There really is no way to stop your tree from producing fruit (other than replacing it with a male, or fruitless mulberry). You could prune it back after it has flowered but then it would take all summer to replace the lost branches and leaves. I think I'd just put up with the mess rather than try to remove all the flowers before they become fruit. Wish I had a solution for you!
