A foggy morning didn't hamper the enthusiasm of over 200 horse and wagon riders during the fifth annual Houston E. Mull FFA Memorial Cattle Drive Saturday, Nov. 1. "I think that everybody thought it went great, except it got off to a foggy start," said Robin Mull. "Everyone we talked to had an excellent time."
The approximately 11-mile ride took riders from the farm of Robin, Brenda and Bradley Mull near Malta Bend and through the town of Shackleford.
After a luncheon stop the riders drove 40 longhorn cattle back to the Mull farm. On Saturday evening, over 400 people attended a steak dinner at the farm, prepared by the Saline County Cattleman. An auction was also held.
"The auction went as well as it ever has," said Mull. Read More
Congratulations to Houston Mull’s family and Trent Loos for hosting another successful cattle drive in memory of Houston. While I never met Houston everyone talks of his passion for agriculture. Even though he is no longer with us, he continues to promote agriculture through the scholarships that bear his name.
