Coffin, Knight speak to BDN about benefits of mules

University of Maine Cooperative Extension professor Donna Coffin and UMaine Extension state livestock specialist Colt Knight spoke with the Bangor Daily News about the benefits of having mules. “They seem to be hardier than horses, (which is) that hybrid vigor kicking in,” Coffin said. “They are very effective guard animals, as long as the mule is trained to be a guard animal,” Knight said.
