WET WILLPOWER: Not to be put off by the wet conditions at the annual Mountain Cattlemen’s Association of Victoria Get Together at Mitta Mitta on the weekend were future cattlemen and women (from left) Jaxon McCormack, Bryce, Jake and Tayla McMillan and Cobie McCormack.

SAYING it was muddy might have been an understatement, but no one minded at the annual Mountain Cattlemen’s Association (MCAV) Get Together.

The MCAV cup final race event was also cancelled due to track conditions, but committee member Brett Lancaster took home the trophy after accumulating the most points during the obstacle course and cattle work phases.
