Welcome to the Michigan State Rabbit Breeders Association

Incorporated 1941

Michigan State Rabbit Breeders

Elevate, stimulate, develop, and encourage the rabbit industry.


MSRBA was organized in the early 1900’s and became incorporated on September 27, 1941. Michigan has hosted 3 ARBA National Conventions and numerous National Specialty Shows.

We are a dedicated group of individuals that share a passion for showing and raising high-quality rabbits. We host two shows a year: our State Convention in the spring, and a show in the fall. Both shows are usually held at the Michigan State University Pavilion in East Lansing, Michigan

We publish a quarterly newsletter, Michigan Rabbit News, to educate and inform our membership.
