Intake newsflash 2023-11-30

    The intake to Victoria Falls is closing soon. We have had unprecedented challenges for us because of serious outbreaks of Avian Influenza in the neighbouring country South Africa. Extra precautions have been implemented by our state vets to safeguard the poultry industry in Zimbabwe.


    Our intake numbers are less than hoped for this year but there is still a chance to enter from some regions. The last pigeons must be received in Zimbabwe by 31st December 2023. This means that many of these birds should be collected now for pre-quarantine checking, vaccination and treatment.


    Please remember that only pigeons bred in 2023 can be accepted. Birds with 2022 bands and older won’t be accepted. There are pigeons bred from July 2023 in the Middle East that have 2024 bands. We will accept these pigeons having been bred in 2023 provided we receive them before 31 December 2023. Note that if any 2024 banded birds are received in 2023, they can only participate in the 2024 races and not thereafter.


    Best regards
