Breed History & Guidelines
B bar C Angoras: Breed history and guidelines
By the early 20th Century, a protocol for production testing had been established for Angora rabbits in Germany. Wool derived from Angoras was officially evaluated for quality of texture as well as its performance during and after processing. The International Association of German Angora Rabbit Breeders (IAGARB) now lists its registration criteria on a scale of 100 points. However, just as the original German standard mandated, IAGARB will never award a full 100 points, and has no champion or grand champion designations. This is to promote constant innovation and improvement in the breed.
IAGARB's Seven Positions of the German Standard:
2. Body Type
3. Wool Density & Length
4. Wool Uniformity
5. Wool Texture
