R.A Bakker and Son - Veenendaal, Holland, This father and son
team, Dolf and Ruud Bakker have fortified their loft with the, “best of
the best”, by selecting from the elite bloodlines of the Gerard Koopman
pigeons. Top results and superb quality are the results. And, when Koopman
himself wants to co-breed with the pigeons of his own strain of the
Bakkers, that says it all. Pigeons from the line of the famous “Panamera”,
“Vitalis”, “Jerson”, “Arabella”, “Lady Promise”, and “Golden Dirk”, will
provide top shelf breeders to select from in this sale.
M&C Hansen - Martin & Christian Hansen, Noerresundby, Denmark.
The breeding loft of M&C Hansen is based on the fantastic pigeons from
Gaston Van De Wouwer - Dirk Van Dyck - Stefaan Lambrechts - Jos De Klak -
Louis Van Loon! These pigeons have now for 7 seasons made a huge
difference on the loft of M&C Hansen and their friend and partner Henrik
Meldgaard. In combination with other new strains the two lofts have
achieved in average about 25 x 1st prizes each year and won many
championships in their sections.

racing and fancy pigeons into North America, a Supply Agent for PIPA and
master planner for McLaughlin Lofts breeding and racing success.

Frank has won every possible Concourse and National prize, and his pigeons are winning races in numerous countries. McLaughlin Lofts pigeons continue to dominate major futurities and National awards each year, in all climates around the globe.
Frank’s long-standing success is due to his ability to track down the premier pigeons on the world stage. Since the late 1980’s, Frank has had numerous opportunities to visit the top Belgians and many other famous fanciers. McLaughlin Lofts has not only imported birds from these lofts, but also has become close with the Masters of the sport.
