Coffee at.... Aldert Hiemstra nature biologist - De Westereen (NL)
A chilly Wednesday afternoon at the end of the moulting period. An excellent reason to pack a number of pigeons, take manure samples with you and go for the annual check-up to Aldert Hiemstra in the north-east of the province. Coffee on the table, microscope at the ready and as Frisians talk among themselves, it quickly turns to cows, horses, bio filters and of course our winged wonders.
Many already knew their way to the Westeren. Especially in our own Friese Wouden, top lofts are guided by Aldert, and top performances were not forthcoming. Bearing in mind that that region has a huge population density when it comes to pigeon fanciers, with many nationally known top lofts.
Through decades of research, testing and comparing outcomes, a number of products have been developed to improve and support health with the power of nature. Natural scavengers have been discovered in the plant world, which can be used to combat unwanted disease carriers.
While antibiotics in many cases hunt down all bacteria, these products specifically activate good bacteria to get to work, or antioxidants attack the cell nuclei of disease carriers and make them inactive.
Backs Balance the name leaves little to the imagination. It is a fermented biological product that supports intestinal flora, physical condition, resistance and the immune system. If too many of the bacteria in the body are inactive, the metabolism becomes out of balance and proteins are no longer digested properly. This creates a weaker resistance and gives room to disease carriers. Balance activates the good bacteria, toxins and fungi are removed, bringing the metabolism back into balance.
Backs TKK Nature uses an antioxidant from the plant world, which settles in the cell nucleus of single-cell disease carriers and makes it inactive. These disease carriers cause breathing problems and can disrupt intestinal function. After treatment with TKK Nature, the emission of toxins and fungi is stopped and the natural balance is restored.
Backs Air is sprayed above the pigeons while they are being fed. This way, the clearing bacteria easily end up in the air pockets, where they can do their good work. The airways are cleared of disease carriers, fungi and toxins, so that breathing can become optimal again. Healthy airways provide better orientation so that performance can improve again.
It was another educational afternoon, which provided plenty of thinking for the coming winter months. Thanks Aldert for the time and the coffee and on to next season.
