Methods- Selection for Breeder
It is important for the selection to play top on One Loft Race, that you bring top lines. Only Top x Top blood brings good. And youngsters that are ripe very early. The plumage must be great, not everything has to be fulfilled, the results show the successI like small to medium sized pigeons. For me it is always mated that for example large with small pigeons are bred.
I test all healthy youngsters! The results are proof of what is good. I prefer hens but cocks also go well. I like to test all lines!
Only healthy pigeons fly well, so it is very important to me to have the pigeons healthy in my loft. The air has to be right and there is no wind in the loft, but you also have to be able to get outside. I also keep the pigeons healthy with natural products N-Fit powder!
It is the best product that I got to know. Pigeons are premature and great plumage and health. Perfect for one loft race.
Since beginning in 2015 some of my favorite wins are, I now focus on One Loft Race, Victoria Falls, Pattaya, Golden Algarve Race, Cap Town South Africa and FCI World Ranking.

Simon lives in Eschlikon, Switzerland with wife and son, and there he works in their own business with floors. My most important mentors are Thomas Kornelius and Georg Fröhlingsdorf Pigeons Breeders Germany.


I currently believe very much in pigeons from the Romario line for tough racing and Thomas 6 Pigeon (Mike Ganus) bred by Thomas Kornelius. My super pair of Blue Shark x Half-Sister Sanjay 18th Place Final South Africa.

Also my great lines from Moledo Races with Braveheart line! Georg Fröhlingsdorf from Germany Line Josef, Tauben, has also determined super pigeons for the future at One Loft Race.

Also the world class line Little Miss Nikki by Tom Schilling.

In the future I will build on this line !!! Lines for winners!

Especially for Pigeon Bids Simon bred and selected 7 OLR birds!
