Gebr. Limburg sells from their best racers and proven breeders from their super strain



The strain of Gebr. Limburg is a household name in the marathon world. Who doesn’t know Super Van Geel, The Spirit, Limbo Boy and Octopussy. A great strain that not only makes Gerard and John a top name, but has also strengthened many other top lofts. Here you should think of men like Arjan Beens, Kramer-Ouwehand and most recent comb. Hengst-Provoost, who won 1e national St. Vincent in sector 1. In short, a strain that colors the results in the past, but also in the present. As they have won very recently 1e and 2e national Aurillac, 1e NPO Ruffec, 2e NPO Perigueux and 6e NPO Limoges.

The basis of the strain of Gebr. Limburg was formed around the pigeons of Martha van Geel, Jan Theelen, Hermans and Wijnands. The characteristics of these families ensure that a variety of Gerard and John consists of strong pigeons with content, a strong will and perseverance, in which the color “red” is richly present.
The basis of the breeding philosophy of the men from Zuidveen is good with good. The good lines are crossed together and that has made good results for years. With the breeding not so much attention is paid to the construction. This is because the men do not have pigeons with a less or poor construction. Their pigeons are typified with a good bone structure, well muscled, ventbones that are closed, and a wing without and a wing without longer backflights. According to the men, this does not happen automatically, because in the initial period attention was paid to the construction of their pigeon stock. The aforementioned properties then had to be present to be a breeding pigeon. Compensation breeding is therefore not necessary. A little attention is also paid to the eyes. Light eyes are not preferred with these toppers. They prefer to see a dark eye with life in it. In a pairing the two pigeons will both have different eye colors. Furthermore, the reconnaissance must be complete and they must look smart and alert. Now you have a good idea of how they formed their world famous strain.

In the introduction you could read some top results from 2018. In terms of depth, the pigeons from the men of Zuidveen were also very strong. That is seen in the following races:

  • Limoges (27 entered 16 prizes): 6, 14, 32 etc against 1.358 pigeons
  • Perigueux (48 entered 32 prizes): 2, 10, 12, 23, 42, 44, 52 etc against 1.928 pigeons
  • Dax (3 entered 2 prizes): 29 and 118 against 504 pigeons
  • Orange (7 entered 5 prizes): 13, 45 etc against 676 pigeons
  • Bergerac (30 entered 17 prizes): 34, 56, 64 etc against 1.263 pigeons
