Passion, quality, perfection and innovation!

Since 1965.

With Vanrobaeys you choose quality


The Vanrobaeys company is and stays a family-owned company that started producing pigeon feed back in
1965. Meanwhile, it has grown into a strong player which provides many Belgian & international toppers with
the finest pigeon feed for their champions.
Vanrobaeys stands for passion, passion for quality and perfection, everything simply must be right. In that
scope, quality control is of utmost importance. Indeed, it is impossible to market a quality feed if the base
product is not really a high-quality product.
Vanrobaeys tries to offer as broad an assortment of pigeon feed as possible. The different periods throughout the year bring along different nutritional needs. Indeed, when moulting, pigeons have other needs and
virtues than during the flying or breeding seasons.
Vanrobaeys stands for innovation. On balance, a healthy pigeon draws almost everything out of healthy feed
and thats about our starting point to reconsider and adjust our feed to the needs of the present-day pigeon
over and over again and we especially do so for our customers.
You may have the best loft or the best pigeons in the world, without quality pigeon feed in the bowls you
are lost!

Exclusive mixtures

(20kg)

Pigeon racing is constantly advancing as a sport, and as a feed producer we cant


stand still if we are to stay ahead of the competition. To ensure this we took advice
from top pigeon fanciers, listening to their needs for the present day sport. Testing
was precise and intense with quality and results paramount.
The mixture had to fulfil every need of the modern pigeon and more... hence this Exclusive Mixture was formulated.

Nr.38

Breeding Exclusive
For years, pigeon fanciers thought that breeding youngsters was simple. Just by adding a handful of peas, a
breeding mixture would be created, but this addition of endosperms is far too elementary. This is why we replaced these endosperms with other grains that can add a higher quality of endosperms and therefore Breeding Exclusive was created.
The results were amazing... with experience showing that youngsters bred on Breeding Exclusive could be
weaned 3 days earlier than those bred on a regular mixture. Young pigeons are the future and it is obvious that
the good start in life that Breeding Exclusive gives is crucial if the years ahead are to be successful.

Racing Exclusive
Power and fats united in one bag of feed... that can only be our RACING EXCLUSIVE. In cooperation with top
fanciers we went on a quest to find what a pigeon really needs. BREEDING and RACING EXCLUSIVE were created. Such grains as Milo, Tares, Soya Beans and striped Sunflower have been neglected for years but these
could offer so much more. Fanciers were not being given what was needed, with simplicity being the key word.
In recent years there has been a trend for top fanciers to select grains with more care, with pigeons fed morning, noon and evening.
Many different products and potions still prevail on the market, but top fanciers are now well aware that only
with super pigeons and a well balanced pigeon feed diet can you make a difference. To let every fancier profit
from the importance of the feed, we have developed RACING EXCLUSIVE, which is perfect in composition and
unique in results. Now it is up to you ...
Profit from the secrets of the top fanciers and feed your pigeons with RACING EXCLUSIVE.

Moulting Exclusive
Which problems can arise during moulting because of the feed? Methionine deficiency used to be one of
the most common problems! This was mainly due to feeding lots of or sometimes only peas! A deficiency
of amino acids, such as arginine or lysine, or else a zinc deficiency, caused bad colouring of the feathers, or
as we call it in the jargon, depigmentation of the feathers! But, the question arises; do bad pigeon feeds
still exist? No, but some are less good than others and especially feeds that are not really adapted to the
moulting period! Take e.g. a pigeon feed mainly based on maize, peas and wheat. It surely is adapted less
for feeding pigeons during moulting! Let us explain: for pigeons, the moulting period is a pretty stressful
period! You probably cannot see it, but for birds moulting is a radical process that takes up a lot of energy!
So, this leads us to our first point, during moulting, pigeons need high-energy mixtures! What else is important? When having a look at the composition of the feathers, we see that they are composed of over
90% proteins, 1.5% fats and the rest is made out of water! Therefore, administration of sufficient proteins
is an absolute necessity!
Recent research showed a fact that is even more important: omega 3 plays a serious role during the moulting period! So, in a nutshell, a pigeon feed must contain: sufficient energy, be rich in proteins and omega 3!
This brings us to what we call oil-rich seeds! Dari for example has a favourable protein pallet, but linseed is
the absolute no. 1 in a moulting mixture! It contains sufficient omega 3 and arginine and is therefore really
important during moulting! Hemp seed, canary seed or canary seed, mung beans and rapeseed are grains
that are extremely rich in proteins! Rui Exclusief offers a nice pallet of grains and the diversity surely is an
added value for your pigeons during moulting! You will see, pigeons know their needs very well! During this
period, they prefer to eat the smaller grains, such as linseed and the like. Maize and peas will be left aside!

Super mixtures

(20kg)

We were the first to produce mixtures with small Cribbs maize. The pigeons like it
and therefore it is not scattered. These mixtures soon became a huge success both
home and abroad.
This small Cribbs maize is not available in the same quantities as other maize, but
nevertheless at Vanrobaeys we can guarantee good quality throughout the year.

