*This picture is of Brave our top breeding son of Leo Heremans direct from the famous pair Nieuwe Rossi x Eenoogje. Brave and his nest brother Max have quite incredible breeding records. Brave paired to a daughter of Bandit x Moonglow bred our own best youngster in Nieuwendijk last year winning 6th Asduif Natour in the Union de Baronie Combine. Tim Atkins has a brother and sister bred from Brave with Liberty (Atilla x Little Star) that has bred 12 x 1sts between them. Dean Cartmell has his own great breeding son of Brave x Little Star that has now bred winners with five different hens.
It is impossible to establish exact records of his winners but a conservative estimate would easily put his grandchildren winning well over 50 x 1sts.
As a matter of interest, Dean bought his good Brave breeding cock from one of our auctions in Doncaster for £130! That proves two things…Dean is a great selector and we always try to offer the best we can at auction at prices that should suit everyone. Bargains can be had.
