Cattle drive is on this weekend
THE annual cattle drive for the Monto and District Show Society will run this weekend.
This is definitely one for those with a love of the bush and horses in particular.
Now in its eighth year, the event involves droving 300 head of cattle through the Monal area.
This is a total distance of 20km up Monal Road then down Cahlane’s Rd.
There will be camping tomorrow night and on Saturday.
Organiser Barry Mundt said drovers would have to supply their own swag, but food was included.
“This is real droving stuff, everyone looks after each other but you need to rough it a little bit,” Mr Mundt said.
“We want to see the next generation represented so please bring your children.”
Children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
