The Barcelona International is considered by many in the Fancy as the No. 1 race in the World, because it is flown over an extreme long distance and also because it is ultra competitive with 20000+ pigeons competing most years from multiple European countries. To win, or be highly placed, at National or International level, is the ultimate proof of a pigeon’s endurance and determination and also the Fancier’s loft management and motivational skills.
Great Barcelona families are hard to find and buy into, but one such family is that of the Belgian fancier, Daniël Aerens, who has had countless pigeons score from Barcelona and other long distance race points, including in 2013 winning 1st Hens International, 4th National, 5th International with “I Have a Dream“.
Gregory Bros (Rathnew, Ireland) are making 17 mature pigeons available in this Auction, all bred by Daniël. Whether you already have an established long distance breeding team, and are looking to blend in additional lines, or you are embarking on or progressing through a long term project to build up a team to compete at Barcelona, other International race points, or 500 mile classic/national races, these pigeons should be of interest to you.
For anyone still using a loft book, word document, or spreadsheet to keep track of their pigeons, Autumn really is the optimum time to invest is a professional computer database. Our “LoftOrganiser” not only keeps detailed individual records, but through its indexing capability can easily generate 3 and 4 generation pedigrees for you. Yes, you will have to invest some time in entering the records for the first time but the rewards are then instantaneous and infinite! Small and large lofts, even commercial studs, gain equal pro-rate benefits. Not sure and have questions? Fire away, we’re here to help you through the process.
To reflect how much we value and appreciate bidders in the auctions and sales that we host, we will be creating a ‘loyalty’ scheme whereby successful bidders accrue loyalty points in much the same way as you do with supermarkets and online retailers. Points can be redeemed against future successful bids and purchases. I don’t think any other auction site currently offers its customers a reward for their custom and loyalty … perhaps they don’t appreciate you as much as we do and as much as they should. Create yourself an online account now, get involved in bidding for some excellent pigeons when they’re online, and start banking your loyalty points.
