MUCH WORK AND WILL NOT EVEN PHONE ME BACK

DE RAUW SABLONS ARE HERE
21.07.2010

 

The three hens, Cleopatra. Miss Beautifull and Miss Nele arrived this week and i like all three. They are still young birds that has moulted up to there 6th pen. They were in closed lofts all the time and show no decent body development. We moved them to the avary lofts so that they can develop. They will be totally new birds in 6 months time. Another 23 Aelbrecht birds are due out of the quarantine on Friday, so we will be able to report on there guality soon.

AGAIN DE KLAK AND DE ZUTTER
21.07.2010

 

This past weekends racing was from Beaufort West (450 km).In the yearling event it was again the De Klaks from the "222" x "Axholme" lines and De Zutters from the lines of the "Wondere Dunky" that flew in the first 5% prizes against 374 pigeons. In the open event 384 pigeons was entered and here the Van De Velde x Delbar (5 th) and our Houbens from the line of "Parma" flew in the first 5 %. We are currently lying 4 th in the Yearling Championship and must give it a fair go as it is an honour to win this series.From this weekend basketing is on Thursdays and this changes racing somewhat. The yearlings do not know feeding and drinking on the truck. They therefore take a reasonable knock if the race is very hard.

NO NEED FOR MUTIES
20.07.2010

 

It is a fact that many fanciers world wide and especially in South Africa cannot race without the use of extreme antibiotics and performance enhancing muties.

After doing the same for many years, i refused to give my pigeons these substances the last 3 years. The first year was havoc. Last year it was much better as our loft finished 7th in the Federation. This year the results are ever better. How did the results improve. Its simply. We keep the pigeons that can race without medicine and slowly but surely we're culling off those that do not perform .We are breeding better pigeons with a good natural immunity.

We make use of natural products such as the GEM and BELGAVET lines that do not contain any antibiotics or chemicals to combat cancer and cossi. Garlic,Echinacea,Oregano and Grapefruit Seed Extract are being used as our natural antibiotics.Tricanox from the GEM company are being used for Cancer and Cossi. Strike is used to correct the intestinal tract and Breath Ezz for oxygen improvement. IMPACT (iodine) is very good to improve form . I like Eureka and Eureka Plus of the BELGAVET company as my vitamin, mineral, trace element and amino acid supplement.The product RACEMAX is also very good and contains a daily deworming substance. My choice of electrolite is Electroliten BVP of Belgavet or RECUPE. That's basically all. I also must say that if the Paw Pow hits the fan i will use a decent antibiotic or other remedies for the problem.I did not need it the last two years.IT ALL ABOUT GOOD PIGEONS WITH A GOOD NATURAL IMMUNE SYSTEM.

WARMER WEATHER
24.06.2010

 

New records hit the South African weather last week when the coldest night in 50 years was recorded.
We spend some time on warming our loft and it paid dividents by scoring a number of pigeons in the 5 and 10 percent prizes.
My friend Louis Vermeulen that races from the warmest loft , took the first 3 prizes in the yearling race and the first 4 prizes in the old bird race (450 BIRDS ). WARM LOFTS SURELY CONTRIBUTES.

The pigeons that performed well for us in the 5% in the yearling race was pure bred from the Staf v Reet pair" SAHARA" AND "SHER" and those performing in the 10% bred from "JARRAD" AND "LOVELY LADY"(DE KLAK) and the others from the De Zutter pigeons. This was the results in the old bird race.

In the yearling race our 5% birds was bred from our LOU WOUTER LINE and a daughter the famous "POTJIEKOS" - NATIONAL ACE PIGEON SOUTH AFRICA 2000. The other birds performing well in the 10% decends from our HOUBEN line, the DE KLAK line, again the LOU WOUTER X "POTJIEKOS" line and again from ''JARRAD'' AND ''LOVELY LADY'' (DE KLAK - and believe it or not closing with another from ''JARRAD'' AND ''LOVELY LADY''. SURELY ''JARRAD'' AND ''LOVELY LADY'' IS A SUPER PAIR.

COLD WEATHER HITS SOUTH AFRICA
19.06.2010

 

Extreme cold weather moved into our country the last 2 weeks and is hitting the youngbird and yearling racing very hard. All over reports are received of bad returns and loses. Many lofts are struggling to find form and there results are up and down race after race. Most of the lofts are open front lofts due to our warm sunny weather. South Africa is a sunshine country with a very short winter of approxamitaly 2 months (coldest period). The soccer world cup is also effected by this chilly weather.

Just like the rest of the fanciers our loft is struggling to find form as it is a loft that faces south east with very little sunlight during our coldest 2 months.

SO, PLEASE THINK OF OUR LOFT AND WARMER WEATHER IN YOUR PRAYERS. THE OTHER LOFTS CAN DO THEIR OWN PRAYING. PIGEONFANCIERS !!!!!
