Joop Koch

Joop Koch lives in Eindhoven and have had pigeons for more than 35 years. He retired as 58-year-old so now he is able to practice his hobby full time. Joop specializes in flights between 100 and 750 km; he loves his pigeons too much to send the pigeons longer where the chance to loose pigeons are higher.

He races with 40 cocks on classic widowhood (where the hens stay home) – and 12 hens on the same system. Around 80 youngsters are bred and they are played on the popular sliding door system, where the young cocks and hens are separated in the week and brought together before basketing.

The results show a REALLY allround loft – in example Joop Koch was again in 2018 1st General Champion in CC Eindhoven with 350-400 members for the 30th time in 32 years!!!!
