26/05/2020 - The PIPA auction involving descendants from their best breeding and racing birds from 2011 to 2018 takes place from 1st to 14th of June. Also included in this auction is the national winner in Chateauroux BE 2019! You can already take a look at the online catalogue.
26/05/2020 - As you have already seen, PIPA’s editorial website has been thoroughly revamped. Our IT team spent almost a year silently developing a modern new website. Today, 26th of May 2020, we are proud and happy to introduce the latest rendition of our PIPA website.
24/05/2020 - The following auctions came to a close on Sunday 24th of May: May Auction, Jos Thoné (BE), Sky Chen (CN), Rik Cools (BE), Gevaert-Lannoo (BE), Sangers Pigeons (BE), PIPA Breeding (BE), Exclusive Jelle Jellema collection & Mike Ganus (US).
23/05/2020 - Could this be the big secret behind the success story of the Gevaert-Lannoo combination? They built their breeding loft around proven racing hens that have multiple provincial victories, great results and ace pigeon titles at national or international level to their name, most of which were won here at home.
22/05/2020 - Jos Thoné from As in Limburg is one of those fanciers that can easily adapt to different times and different seasons. This has been the order of the day since his debut season back in 1991. Throughout this crisis, the grandmaster has come up with solutions like no one else can!
22/05/2020 - Rik Cools is one of the leading names in the middle distance. In 2019 he wins for instance a title of 2nd National Ace Pigeon KBDB young birds, and he is also this season's 1st provincial champion middle distance.
20/05/2020 02:00 - One of the biggest fanciers in International pigeon racing is without a doubt Mike Ganus. About a decade ago Mike started to aim for the biggest one loft races, this with great success!
19/05/2020 - Team Sangers is always a force to be reckoned with at international level. They have been racing at the highest level season after season, with the help of some of the best performing Van Den Bulck pigeons, and the world's most comprehensive collection of Stefaan Lambrechts birds.
19/05/2020 - This year there will be no International PigeonMarket in Kassel/Germany. Because of the unpredictable developments due to the corona crisis, especially as trade fair planning is concerned, we unfortunately see no other option.
16/05/2020 - We received some kind words of thanks and appreciation from the Verschoot family after their successful PIPA auction, which closed last Sunday. They would like to thank all bidders and buyers for their trust.
09/05/2020 - Esmee is one of the most iconic hens of The Netherlands the last decade. Father & son Elzinga explain how good she really was and how her grandson Prince Esmee took over from her after Esmee died.
09/05/2020 - Joël Verschoot claimed a title of 1st Allround Champion in the Entente Belge and 12th Nat. Champion long distance YLs KBDB in the very first racing season since his online auction (involving all old birds from 2016 and older). It feels as if he has never really been gone!
09/05/2020 - I have the impression that fanciers are usually quick to describe their pigeons as super class breeders, hidden gem or something along those lines, especially in adverts. It is true that a number of pigeons have gained status over the years.
07/05/2020 - Michel Verweij and Peter De Haan decided in 2002 to engage in co-breeding. Just like Milos, also their friendship was born. In the years that followed, Milos turned out to be a top breeder and they both joined forces.
06/05/2020 - Wout Spierings has managed to deliver in the one day long distance, his favourite competition, for quite a number of years now. This is mainly thanks to a collection of very strong one day long distance birds that have produced great results across many generations, both in national and international competitions.
