Ronald Geerdink (Hoogerheide) : “success is for me a logic consequence from my search for the best pigeons from the international extreme long distance”
03 Mar 2023
Ronald had 3 operations in 2020 on his head and was the benign tumour was removed. Due to the good forecasts Ronald build a new pigeon loft and invested in pigeons from the best extreme long distance racers from Holland. Eight pigeons from Jellama including a marvellous son to ‘Silke’ for 13,200€ and a magnificent hen ‘Inbred MG 430’. ‘Silke’ won 1st national Barcelona 2020, 2nd international Barcelona, 3rd national Narbonne and 4 international Narbonne 2016. Unfortunately is this amazing pigeon stolen on the 6th of October 2020 from Jelle’s loft!
At Cor de Heijde he bought 13 pigeons. Especially the pigeons out of the strain of ‘Don Michel’ and off course the ‘Jonge Don Michel’, who is father to 3 children and one grandchild within the 1st 11 National Barcelona. Also in 2021 a very good daughter to ‘Naomi’ was bought. “Naomi” won at Cor de Heijde the 6th National Barcelona 5,423 pigeons, 6th International Barcelona 20,669 pigeons, 29th national Barcelona 6,909 pigeons, 72nd international Barcelona 25,224 pigeons and the 21st national Perpignan 2,181 hens. ‘Naomi’ was 1st European Ace bird Barcelona over 2 years with the 6th and 72nd prize internationally!
Unfortunately also at Cor was broken in a week before Jelle and all breeding cocks inclusive base breeder of the current successes the ‘Jonge Don Michel’ were stolen! What a disaster for Cor who had already 3 breaking ins by now. Since then Ronald doesn’t keep his breeders any more at his house. Also are the racing lofts secured in many different ways.
And last but not least Ronald Geerdink bought pigeons from top pigeon fanciers Walter (P.W.A.) van der Meulen from Sirjansland. This fancier won the past few years National Barcelona the 5, 9, 10, 17, 19, 21 and 32 prize! Average Walter has a prize percentage of 61% on this race.
Jacky de Bruine won in 2018 with a pigeon bred by Walter the 1st National Barcelona
(4th International). In 2019 won de Bruine who almost only has pigeons from Walter van der Meulen the 2nd National (8th International) and 26th National Barcelona! In 2021 again the 14th and 47th National Barcelona and 7 prizes on the 10 basketed pigeons!
Within 6 years of time Ronald Geerdink races with the best of the best on the international extreme long distance. In 2018 Ronald won the 1st place of the National Marathon championship from ZLU, the most prestigious extreme long distance title of Holland. This isn’t a coincidence anymore but caused by a few different things.
First of all Geerdink invested at the best long distance racers from Western-Europe.
See the former mentioned investments. Another reason for the always getting better results is the strong selection of the pigeons. The nest game gives a good view on both the cocks and hens. This way you can select on both sides and this only makes your lofts stronger. Pigeons who race once on Agen and are being basketed twice as yearling on the extreme long distance need to have two prizes over these 2 years or once a head prize. This selection takes care of always better results both on the own loft as with others.
Time is valuable
Ronald Geerdink is the owner and executive director of Advaita-Advice, a company who helps high-net-wort entrepreneurs get the best out of their contacts with the bank in a matter of asset management. For the customer are looked for top investments and are costs being reduced. Especially due to this busy and time consuming job the pigeons have to get to get use to this. ‘Another fancier who is at home and can give care on a regular base is always a step ahead of me, but it just isn’t another way. These fanciers can get more out of their pigeons which they bought at my place and many fancier have amazing results due to this with my pigeons,” according Ronald Geerdink. In the past few years 17 1st prizes were won on NPO, national or international level with pigeons from Ronald Geerdink, this can’t be a coincidence any more !
