Diamond Pigeon Stud participates yearly in the Northern Cape Racing Pigeon Federation with a membership close to 140 fanciers. The Northern Cape with Kimberley as its Capital is famous for the mining of diamonds and wildlife farms.

It is also home to some of South Africa's top pigeon fanciers and it was proven so during the period 1999 - 2001 when the National Infotec Competition was flown where all South African fanciers participated in. Nearly 20% of the first 100 positions overall in this three year period was won by fanciers from the Northern Cape.

Diamond Pigeon Stud was placed the fourth best on average over this 3 year period in the country and also featured amongst the first thirty places every year in this competition. In the last ten years this pigeon stud won more than 200 first prizes and won the annual Federation Championship 4 times and was runner-up 3 times.

We were also selected to represent the South African squad of breeders for the World Championships at Sun City during 2001. Truly one of the great South African lofts.

2011:

We all know what happens when results are tops.The buyers flood your loft in search of your best pigeons and we fell into the same trap by selling our best and hundreds of youngsters.Money was flowing and soon results started to fade.It was my good friend Louis Vermeulen (3 x Federation Champion),that inspired me to retain our basis birds and to introduce the best lines the world can offer . After importing these top birds and mating them with our basis the result was great, winning 12 races,15 seconds and 12 thirds during the 2011 season.

We also won; 2nd Short Distance Champion Club( lost by 1 point)

1st Middle Distance Champion Club

1st Long Distance Champion Club

2012:

CLUB

What an enjoyable season.Our club atmosphere was super and the members strived to let the sun shine over everybody.Racing was very competitive and even the weakest fancier impressed with winning 2 races over the long distance.

Our pigeons continued their winning performance. We could trust them to arrive home weekend after weekend in good time, scoring many position on the result sheet.

The Koopman,Lou wouter and De Rauw Sablon pigeons were very impressive.Very few Houben,Staf v Reet and Janssen pigeons were in our race team as most of them was ordered by fanciers.The Geerinckx birds was excellent on the short distance and surely a family to build on for future sprint races.

On club level we won the Short Distance Championships,Yearling Championships and the Long Distance Championships.

We finished second in the Middle Distance Championships and the Open Championships and the Overall Club Championships.

We also are the proud owner of the 1st Ace Pigeon Yearlings in the Club with a Geerinckx bred bird out of the line of "Gladiator" and "Wittekop Sylvester".

Test for forbidden substances revealed that some fanciers finishing ahead of us in all the Championship series tested positive and it also became known which of their friend were using the steaming boxes that are becoming so popular amoungst the fanciers that do not trust the natural ability of their pigeons.Now the result sheet turns far more into our favour.Sad!

ANOTHER SUPER SEASON
10.11.2013

 

 

It is always nice to sit back and analize the results of a season to establise whether your loft are improving. I can surely say that the pigeons we introduced lately had a big effect on our results. They are also tough and can take harder races weekend after weekend when they are on form.

The few Koopman birds we had in the race loft were very good and so also the Sablon and the Lou Wouters. The Geerinckx birds are super. I wish we could have more of them in the race loft.

What must always be remembered is that we fly with the youngsters that are not ordered and those we feel is not good enough to send to customers. REALLY THE B TEAM,BUT STILL THEY BRING THEIR SIDE.

 

We were blessed with the following results:
