Frank and Hans Beverdam

Introduction
The Combination Beverdam consists of 2 team members Hans (father) and Frank (son). Hans is specialized in breeding with pigeons and Frank focuses on the racing with pigeons. From 1998, father and son started to keep pigeons and within the same year they participated on the races. Frank was in the year 1998, 10 years old and initially started the hobby. One year later, the team made their first purchases by: Jos van Limpt – De Klak, Albert v.d. Flaes and Karel Meulemans. Later on, they invested in several pigeons from Louis van Loon and Lea & Maria Broeckx. The last four fanciers are all from Belgium. It was a matter of time, when they achieved their first results. In 1999, Hans and Frank won the young bird championship (nominated) in region Hoogeveen. In 2000, they won again the young bird championship (un-nominated) and they also won the title ‘emperor-general’ in their union with approximately 24 members. From this moment on, Hans and Frank were always among the lofts, which played for the prices.

• 2nd National ace pigeon short distance WHZB with THE CHIEF
• 4th National ace pigeon middle distance WHZB with DE BIKKEL

• 1st Sprint championship un-nominated Rayon 9, Division North East Netherlands
• 1st Middle distance championship Rayon 9, Division North East Netherlands
• 1e General championship Rayon 9, Division North East Netherlands.

Breeding loft Nieuwlande
On the 3rd of September of 2012 Hans founded a company especially for pigeons and named it KWEEKCENTRUM NIEUWLANDE. He wanted to focus this attention completely on the breeding of quality pigeons, that will also bring other fanciers luck. The breeding pairs of Hans are a select group of pigeons, because youngsters are first tested by two friend-fanciers. Currently, Hans has created a pigeon family (Breeding line of THE CHIEF), which is very successful on their own loft, but also by other fanciers.

Next to this, CHANTAL is one of the finest breeding hens on the loft. She is a daughter of the LOVE
PAIR of Harm Vredeveld. Last but not least, Hans has a direct daughter of the Kannibaal from Dirk van Dijck.

Hans believes in quality and has created his own selection method for pigeons. The musculature, front arm and wings, eyes, plumage, vitality and eventually the results are important subjects to determine the quality of the race pigeon. According to Hans vision is a good pigeon the most important factor for good racing results. A good pigeon has sufficient natural health and does not need many medication. No medication at all is no option during racing season. However, the breeders have been provided rarely with medication and have sufficient natural heath which they through to their youngsters. Next to the pigeon is the loft important to get pigeons in condition (shape) and to the maintain their condition. Frank feeds the racing pigeons twice a day. The pigeons are provided 30 minutes with plenty of food so they can choose whatever the like. During the training of racing pigeons the behaviour is watched closely. Pigeons which are in shape or off-shape are recognised by Frank and kept in mind for the coming race.
