Racing pigeons used to be the mail carriers of the past. They played a role in many wars and marriages. Precisely because they could find and trace their way perfectly, they were used extensively until other means of communication became faster and easier.
Today, pigeon racing is a hobby. But make no mistake, it is all handled very professionally.
The days of grandfathers rattling feeders trying to bring in their falling pigeons are long gone. Electronics have entered the field of 'observation' and everything is now much faster and more accurate. No wonder that the best means of transporting the pigeons to the release points are also provided. Lathouwers has a fleet of perfectly equipped trucks that transport the pigeons quickly and in the best conditions.
All trucks are invariably accompanied by experts and enthusiasts of the sport. This guarantees the best care on the way to : Argenton, Quievrain, Bourges, Noyon and so many more destinations.
