Good cattle make the difference

THE Powlett River Downs Campdraft is a ‘must attend’ on a serious campdrafter’s calendar.
President of the Campdraft Association Gippsland and judge Allan Mitchell said it is one of 13 drafts on the GCA calendar and is renowned for the beautiful venue and the quality of the cattle.
Campdrafting always supports worthy causes in raising money for local charities.
Last year funds raised were used to purchase a palliative care bed for the Bass Coast.
Kieran Gilliland from Won Wron said the cattle at Powlett Creek Downs are always fantastic and this year was no different.
He said, “The cattle are trackable and honest and it is only rider error if you can’t get around the course with cattle like these.
“It also makes such a difference to the way things flow when you have quality cattle,” he said.
Cattle were supplied by the Jelbart family 600, the McLeod sisters 120, Mark Garnham 100 and from the owner of Powlett River Downs, Allan Mitchell.
Catering was provided by the Dalyston Football Netball Club.

Trackable and honest: there was plenty of dust raised in the arena at the Powlett River Downs Campdraft on Saturday given the continuing dry conditions. Thankfully the cooling breeze was also blowing the dust away to the north.
