Good cattle make the difference
By Stuart Biggins
THE Powlett River Downs Camp-
draft is a ‘must attend’ on a seri-
ous campdrafter’s calendar.
President of the Campdraft Associa-
tion Gippsland and judge Allan Mitchell
said it is one 13 drafts on the GCA cal-
endar and is renowned for the beautiful
venue and the quality of the cattle.
Campdrafting always supports worthy
causes in raising money for local chari-
Last year funds raised purchased a
palliative care bed for the Bass Coast.
Kieran Gilliland from Won Wron said
the cattle at Powlett Creek Downs are al-
ways fantastic and this year was no dif-
He said, “The cattle are trackable and
honest and it is only rider error if you
can’t get around the course with cattle
“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 Pow-
lett River Downs, Allan Mitchell.
