Bourgoin Family Lofts
In 2006 we brought in the Ludo Claessens and the John Stoll's in the Fall of 2007 we worked out a deal on the Import pair Thunder & Maria. The first Ludo Claessens to come to our lofts and the foundation of our family today was Grizzly, Tom Cat, & Miss Katoog these three birds are World Class producing many 1st place winners, Ace Pigeons, Champion Birds, AU Registered Champions, and One Loft winners all over the USA generation after generation.
Within a few years we bred De Favorite Ace the best Young Bird in Minnesota. We have created a family of Ace pigeons that produce Ace pigeons for us and our friends and customers. Now breeding from 6- 1st Aces Young/Middle Distance, multiple 2nd, and 3rd Aces.

Our program is pretty simply!

We don't use medication unless it is a last resort for our breeders and racers
If you have to continue to give the birds meds to keep them healthy you are the problem!!
