Gaston van de Wouwer
The golden strain of the ‘Kaasboer’
Super breeding cocks, cocks that are able to produce several generations of good
pigeons with different hens, are as rare as white ravens. Gaston van de Wouwer, from
Berlaar in Belgium, had the luck to acquire such a “white raven” from the late Jozef
Goovaerts (Berlaar, Belgium). BE98-6335690 was named after the profession of his
breeder and is now known around the world as KAASBOER (Cheesemonger), a cock
that produced excellent results in the lofts of Gaston himself, but also a long list of top
references on a national and international level.
A small selection of accomplishments by Gaston van de Wouwer in recent years is
impressive: 1st National Champion Long Distance Young Birds KBDB, two national
victories (Gueret and Bourges), two zonal wins (Poitiers and Argenton), 1st Semi-National
Vierzon, six provincial victories (Bourges, Salbris, Argenton, Blois, Vierzon and Montluçon),
1st Provincial Champion Young Birds KBDB Antwerp, 6th National Champion Long
Distance Young Birds KBDB, and 8th National Champion Young Birds KBDB.
Good performance in ones own loft do not suffice for Henk de Weerd to acquire pigeons for
his breeding centre. References are also incredibly important, as these indicate the strength
of genetics in a strain of pigeons. There is no lack of these at Gaston van de Wouwer, as can
be seen in the following selection from a long list of top references from lofts where descendants
of the KAASBOER are sensational performers:
