RONALD GEERDINK – HOOGERHEIDE
The youngsters offered by Ronald Geerdink have been specially bred for this auction and come from the top pigeons of Cor de Heijde, Jelle Jellema and Walter van der Meulen. It is a particularly vital group of youngsters from the best of Ronald Geerdink’s super breeding loft.
The dominance of Cor de Heijde, Walter van de Meulen (and now also Jacky de Bruine, who has had great success with the pigeons from Walter van de Meulen) and of course Jelle Jellema is great in the most important competition of the year, namely international Barcelona.
Given his love for Barcelona, Ronald Geerdink invested in these three top lofts in the extreme long distance.
From 2019 to 2022, Ronald Geerdink invested heavily at Cor de Heijde, Jelle Jellema and Walter van der Meulen. Pigeons from Jellema were bought including a son of “SILKE” (for 13,200 euros at PiPa), a magnificent hen called “INBRED MG430” and a granddaughter of “SILKE” (won the 1st national Barcelona 2020, 2nd international Barcelona, 3rd national Narbonne and 4th international Narbonne 2016).
This year a daughter of “NOUD” was bought. This miracle on wings won the 6th national Barcelona 2021 and the 24th national Barcelona 2020! “NOUD” is a grandchild of “SILKE” and “MG430”. Geerdink also bought a son of “SAAR” (2nd national Barcelona 2017) coupled to “NEW JADE 1” (sire of a.o. the 3rd national Perpignan), a son of “IMKE” (7th national Pau 2020), a daughter of “MARLY” (18th national Barcelona 2020) and a daughter of “ROMY” (3rd national Barcelona 2019 and 29th national Perpignan).
Cor de Heijde has been one of the best long distance players in Europe for many years. The “Heijde pigeon” performs particularly well under all weather conditions and that from 800 kilometers to 1,300 kilometers. Every year Cor pure knows to win top prizes, national victories, national and international ace pigeons are achieved and it seems that ‘de Heijde pigeon’ is only getting stronger. On the queen flight Barcelona has won Cor the past 9 years prize 2-2-4-6-8-11-11-12-17-24-26-29 National Barcelona with an average of 14 pigeons entered!
Others who have pigeons from Cor, such as Frans Bungeneers and Gerard Schalkwijk achieve huge successes. Ronald Geerdink bought children/grandchildren of the best Cor de Heijde pigeons: especially the pigeons from the line of “DON MICHEL” and of course the “JONGE DON MICHEL” (three children and one grandchild of “JONGE DON MICHEL” won in the first eleven national Barcelona) were bought. In 2021, a very thoroughbred daughter of “NAOMI” was also purchased. “NAOMI” won the 6th National Barcelona 5,423 pigeons, 6th International Barcelona 20,669 pigeons, 29th National Barcelona 6,909 pigeons, 72nd International Barcelona 25,224 pigeons and 21st National Perpignan 2,181 hens. “NAOMI” was 1st European Ace pigeon from Barcelona over 2 years with the 6th and 72nd prize Internationally!
Finally, Ronald Geerdink bought from top player Walter (P.W.A.) van der Meulen. This fancier has won national Barcelona prizes 5, 9, 10, 17, 19, 21 and 32 in recent years!
Jacky de Bruine won 1st National Barcelona (4th International) in 2018 with a pigeon bred by Walter. In 2019, De Bruine, who almost exclusively has pigeons from Walter van der Meulen, won 2nd National (8th International) and 26th National Barcelona! In 2021 again the 14th and 47th National Barcelona and seven prizes from the ten pigeons entered!
Walter van der Meulen sold 17 youngsters in an auction, all out of only top pigeons from National Barcelona. Of the 17 pigeons, the 13 most promising pigeons were bought to build up a strong stock, especially for Barcelona, together with the de Heijde and Jellema pigeons. A huge investment, but only the best is good enough for Ronald Geerdink’s breeding loft!
Pigeons from Cor de Heijde are rarely offered and the youngsters from ‘SILKE’ (the 1st national Barcelona 2020) are unique. In this auction you have the opportunity to buy youngsters from the fantastic breeding loft of Ronald Geerdink.