Nr.20

Super Special Breeding


It is often found that pigeons leave the maize
when they have youngsters in the nest. This
is why this mixture containing less maize
was introduced. Furthermore as it has small
maize, as round as peas, the pigeons do not
leave anything. A successful formula!

Nr.8

Super Racing Bordeaux


This mixture is rich in quality Cribbs maize
(40%) to build up the necessary sugar reserves
in your pigeons to ensure that they can easily

Casaert mixtures
Maurice & Gregory Casaert are one of the most prestigious families in the Belgian pigeon sport. Their pigeons
are loved all over the world and with success. Many amateurs had great success after introducing pigeons from
Nchin in their loft. And by great success we mean nothing less than national victories. With an impressive list of
local, provincial and national victories, with no less than 6 pigeons, they belong to the absolute world top.

Maurice, who unfortunately passed away recently, was a great man and role model for the Belgian pigeon racing
sport. But what is even more remarkable is that Maurice passed on this exceptional talent to his 3 sons, of whom
Gregory now continues his lifework in Nchin. For the Casaert family pigeon feed is a very important aspect. Vanrobaeys produces 2 top mixtures that were developed by Maurice in 1990.

Paddy Rice, 25 kg Depurative and 5 kg Mung
Beans. For more than ten years now we have
been mixing this for Mr Casaert. Previously
it was a private mixture but it is now offered
commercially to everyone. This mixture has
been copied by many but never matched.

Platteeuw mixture
Since 2007, Kurt & Raf Platteeuw have been a constant factor at the top of the Belgian pigeon racing sport and
their story is quite impressive. At the beginning of the century, Kurt & Raf Platteeuw were very common players,
always very sportive and enthusiastic. But the last few years, the passion gained the upper hand. In 2007, they
left behind all standard systems and completely changed the plans. A revolutionary new system, it appeared afterwards. In this system, with the Platteeuw family, the feed is an important aspect. So, Kurt committed himself to
composing a mixture with which they could feed their flying squad on a daily basis. It may sound incredible, but
during the racing season, Raf & Kurt only feed their racing pigeons with this mixture. In the beginning, this mixture
was only used by the Platteeuw family, but thanks to the victories, friend and foe got interested.

Diet extra is a high-fat mixture that is easily digested and often given on arrival after

is no acidification in the crop. Pigeons will
readily eat the mixture. It is also recommended with the last meals before basketing
for the high energy to it provides.

Nr.29

Racing without peas


The success of this mixture hides in the fact
that it supplies extra reserves without making
your pigeons fatter. This mixture contains a
lot of fat-rich seeds, such as sunflower seeds,
safflower, black rapeseed, hemp seed, and
less proteins.
When coming home after a flight, it is important to administer a protein-rich mixture.
At that moment, proteins are much-needed
to rebuild the muscles, but once this is done
you switch to the No. 29 mixture.
You will notice that your pigeons are easier
to train and will perform better. This mixture
will easily bring you to the end of the week.
This system is also extremely good for young
pigeons and it is very much loved by racing
players because of the high amount of carbohydrates.

Cribbs maize

Dried naturally by the wind and sun in cages


Since 1965 we have been producing pigeon mixtures. From the outset we have
ensured that the mixtures contained good quality maize, particularly CRIBBS
MAIZE (the word is derived from the French word CRABBE). This type of maize is
dried naturally by the wind and sun in cages for six months and is enriched with
all the qualities for nutritional values, carbohydrates, starches and germinative
power. This is in direct contrast with maize that is mechanically dried by hot air.
Thanks to this advantage we can give assurances that throughout the year we
can produce mixtures with Cribbs maize of the same quality and do this over
and over again. To ensure this we have built up a good relationship with the
French farmers, people who still put their heart and soul into their produce.

Activates the immune system and supports the


respiratory capacity
Respiratory infections are amongst the most common disorders found in pigeons during the racing period.
Most of the time, it concerns an infection of the upper airways (nose, paranasal sinuses, pharynx and larynx)
or an infection of the lower airways (trachea and bronchi). Nowadays, these can be easily distinguished from
one another by an endoscopic exam carried out in veterinary surgeon practices specialized in pigeons. Generally, performances decline as from the 5th race and this decrease can hardly be made up for by the end of the
season. So, prevention is better than cure and it is therefore very important to preserve the natural resistance
of the respiratory system.
BronchoStar is a herbal juice that supports respiration, stimulates the appetite and strengthens the natural
immune system.
Thanks to the addition of several herbs (thyme, anis, eucalyptus, plantain, ) BronchoStar prevents inflammation of the bronchial tubes and lungs, restores the natural mucous layer in the throat and has an anti-bacterial effect.
BronchoStar contains Ginsing that, from within the lungs via the red blood cells, produces extra energy in the
body cells of the pigeon.

