R.A. Bakker & Zoon – Veenendaal

R.A. Bakker & Zoon, a very well known name in the National and International Pigeonsports, because of their excellent results. Father Dolf and son Ruud are (one of) the best loft(s) in The Netherlands on the NPO one day long distance races (500 – 700km) !!

The base of this toploft is formed by pigeons of Gerard Koopman! One can say that 95% of the birds in their lofts is from Koopman origin.

In 2007 Dolf and Ruud Bakker purchased 25 pigeons from C. & G. Koopman and moved them to the breeding lofts in Veenendaal immediately, shortly thereafter the first successes came.

Almost every year since the start in 2007, a few Koopman birds were purchased to enrich the exclusive breeding loft. But also from the great loft of Dirk van Dyck, two children, including the last son of the famous “Di Caprio” (the legendary pigeon raced by Heremans-Ceusters) were bought.

Some key pigeons of the loft are:

“Panamera” winner of:

1st N.U. Blois against 13.898 pigeons (= 3rd National against 25.597 pigeons)

2nd NPO Blois against 8.482 pigeons

2nd NPO Salbris against 4.665 pigeons

4th Breteuil against 20.797 pigeons

Because of these excellent performances he was awarded the titel Best Long Distance pigeon 2012-2013 in the Dutch National competition “The Fondspiegel”!


“Valitas” winner of:
1st N.U. Blois against 9.586

2nd NPO Bourges against 7.356

6th  NPO Salbris against 5.747

10th NPO Tours against 5.812

10th NPO Blois against 5.330

Valitas is offspring of the old strain from before the Koopman period. Not exactly knowing the pedigree of this classpigeon, as he is really “from the old days” at the beginning of the strain.

Because of these splendid results, “Valitas” spent some time in Gerard Koopmans breeding loft! Nowadays, “Valitas” together with four of his co-bred children has a prominent place in the

breedingloft of Dolf and Ruud.


“Malika” winner of:

1st NPO Blois against 6.613 pigeons

3rd NPO Bourges against 5.177 pigeons
