Cat­tle drive is on this week­end

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE - Ge­orge Smith

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.
