Todd Caldwell Fitting Tip

Todd Caldwell is very well-known in the show cattle industry and is a member of the Sullivan Show Supply Show Cattle U team. Todd would like to share this cattle fitting tip with our blog viewers.
Sullivan's Prime Time AdhesiveSullivan's Tail Adhesive
"When fitting a leg there is one product line that stands out. Sullivan" Prime Time and Tail adhesive. They dry completely and leave the hair crisp so it clips off with ease. Sullivan adhesives perform in all types of weather - winter, spring, summer or fall. These products will not wilt or fall down in the humidity".
Sullivan's Ultra White Touch-UpSullivan's Black Finisher
"We then proceed with the Sullivan's Ultra White Touch-up as a leg builder and use Black Finisher as our final cover-up. Their level of performance and hair-like appearance is unmatched. And Sullivan Touch-Ups will not melt your adhesive."

Thank you to Todd Caldwell of Caldwell Show Cattle and Sullivan Supply for these product tips!
