Derby Arona Entries

The main reason we operate a breeding loft here at Rasbull Lofts is to specialise in One Loft racing. We use our test loft programme to gauge the breeding potential of birds at our lofts with the intention of entering One Loft races. We have used the feedback from last year, the One Loft races we entered last winter and of course this years performances to select our pairings that hopefully will produce a quality team to send to over to Tenerife and the Derby Arona One Loft Race.

I must admit the team we have sent this year in my mind is very strong. We have had some excellent results and this information has been used to produce this years candidates to go to the Derby Arona.
