You may remember Mulberry from the post on 8/17/2015 https://mrssusanschmidlin.wordpress.com/2015/08/17/second-fair/ where Mulberry and his Mother Sitka won Supreme at the Clark County Fair.
Even at that young age, there was quite a bit of interest in Mulberry with the potential to be a great herd sire. He was a stout, solidly built bull with an easy gait and mild demeanor.
Mulberry will be a good choice for sire in herds that need a an animal that will work well with young heifers and older cows. He is referred to a a heifer bull because his expected progeny will have low birth weights with vigorous growth from birth.
Since he was shown at a couple of fairs, he is comfortable with people. He walks easily with a halter and does not get spooked by noises or movement around him.
He is a calm animal when moving between pens, barns and trailers and we use him to keep the other bulls from getting worked up when we are shuffling groups around.
