Agriculture museum gets new bull, named Hercules, after death of Goody

More than four months after the death of their beloved bull Goody, the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum has welcomed a new bull into the fold.

Former bull Goody, a museum favourite among visitors, died on Canada Day

More than four months after the death of their beloved bull Goody, the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum has welcomed a new bull into the fold.

Hercules, a Hereford bull, weighs about 2,200 pounds and was born in 2011. He comes to the museum from a farm in Kingston, Ont.

The museum looked at several bulls before deciding on Hercules, whose temperament is calm enough for the museum's needs.

(As a bonus, he also has some very pretty curls on his head.)

Now, the search begins for a mate for Hercules.

Anyone interested in meeting Hercules up close can do so at the museum starting on Wednesday.