Good health begins with healthy intestines


No other organs have such direct impact on the well-being. They provide the vital energy to the whole organism. In short, the system has to absorb hundreds of thousands of substances (food), convert these into
endogenous or usable substances and excrete roughage.
There is even more to it:
The digestive tract holds about 70% of all immune cells of the body. Here, all the bacteria and toxic substances that infiltrate the body must be neutralized. BactoStar stimulates the immune system:

at the end of the courses of antibiotic treatments


after a vaccination
after a period of stress during the racing season
after and during the rearing of young pigeons

BactoStar stimulates the growth of favourable intestinal flora restoring bacteria that produce lactic acid
(e.g. to control the emergence and the spread of E. Colli bacteria). The herb mixture that is added prevents
the emergence of parasites in the intestine. (Such as Coccidiose, Salmonella, Colli,)
BactoStar also contains a yeast culture that provides a better absorption and digestion of the pigeon feed.
The unique composition of BactoStar includes several nutrients, thus guaranteeing a perfect intestinal
health.

Development, protection & strengthening of joints,


tendons and cartilages with pigeons
The cartilage in the joint starts to degrade due to overburdening of young pigeons and the lack of movement
with pigeons that are stuck in winter.
The cartilage serves as cushioning between the individual parts of the skeleton. This function is supported by
the joint fluid that feeds the cartilage and surrounds it as a defensive ring. When arthrosis occurs, the cartilage
degrades, the bones are rubbing against one other causing pain. The irritated bone skin reacts, resulting in an
infection (arthritis) and the deformation of the joint bones. As a result the joint functioning progressively reduces. In an advanced stage, the joint can even ossify causing permanent stiffness.
Arthrosis cannot be cured, but prevention may be the right way towards protection against overburdening of
the wing joints, especially of the shoulder joint, by the fast up and down movements of the wing.
The unique Flexi Star recipe reduces joint infections and rebuilds the quality of the cartilage structure. It also
has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Flexi Star is a dietary supplement and therefore shall be used in time before the start of the burdening during
the races and the start of the training. In order to have the best result, it is recommended to administer 10ml
of Flexi Star after weaning off the young pigeons in combination with 10 gr. of ProteinStar /1 kg of pigeon feed.

Proteins, amino acids for racing pigeons


ProteinStar is a high-grade fast absorbing amino acid, rich in proteins, such as DL Methionine & Lysine. This product
contributes to a fast recuperation during the races, perfect down during moulting and optimal growth during breeding.
Racing Period: Prior to the training flights, starting 3 weeks before training, on a daily basis (10 g/kg pigeon feed) and then
as from the day of return until the pigeons have thickened again. The muscles will regenerate quicker thus avoiding a clear
performance decline as from the 5th to 7th races.
Rearing Period: Optimal care of the parents/crop milk for rearing the young pigeons, as only optimally fed young pigeons
guarantee top performances in the following racing season. Start during brooding until after weaning of the young pigeons. Dose: 3x/week 10 g/kg pigeon feed mix with 10ml BronchoStar.
Young Pigeons: Young pigeons are weaned off at the age of 21 days. In this transitional period of not fully developed physique, start of flight activities and the First flights, it is particularly important to reinforce the muscles and to compose the
food as optimally as possible. In combination with Flexi Star, pigeon fanciers obtain excellent quality feed. Dose: 3 x/week
bind 10 g ProteinStar with 10 ml FlexiStar and the usual pigeon feed.

500gr

Moulting Period: Only optimally fed feathers guarantee a strong plumage and strong wings. In order to obtain such feathers, proteins, amino
acids, omega 3, zinc and sulphur are extremely important . ProteinStar
holds all these ingredients. In combination with a perfectly balanced pigeon feed, this is the basis for later success. The biggest mistake one can
make is to give lower-grade food during the moulting period under the
pretext that the pigeons do not have to perform anyway now. But that
feather formation indeed is very important for later top performances.
Dose: 3 x/per week moisten 5g/kg of pigeon feed with BronchoStar.

Drinking water hygiene


The quality of the drinking water is underestimated by many, but it is a very important link in the later success
story. Ph Blue Star prevents the presence and emergence of germs in the drinking water and reduces the Ph
value to 4.5-5.0 by acidification, thus killing Trichomonas, if any. As a result of the acidification the pigeon also
produces more saliva, thus ensuring an even better digestion.
The alga-like slime that is usually seen in drinkers now belongs to the past. Dirt that falls in the drinkers, drifting-down feather dust and germ parts no longer have any nutrient medium.

Drinking behavior of the pigeon


Pigeons spit in the water before drinking. At that moment, trichomonas and germs, living in the crop, fall from
the crop and the bill in the drinking water. The next pigeon also does so. As the day progresses, the germ concentration in the water of the dovecot increases and the
last pigeons do not have pure drinking water anymore.
The acidification prevents germ growth and kills the
trichomonas that fall in the drinking water.
