At Formula 1 lofts we have two main aims which are very simple these are to win each and every race we enter, but equally as important to us is to be able to breed first class pigeons which win or breed winners for others. Nothing pleases us more than getting the numerous calls/emails we get reporting winners each year.
Formula 1 lofts is jointly owned by John Gladwin & John Cowlin we both race separately and our flying names are Gladwin & Jarvis and John Cowlin. We have both been around pigeons all our life in fact the Jarvis part of my flying name comes from my wife’s Theresa maiden name herself is a daughter of a pigeon fancier.
After much consideration we decided to set up formula 1 lofts in 2002 since then we have spent many hours looking for the best pigeons we could find, always with 3 main things in mind when we look at a family of pigeons, firstly they must be from someone who wins in good competition for a number of years. Secondly and probably most important is that they are winning for others in many areas. And thirdly we feel we can trust the person we are buying from. To make sure these 3 main criteria’s are meet we spend a lot of time doing our homework on the sellers before we buy.
During the last 10 years Formula 1 Lofts have bred 100’s of winners for ourselves and others including winners in America and Asia, these include winners at the highest levels of competition.
