Ludwig Veulemans (Halen) wins 1st Provincial Argenton 756 old birds

05 Jul 2024

The victory for Limburg on the national flight from Argenton goes to Ludwig Veulemans, who wins his 2nd provincial victory of the season. Last time was at Tulle and now Argenton. The winner here was a 3-year-old widower who already has a lot of experience and this year already had Bourges, Valence and Argenton in his wings. 

Ludwig takes care of the care of the cocks while wife Tuy takes care of the hens. But if Ludwig doesn't have time because of his busy job as a fruit grower, she can safely entrust his pigeons to his wife. 

Ludwig had a word of thanks for Wim Bonné. Thanks to Wim Bonné, I only started focusing on the long distance races last year. The reason for this was that Wim said that my pigeons always came home quickly in bad weather, so they still had a reserve. That's why I only started trying that in 2023 and with success.
