STEENBERGEN STEFAN – HERK DE STAD
1st NATIONAL NARBONNE YEARLINGS 

Steenbergen Stefan logo

 

The second international race for the year birds is after Agen, traditionally Narbonne. After 850km, which is usually very hard, we can find the winner in Herk-de-Stad. This time not just in a true long distance colony but in a real top colony all-round. Stefan Steenbergen won in 2015 national Bourges year birds, something completely different as this race but also this kind of race is something he can win. He only basketed two year birds, 2 full sisters in who he truly believed in. They come out of a full sister of his super long distance racer ‘Iron Man’, who won: 1 National z Montauban, 4th Provincial Brive and 5th Provincial Brive. Out of the grandparents more than one super was bred, something you can read further in this article.

The stimulus to race Narbonne came when he went to Narbonne a  few years ago with one single pigeon that won the 6th National! Now he wanted to enter this race again but didn’t think he was able to win it.

Racing team year birds on total widowhood.

The racing team of the year birds are being raced on total widowhood, this to test both the sexes and to limit the amount of pigeons.

How they were being coupled as partners? Well, in the winter period they really can rest and go through the moulting entirely. As from the middle of February he let them stay together for 5 days and then they also get a cure against tricho. On the first of March the cocks move onto the racing loft so they can choose their box. Middle of March they are being coupled a second time for about 3 to 4 days. As from then the shorter training flights start off and after one month he will have 5 couples or 10 but this will built up systematically. Sometimes one of the partners stays home so they have to go and look for a new love and this is how a lot of animo stays on the loft.

They train daily once a day, this is a fixed rule at the Steenbergen loft. Rather one time really well than twice half. When the pigeons come out is depending on when the neighbours, who also race with hens, let their pigeons out. You don’t have to make it more difficult for yourself as it already is.

They never come together as a motivation before a race, I go onto the loft and take them just as they are. One thing I do think that is really important, is to give the pigeons a lot of faith and interfere at the right time or excite them once in a while.

When they get home bad, I drive them to Namen and make sure they get home together and leave them be for about one hour, a short race that boosts their confidence.

Or, sometimes, when the hens are training, I dare to open all the sputniks of the widow cocks and let the fire work for about 10 to 15 minutes. These small things make more difference according to Stefan rather than motivate them just before the race.

After the race they always can stay together until the time I get home from the club, this will always be around 1 to two hours.

In a matter of feeding, I give daily my own mixture. Besides these mixtures I use a lot of natural products like onions, garlic and juniper, these are being mixed together. At home coming, they get every week B.S. from Belgica de Weerdt and that’s it. Also medically I didn’t have to do a lot this year, except once a treatment for the airways.

Stefan, congratulations on this wonderful victory from the entire HERBOTS TEAM.
