Stock Show University Grad Program
At Stock Show U our motto is we stay until the last question is asked. Stock Show University is COMPLIMENTARY. All ages and skill levels are welcome from beginner to amateur. We host clinics at shows and homes across the United States, including beef expos, major shows, and junior nationals; all FREE of charge! Clinics range from convenient two-hour clinics to comprehensive, in-depth two-day clinics called GRAD Programs. The best and most talented ‘professors’ in the business will focus on all areas needed to achieve the Championship look – show day fitting/clipping, animal selection, showmanship, feeding, daily hair and animal care to name a few.
Stock Show University was started by John Sullivan nearly three years ago. Stock Show University provides services and educational programs that cater specifically to youth helping them develop skill to compete with their show cattle projects. We are a program designed to encourage and reward success with individual achievements and goals.
GRAD Programs are perhaps our strongest commitment to our youth. These are TWO-DAY CLINICS where a successful partnership will be developed between a student and a professor. This program is a great confidence builder and allows the students to gain hands-on and actively seek answers to any question they may have.
Even though these two-day camps can be large in numbers, a meaningful, one-to-one relationship will be built between a student and professor. Participants will be placed in groups of 8 to 12 students to one professor and divided by the individuals each level of experience. Here is where the students will learn hands-on skills in show day fitting, daily hair care, showmanship and clipping. Stock Show U professors are the best in the business. The impact from these skilled professors on each student will be contagious.
Stock Show University is a not-for-profit company that the Sullivan family has committed over $200,000 to yearly; their pledge to supporting the next generation of America’s youth.
Sullivan Supply represents over 24 years of sincere dedication and commitment to the livestock industry. We believe a successful partnerships between education and commitment are fundamental in supporting America’s Youth.
“Before the clinic, when it came to clipping I didn’t know where to start. Since I attended the Stock Show U clinic, I can now visualize where the lines need to be in a calf, so I know what areas I need to clip tighter and what areas need to have more hair. I liked the one-on-one time that we had with the professors. They didn’t overwhelm you, instead, they pushed me and motivated me to learn how to be competitive in the show ring. It really boosted my confidence.” – Brandon Jackson
“Stock Show University taught me different clipping and fitting styles that are being used today that I did not know about. I considered myself to be an alright clipper and fitter before I went to a clinic, but coming out of the clinic I learned more than I ever thought I would, and I would say that the clinic helped me a lot.” – Trevor Moore
