RAYMUND HERMES (HAMM / SIEG, GERMANY)

Total auction of all pigeons - PART 13 - Miss Barcelona

PASSION FOR PIGEON RACING | For over 150 years Hermes was one of the leading producers of meat products in Germany. But the true passion of Raymund Hermes was racing pigeons. He has carefully built 2 strains of pigeons, one for the middle distance races and one for the long distance races.

A STRONG LONG DISTANCE STRAIN

The L.D. team is built on the famous ‘Barcelona‘05’, winner of 1. Nat. Barcelona in 2005. In his pedigree we find pigeons from the basic couple of Marcel Braakhuis, who is known for his ‘Zwarte Moordenaars’. ‘Barcelona 05’ is grandfather to 1. Nat. Narbonne; ‘Der Jubilar’. He was given this name after taking the 25th National victory for Raymund Hermes. ‘Der Jubilar’ has an impressive origin and proved to be just as talented as his forefathers. This pigeon illustrates the breeding strategy of Hermes as well: only breed pigeons from the very best bloodlines only. Despite the difficult geographic location of the lofts in Germany (the lofts are located near the Westerwald and the Low Mountain Range), the achievements on the international long-distance races are outstanding. Many National winners and Olympiad birds were born at these lofts.

A LONG LIST OF NAT. VICTORIES

Since 1968, for nearly 3 decades, the Hermes performances are on a very high standard. Winning the 1. Nat. Championship 1996, with more than 80.000 competitors, was the highest climax in the 90’s. On top of this the Hermes pigeons regularly attended the Olympiad exhibitions. Besides, the National victories demonstrate the performance of this racing team.

NEVER SELL YOUR WINNERS

Although many fanciers from around the world were interested in buying the best Hermes pigeons, Raymund never sold a high-performance bird, international winner or Ace pigeon. ‘Nothing will be sold! Breeding from these pigeons will make you successful’, that was the philosophy of Hermes.
