Message from Charlie Lovick - our President

Lisa Neville MP has introduced a bill into Parliament to ban cattle grazing. The MCAV has been expecting this. This government’s actions are regressive. When grazing is being used as a tool for restoring land health around the world, the Victorian government is removing it as a solution. Labor is locking up all public land to the detriment of the land and Victorians.

Please send the Minister emails to to express your concern about the loss of our heritage and culture.

The Mountain Cattlemen’s Association of Victoria (MCAV) represents a hardy group of people whose families and predecessors have grazed their cattle and maintained the Victorian High Country dating back to 1834.

Cattlemen are celebrated as icons of the Australian bush. From Australian settlement to the present, caring for their cattle and custodianship of the land has been a cross generational family undertaking, so their training in the mountains is a lifetime experience.

Join us in our efforts to ensure our culture and traditions carry on into the future by becoming a member of the MCAV.
