History family de Weerd

Henk de Weerd
Since 1972 Dr. Henk de Weerd has specialised himself in the medical and sports-technical guidance of racing pigeons. To answer the many questions about the sport, particularly with regard to modern and responsible medical supervision, a team of specialists is employed in his clinic in Breda. henk de weerd Many famous fanciers from home and abroad privately seek consultations with veterinary surgeon de Weerd at his clinic about a vast amount of pigeon related subjects including therapies and the prevention of diseases also the techniques in the sport, loft construction and design plus advice on feeding and breeding programs. Veterinary-technical advice to get pigeons in top condition also form an important part of loft practice management. Figures reveal that over 100,000 fanciers worldwide rely on the expertise and know-how of Pigeon Clinic Breda. As a young boy Dr. De Weerd visited many top lofts in Belgium and Holland with his famous father Piet de Weerd. Subsequently they visited Germany, U.S.A., Canada, Mexico,Thailand, U.K., Taiwan, China, Japan, Spain, Portugal, etc. In most cases, these trips were attended by the lectures given by Piet and Dr. Henk de Weerd on topics such as selection and the most common pigeon diseases. All Belgica De Weerd products are developed after our research in Breda and are produced according to GMP standards. Our veterinary products are registered and licensed in Europe. Only after a long test period by top players, the products were introduced on the market. Of course, all products are doping free. Belgica De Weerd products are successfully used in over 25 countries. In the Netherlands more than 70% of the top players use the success program of Belgica De Weerd. Meanwhile there is also a Belgica De Weerd pigeon clinic in Colchester (Essex) and recently a new Belgica De Weerd pigeon clinic in Beijing has been opened, next to the Olympic Stadium!

Piet de Weerd
During a period of over 60 years, Piet de Weerd achieved worldwide acknowledgement due to his manner in selecting and pairing the best and most valuable pigeons in the world. His name is known in the furthest corners of the globe and many fanciers read his articles and books which are written in his own down-to-earth characteristic manner and have become standard works of the sport.

Fascinating, informative and above all objectively, he let the reader become acquainted with the greats of the international pigeon sport and he tried to share his vision on the conditions that a good pigeon would have to meet to anyone who wanted. He received invitations from all over the world to share his knowledge with international fanciers during personal visits.

Piet de Weerd traveled dozens of times across the Atlantic to the United States and Mexico, but also South Africa and the Far East were visited several times which makes this eminence grise of the Dutch pigeon sport emerged as the world’s best specialist field of selection and breeding.

Aarden strain
He established conclusive proof of his unequalled mastery directly after World War II during the period that Jan Aarden tried to build up an iron strain for the toughest overnight races and that he had succeeded in his plans was due to Piet de Weerd. The absolute mother of the Aarden strain, the ‘Oomen hen’ (H45-907764) by Jan Aarden also called the “Delbar hen”, was in fact a gift from Piet de Weerd to Jan Aarden during one of his many visits he made to Aarden in Steenbergen  during that period.

The ‘500’ Van Agtmaal descended from her litter sister 45-907765 which was donated  by Piet de Weerd to Suus van den Berg in Steenbergen. Several times he brought one or more pigeons which were crossed with the stockbirds present in the lofts Aarden on his advice.

So we may say he is the architect of the Aarden strain. Purchases and pairings of top pigeons which took the name de Weerd in the international pigeon sport at the highest plan, included: the purchase of the “Wondervoske” from the Janssen Brothers for the combination of Oomens-Tuijn; the pairing of the “Franck” (44-306686) to ‘Heroine’ (47-1008650) on the loft of George Fabry in Liège, from which the ‘Porthos’ and ‘Favori’ were born, two cocks that gave the name Fabry worldwide recognition.
Also the purchase of the “Piet” (strain Meulemans)  which was transferred to Raymund Hermes in Germany was a bullseye and in South Africa, fanciers are to this day talking about the incredible breeding results of the “Stallion Jan Aarden”, a pigeon which was bred by Piet de Weerd.

The inimitable way Piet used a few ‘Albert Van Cauwenbergh’ pigeons contributed to the deserved glory of this great master in the sport.
The famous ‘Didi’-line of Van de Broucke-De Weerd also was the result of many years of selection and inbreeding by Piet de Weerd.
Didi was in 1989 the National Ace pigeon Long Distance in Belgium with an incredibly low coefficient and its descendant ‘Kleine Didi’ from Etienne Devos was, if possible, even more famous.

Furthermore, the base at Kipp und Söhne consisted of six pigeons from Piet de Weerd. The three National Ace Pigeons Fond (Long Distance) in 2000 from Werner Bölting (D) were all 50% Piet and Henk de Weerd pigeons (Old Cruco and Buffalo-line).
