Gaston Van De Wouwer was lucky enough to get his hands on this pigeon from Jozef Goovaerts from Berlaar, Belgium. A golden breeder, one in a million pigeon. Every son and daughter was treated as gold in the breeding loft. They were part of a genetic lottery that carries on generation after generation.
So many different offspring of De Kaasboer have played a major impact around the globe for fanciers all over. From club and national races, to some of the biggest races in the world, the Kaasboer pigeons find their way to the top. This is no accident. Kaasboer pigeons have dominated middle distance racing for the last 23 years and show no sign of stopping.
NEW KIM an icon of a pigeon in the sport, just broke the world record sale price at €1.6m ($1.9m US).
We acquired our first kaasboer pigeons in 2019, and had high hopes for them. With the Kaasboer pigeons not being too popular in the United States, this was a perfect opportunity to make a name for ourselves breeding from them.
Immediately, we come across this superstar cock, bred from a heavily inbred Kaasboer pigeon, a McLaughlin Lofts foundation breeder. First year he breeds 2nd ace pigeon of the club and 5th ace of the combine. We called that hen "Freak of Nature". She scored in 8x races. Most races were side winds, being the furthest north in the combine, the pigeons had to cut through the wind to get home instead of "Flying with the wind". Two sisters were both diploma winners.
Fast forward to 2021. We bred an =1st in the United RPC with a half brother of this super cock when paired to the nestmate of the 2018 Hoosier Winner. Right off the bat, you can see how potent they are. We ended up crossing our ace hen to a chipo pigeon and bred another =``1st in the same race.
