Thrills and spills at Nindigully’s campdraft
CAMPDRAFT: Hundreds of revellers turned out for two action-packed days of campdrafting at Nindigully at the weekend.
Nindigully Campdraft president Dugald McIntosh said the event was a resounding success.
“Nominations were up around the same mark where they normally are, which was good to see,” McIntosh said.
He said 1050 cattle were donated by father and son Peter and Ben Hill for the 750 runs at the weekend.
“Big shout out to the sponsors that helped make the weekend possible,” he said.
“Without sponsors it’s a tough grind.
“With the drought, we’re all going through tough times so we appreciate them getting cattle together to run a draft. And the way the competitors handled the cattle was great, too, that’s something that’s always really good to see.” RESULTS: Eddie Albeck Memorial Open Draft: Bill Carey. Junior Draft: Mitchell Southern. Rabobank Restricted Open Draft: Peter Cookson. Juvenile Draft: Jack Southern. WFI Novice Draft: Kevin Southern. Landmark Maiden Draft: Shane Rollins. Queensland Cotton Ladies Draft: Coralie Daly.
