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.
