Get Together Omeo District 12-14 January 2018



Buchan Wrap

The 2017 Get Together was held at ‘Buchan River Run', thank you to Dale Rogers for allowing us the use of his beautiful property.

The Mountain Cattlemen’s Association was thrilled and humbled at the huge public attendance and strong support given to the Cattlemen’s cause at the 2017 Buchan Get Together. Attendance reached record numbers and everyone had a great time. A special thanks to the Buchan community for their support. Looking forward to coming back soon!
Our small team led by Chris Cooper, did a great job behind the scenes and together with our administration team we once again put on a great show. See you next year in Omeo. See photos of Buchan here
