The Home of the Commercial and Fancy Rabbit Breeds in Gauteng

                                           

                                          

                                            Gauteng Rabbit Breeders Association

 

We encourage the breeding, exhibiting and improving of all recognised rabbit breeds. The Club caters for all - the specialist breeder, the pet bunny owner and the commercial rabbit producer. Regular Table Shows are held throughout the year. A Table Show is a meeting, to which members and visitors bring along their rabbits for judging and comment. Two Championship shows will be held in the year hosted by the GBRA. We do also encourage our members to take part in the rabbit shows held by the Natal Rabbit Club, namely The Royal Agricultural Show in May/June and also the separate Natal Rabbit Club Championship Show in Oct/Nov. All the rabbit shows are judged by a qualified All Breeds Judge, and are judged to the British Rabbit Council standards, with a few exceptions which are judged to standards supplied by their countries of origin.

There are 28 rabbit varieties being exhibited in South-Africa, divided into three categories: Fancy Breeds, Normal Fur Breeds and Rex coated varieties. Breeders work with a very small gene pool here as there is a ban on the importation of rabbits into the country.
