In their attempt to bring the best Belgian racing pigeons to their breeding loft, the English breeders’ team of Premier Stud obtained several pigeons from the collection of Gaston Van de Wouwer. They were quite impressed by the achievements of this champion from Berlaar.

Descendants of the impressive Kaasboer bloodline have gained excellent results in numerous pigeon lofts worldwide. This auction is a unique opportunity to obtain direct Van de Wouwer pigeons, especially because Gaston van de Wouwer sold his collection of old birds a short while ago.
