2007 Houston Mull Scholarship Cattle Drive

About 250 riders gathered at the Robin and Brenda Mull farm on Saturday, Nov. 3, for the fourth annual Houston Mull FFA Memorial Scholarship Cattle Drive. Trent Loos, national farm activist and radio personality, led the riders and about 100 Longhorns, on a 12-mile trail that ended up going right through the heart of Malta Bend, on his "pink" mule.

Mull Memorial FFA Scholarship Cattle Drive. The flag was flown over the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq and donated by Captain Daniel Swanson. The flag will be auctioned off on Saturday, Nov. 3, after the steak fry, to be held at the Mull farm at approximately 5 p.m. (Marcia Gorrell/Democrat-News)
