Kees van de Beek in a nutshell

The name of Kees van de Beek isn’t one that is very known in the worldwide pigeon world, nevertheless he has been racing for 40 years now and this not without success. He got to know pigeonsport via a classmate that had pigeons as a hobby. Kees is a member of the PV ‘Juliana’ in Heerde and races in Kring 4 Region North-East Department 8 GOU and belongs to the better racers of his region. Three years ago, Kees got very bad luck as he got a visit from a stone marten which killed all his racing cocks and breeders. After doubting for a while whether he would start over again, he found the courage to give a go once more. But now as he will be responsible for the racing hens on the short distance, the racing hens on the one day long distance and a group of youngsters at the huge lofts in Brummen at Eijerkamp, there is no other solution then to stop racing at home. A very hard decision when you have been racing for 40 years from your own home, but this is an opportunity that only comes by once in a life time.

With the reinforcement of the pigeons from the Eijerkamp family, the best from Heremans-Ceusters, Louis van Loon and Eijerkamp-Janssens, it didn’t take long before Kees set amazing results again. And 3 years after the painful killing from the stone marten, Kees wins the 1st National Ace bird Middle Distance, stopping with an achievement like this is something special. The Eijerkamp pigeons did very well when crossed in with his own strong strains from Kees van de Beek. He has got two big base lines namely the strain from the ‘De 700’ (NL95-5529700) where the ‘Golden Grizzle’ – strain comes from and from the strain of ‘Topper’ (NL10-1304744), a super racer and breeder. These 2 strains crossed in with the Eijerkamp strains gave fireworks in Heerde.
