Just this weekend Rik Hermans scored 2nd,6th,13th,15th,36th,43rd,51st,95th and many more early prizes in the La Souterraine National against 16,615 young birds. We was very pleased to hear from Rik that he scored 13th National with a young cock BE16-6128512 that had previously scored early from Bourges two weeks ago from over 28,000 birds. This young cock is the first youngster he has bred from GB13V28610 that is direct from Teofilo our top breeding Marijke Vink cock paired with Schouk a direct daughter of Drum x Doran so therefore a full sister to Johannesburg and Mystique bred by ourselves and raced by Crehan and O’Conner.
