Pigeon pedigree series, line B

Kadet line Karel Meulemans

As been indicated by Line A, Leo has build up this pedigree around a few nestlings which he bought by Marien Pieterse living in Wemeldinge, from the son of the worldfamous super pigeon, ‘The Kadet’, from Karel Meulemans living in the Belgian Arendonk. The most famous Crack from this pedigrees would be the Hattrick, which became the fastest of the whole Kuststrook 3 times, every time against 21000-25000 pigeons. The ones who could get som of this Kadet-line pigeons, was almost always succesfull. Peter van Mulm from Delft made from one son of the ‘Kadet 340’ his stock cock in the 80s and his National Champion pigeon ‘Superstar 212-98’ a cross with the ‘Keizer’ van de A line pedigree of Leo, a striking example. Also Teun & Paul Groeneveld, J. Krowinkel, Aad Molenaar, Jan Bronswijk, Dirk Brem, K.W.Menheer, Pim de Koning, Joop Groenen, W. de Winter, Dirk Buitelaar etc. bought 1 child from the ‘Kadet 340’ line by Leo and breeded a legion of winners and champion pigeons. What became rapidly clear was that the succesfull linebreed with Merckx Janssen, this was inadvisable for the Kadet family. Family linebreed of this line brought mostly fat and not vital descendants, while in crossing they were very dominant inheritors and gave massively good racing pigeons. You will find this ‘Kadet’ family massively in the pedigree of the great pigeons, but only limited in pedigree %. Still they have contributed to the birth of the champions of Leo and all above and their successes.
