From Sullivan Supply - SSU at Grand Island

On behalf of Stock Show University we want to thank everyone for attending our first ever hands on clinic at the Maine and Chianina Junior Nationals in Grand Island!  We not only had a great group of board members and professors to work with but the kids were awesome! We also want to extend a big thanks to those who helped us by donating cattle or equipment for us to use to make this all possible! Once again – thanks Maine and Chi exhibitors for a great clinic and we wish you the best of luck during the rest of your week in Grand Island!

The Showtimes and Show Circuit Ad

Look for this ad (with a few minor changes)
 in the August issue of
The Showtimes and Show Circuit magazines.

This ad features photos of the many time Champion Chianina heifer sold in last year's Showman's Choice Sale purchased by Kendall Bremer and shown by Ben Weis, The 5th Overall Steer at the Badger Kickoff Classic purchased in last year's Showman's Choice Sale by Tracy Goretska and shown by Macey Goretska and the Many time Champion steer in Kansas purchased in last year's Showman's Choice Sale by Glen Toews and shown by Summer Rusk.

Calf pictures are of the Monopoly X Alias steer that has had a lot of friends already and will sure be a feature in this year's sale along with the Jesse James X Alias steer that has been made famous on Matt Lautner's blog.  The other calf photo is of a very exciting King Of The Mountain X Ali heifer.
