History
Famous expert’s introduction

 Premier Pigeon Stud started in 2002, since those very beginnings our passion and determination to create a world class stud has kept us driving forward.

What may appear to be a business, is in fact a dedicated team of individuals that work so close together they are more like a family, where the birds are their children.
 
The main enthusiast behind the Premier family is Graham Sparkes, who's dedication and professionalism leaves nothing to chance. He has been joined by Racing Director Brian Bolton and then by Marketing and Sales Director Derek Nicholls both internationally renowned in the pigeon sport.
The Premier family is always on the look out for the very best pigeon stock to join their world class stud, as well as new fanciers to buy their offspring and create more winners and more members of our family who would like to take advantage of the unique personal service we offer our customers, or should I say family members.

About Us & Our Racing Ambitions
We at Premier Stud take pride in our World Famous stock and couple them to provide us and our customers with young birds that we can watch grow and thrive and hopefully reach their potential to become champions. We believe every bird we produce has the potential to become a Champion, or we would not breed it!
As of 2010 our only ambition is to win at the classic middle distance races, those being from distances of above 200 miles but below 450 miles. For this reason all our 'out and out sprinter pigeons' such as the Roland Janssens, even though they are very good birds, have been sold on. For the same reason our specialist long distance birds such as our Jim Biss birds were sold on. Does this mean our birds can't win below or above these distances? Of course not, indeed all of our present day nine family groupings have won from as short as 50 miles and from as long as 500 miles plus! But their best races are from the classic middle distance as this is where the best races are from, in particular in the hotbed of the Antwerp Union, where our main ambitions lie.
We closed down our mega-successful, professional racing loft at the Stud in 2007 amid complaints from the competition that as we had great big lofts, full time staff and super facilities, it was somehow unfair! And while considering this we came to accept that perhaps we were not competing on a level playing field with the rest of the competition. To address this, and in the spirit of fair and even competition, in 2009 Graham Sparkes, in partnership with Les Bennett, built a 20 foot loft in the small back garden of Les's modest semi-detached house. From the Stud we placed just 50 babies to race, these being just grandchildren of our best birds from our various families.
As well as this we have set up a racing loft in Antwerp Belgium, by continental standards very average in scale, in the ordinary back garden of an ordinary semi-detached house in an ordinary suburb of Antwerp. We have flown very lightly in 2009 just to establish our team of 50 pairs of old birds to race in 2010. We have bred 150 youngsters at the Stud to go and join the the old birds in February 2010, when we hope to be able to compete with and win against some of the elite of the Belgian pigeon sport! We will keep you informed
Families
Our stock birds have been researched and hand picked direct from the lofts of some of the world's top pigeon fanciers.
We have had the pleasure of spending time with each individual fancier to get to know them and as time has passed, we have become friends. We aim to provide the best possible stock and racing teams together with a first class personal service.
You can view a selection of our super stock birds by clicking on the various family buttons below. All actually belong to Premier Stud and are breeding here right now with direct stock available from them all.

Once our team is established in Belgium, you can expect much bigger and better things.

Les and Graham at the partnership's hobby racing loft which has brought so much instant success in 2009 their first year. In March 2009 Les Bennett was an absolute novice. By the end of August, in partnership with Graham flying to this very modest back yard loft, he had won the mighty Yorkshire Middle Route Combine three weeks on the spin!

 
Graham holds the partnership's first combine winner a Premier Stud bred Van Dyke Kannibaal pigeon.
 
Janssen Van Loon
Without doubt the most popular all round pigeon on the Continent today is the Janssen Van Loon! this base can be found in the super up to date winners of such people as Gerrard Koopman in Holland and such legends of the past as the great Planet Bros. in the UK these birds have won around the world in the past and continue to do so in the present, and will no doubt continue to do so in the future.
