R.A. Bakker & Zn. Top on the long distance races in The Netherlands

22 Nov 2022

2021 was the last year Ruud raced from his address in Veenendaal because of the decision to move to a new house in Zoelen. Because they have much more space available there, Ruud and Dolf can practice the sport and enjoy it in the way they always wanted to. A new start was made, the youngbirds already were housed in and raced from a temporary loft build in a barn at this new home. Moving takes a lot of time and with that taking care of a loft in Veenendaal and Zoelen is far from ideal. The temporary loft was also not very good, but a small selection of these youngsters remained for the 2022 season. The “old” team of racing birds were sold in an auction in the fall of 2021. The breeders all moved to Zoelen.

Unfortunately, the season could not be completed due to an outbreak of bird flu.

 

Dolf and Ruud never practiced the sport without merit but wanted more. A restart was planned to achieve the objective performing on the national N.U. and NPO long distance races (500-700 km).  In order to achieve this, they needed better but particularly suitable pigeons to come to Veenendaal. The search was not very difficult, you could and still can not ignore the achievements of Gerard Koopman, especially on the NPO long distance races. In 2007 the step was made and 25 pigeons were purchased and moved to the breeding lofts in Veenendaal, shortly thereafter the first successes came. 

Some base breeders

“Valitas”,

 a mealy cock, he is offspring of the old strain from before the Koopman period. Not exactly knowing the pedigree of this classpigeon he is really at the beginning of the strain "Valitas", his genes already been mixed substantially with the Koopman pigeons. Ofcourse his career as racer made that possible with no less than 4 top-ten listings on the important NPO long distance races. He won a.o.:

Because of all this “Valitas” spend some time in Gerard Koopmans breeding loft. At this time "Valitas" together with four of his co-bred children has a prominent place in the breedingloft of Dolf and Ruud. 
His strain became very important in Veenendaal. Sadly since some time“Valitas” does not fertilise anymore. 

“Germiny”. A fantastic racer, especially on the long distance NPO-races. He won amongst other: 
1st prize NPO Blois against 2.310 pigeons, is also 7th international N.U against 5.967 p. 
2nd prize NPO Bourges against 4.814 pigeons, is also 3rd price international N.U. against 14.226 p. 
6th prize NPO Bourges against 4.118 pigeons.
15th prize NPO Issoudun against 2.895 pigeons, is also 18th International N.U. against 6.604 p.
With results like these he really earned his place on the breedingloft. 

“Germiny” already (grand) father of several winner/top-10 racers

“Gene”. He is brother to “Germiny” and won 5 top-10 rankings on NPO long distance races. He won a.o.: 
3rd Vierzon against 2.671 pigeons is also 3rd in sector 3 against 8.065 and 3rd NU against 11.193.
3rd NPO Gien against 4.607 pigeons, 6th Chateaudun against 1.974 pigeons, Bourges 7th against 2.923 pigeons is also 7th NU against 16.658 pigeons.
