After sensational transfers two top cocks are moving to Greenfield Stud (Updated)

28/07/2017

Always searching for the best there is for sale is one of the tools Hans and Evert Jan use in their drive to constantly improve the quality of their breeding loft.
The sensational purchase of the "Nieuwe Olympiade" is still fresh in our memory. But, the hunger for the best of the best will never be appeased for Hans and Evert Jan.
Recently the have purchased two top cocks.
 
From Hans Boenders we purchased the NL12-1204759 - (click on the ring number for the full pedigree) "Olympic Hans" who was the 1st National Olympiade pigeon Netherlands in Category D (All-round) and "Olympic Hans" will represent the Netherlands at the Olympiade 2017 in Brussels.
"Olympic Hans" won a.o:

  • 1st NPO Chateauroux 709 km against 3,120 pigeons
  • 2nd NPO Nanteuil 448 km against 4,476 pigeons
  • 9th NPO Bourges 659 km against 3,815 pigeons
  • 17th NPO Auxere 550 km against 5,518 pigeons
  • 1st Mons against 1,847 pigeons
  • 1st Peronne against 683 pigeons
  • 3rd Heusden against 2,537 pigeons
  • 3rd National Ace Pigeon WHZB One-day distance 2015

Hans Boenders received this cock as a youngster from his best friend Theo Hutten. Theo bred this blue topper out of "Olympic Willem" a cock coming directly from Willem de Bruijn out of his "Olympic Hurricane", an Olympiade pigeon in Poznan 2011. The mother is a hen Theo bred together with Pieter Veenstra out of "Olympic Hanne", an Olympiade pigeon in Poznan 2011. In the genes of "Olympic Hans" we find those of many top pigeon, many of the genes on his father’s side have a high Heremans-Ceusters content, of which some come from the Super Pair "Rossi" x "Spinneke".  

 

 
The transfer of "Olympic Hans" is being celebrated.


But that wasn’t the only sensational acquisition, because when Hans and Evert Jan saw that Wolfgang Roeper was selling BE10-6146241 (click on the band number for the full pedigree) in a Herbots online auction, their hearts began to beat faster.
This 100% Heremans pigeon, had shown that winning was in its genes.



This class act represented Germany as the 1st National Olympiade Pigeon Cat. D (All-round) at the Olympiade in Nitra 2013.
He was also the 2nd National Ace Cock Germany 2012, winning 3 first prizes.
The best positons won by "Olympic Leo" are:

  • 1st Kalisz 429 km against 3,756 pigeons
  • 1st Neubrandenburg 233 km against 3,517 pigeons
  • 1st Neubrandenburg 234 km against 1,050 pigeons
  • 2nd Lubieszyn 313 km against 2,219 pigeons
  • 3rd Kalisz 429 km against 5,183 pigeons
  • 3rd Lubieszyn 313 km against 1,237 pigeons
  • 6th Lubieszyn 313 km against 1,089 pigeons
  • 8th Kalisz 429 km against 3,159 pigeons
  • 8th Recz 392 km against 1,054 pigeons
  • 9th Nakio 529 against 1,148 pigeons

There was tremendous interest in this pigeon but eventually the competition was shaken off and this super pigeon will also come to Brummen. You can read the report on this auction at Herbots.be.

From now on for the rest of its days this cock will be known as "Olympic Leo" after Leo Heremans.
 
Two super acquisitions that will ensure that the quality of breeding lofts will get a new boost on the way to the ultimate goal of, "Breeding the best all-round pigeon in the world for distances from 100 to 700 km".
 
These purchases are an addition to the Heremans top cocks already in our breeding lofts, such as "Euro", "Jackpot", "Rossi" and the "Nieuwe Olympiade".
