Verreckt-Rutten-Deplae (Tessenderlo, BE), the Golden Pigeon Loft!

07 Nov 2019

In August you could already read that they keep pulling out all stops in Tessenderlo. The results do not go by unnoticed, certainly not because time and time again it is about pigeons from that same fantastic, cast-iron breeding lines based on the breeding couple 'Dikke Lowet' x 'Lang Lowet'.

As they do not like to play with too many racing pigeons in Tessenderlo and the selection is very hard in view of the abundancy of talent in the flying lofts, they decided to sell the entire racing team excluding the 2017 youngsters and the 2018 yearlings. So let us take look at basic lines again and how they have proven themselves as top breeders. This can be found in almost every racer that is auctioned off.

Basic breeding couple 'Dikke Lowet' X 'Lang Lowet'

In (almost) all pedigrees you will find links to their basic breeding pair 'Dikke Lowet' (BE97-6499247) X 'Lang Lowet' (BE97-6499255). They are parents, grandparents and great-grandparents of more than 40 different 1st National and 1st Provincial winners. A list of victories of their descendants, going beyond 1st prizes would take us much too far as this list truely is infinitely long. Not even all 1st prizes are listed below:

This means that the nest sisters are inbreed products of the basic breeding couple 'Dikke Lowet' x 'Lang Lowet'

Thus all the pigeons are related to each other one way or the other and rightly so they manage to breed top pigeons again and again. And we have only mentioned the pigeons upto 2016. Amongst the remaining pigeons of 2017 and 2018 there is the same of perhaps even more talent. Next season we will certainly come back to this and you will definitely see the Verreckt-Rutten-Deplae team appear at the top of the rankings again.

Agy, Robert and Pablo, first of all thank you very much for your confidence in Herbots to allow us to auction off these toppers and we wish you good luck for the upcoming season 2019.
