This year’s Autumn Show will be organised in Salo, SW Finland, just some 45 kms from Turku, on Saturday 18th November 2017. Finnish Rabbit and Rodent Breeders’ Federation calls all the member associations to the show to present their animals. As far now, Rabbit Breeders’ Association will bring both the Nordic and European Rabbit Standard to the show and practice for the big European Show next year in Denmark.

European Association of Poultry, Pigeon, Cage Bird, Rabbit and Cavy Breeder had its annual convention in Eger, Hungary. Finnish Rabbit Breeders were represented in the meeting by the Finnish Rabbit and Rodent Breeders’ Federation, which has been a member to the European Association since last year.
On the agenda of this three-day-assembly was, among other things, discussion about rabbit-related matters and the huge Europe-show next year in Herning, Denmark. You can find the minutes of the meeting on the web by following the link.
Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has listed our Federation among the organisations who are asked to make statements on animal related legislation. This is, on the other hand, an honor but it is also a seriously taken possibility to influence on decision making. All the bills on circulation of a proposal for comment can be found on the ministry web pages (mainly in Finnish).
Finnish Rabbit and Rodent Breeders’ Federation was accepted in the general meeting of the European Association of Poultry, Pigeon, Cage Bird, Rabbit and Cavy Breeders as a full member to represent Finnish rabbits in Europe. Association EE is publishing the European Standard for Rabbits and is The Forum for European level co-operation. In Vienna, our Federation was represented by the President.
