The basis for this amazing success is without doubt Kaasboer, the number one stock breeder for Van de Wouwer. Every single pigeon in today’s Van de Wouwer collection is closely related to this phenomenal breeder, which he obtained from the late Jozef Goovaerts (Beerzel, BE). Kaasboer gave way to a spectacular number of champions in Gaston’s pigeon breed. Van de Wouwer pigeons are strong and powerful and they all share the same winning spirit.
The Van de Wouwer pigeon is particularly suited for being crossed with other bloodlines, as you can tell from the countless references that Gaston receives on a daily basis. The Kaasboer descendants have brought success to several lofts all around the world, and this explains the many references in recent seasons. We have included some of the most important achievements in other lofts:
