Product Differences & Other Information
What is the difference between Sullivan’s Black Finisher and Sullivan’s Jet Black Touch-Up?
Black Finisher delivers a shinier appearance that most people use for your animal’s coat. Jet Black Touch-Up appears to be duller and is commonly used on hooves.
What color of touch-up should I use for my Herefords? For my Shorthorns?
Sullivan’s Crimson Red Touch-Up is usually used on Shorthorns or very dark red animals. Sullivan’s Brown and Auburn Touch-Ups are for Herefords. However, the color of the paint can
be adjusted depending on how many coats you apply.
What is the difference between Sullivan’s Fungus Fighter and Sullivan’s Anti-Fungus Shampoo?
Fungus Fighter is for animals that already have ringworm, foot rot, or some other type of fungus, while the Anti-Fungus Shampoo is a preventative measure.
What is the difference between Sullivan’s Bright Lights Whitening Shampoo and Sullivan’s Stain Buster Liquid Bluing Shampoo?
Bright Lights is a basic shampoo and is most commonly used to brighten white hair, but it also can improve all colors of hair. It is very important to follow the directions printed on the bottle when using Bright Lights. Stain Buster is more for eliminating spots on animals.
When can I use the Sullivan Stimulator combs?
Our Stimulator combs are a great comb for everyday use or on show day for getting through hair that does not have adhesive in it. The Stimulator comb should not be used on areas that have been sprayed with adhesive.
What size of showstick do I need?
When determining the size of showstick needed, an exhibitor should consider his/her height, as well as the size of the calf. The showstick should be shoulder height.
What is the difference between Sullivan’s Turbo Fan and Sullivan’s Showbarn Fan?
Our Turbo fan outputs more air than the Showbarn fan, but the Showbarn fan is quieter because of its deeper cage.
What is the output of Sullivan’s Arctic Circle and Sullivan’s Arctic Fan Cage Kit?
The Arctic Circle puts out one half-gallon of water per hour, while the Arctic Fan Cage Kit dispenses one gallon per hour.
How often do I need to reapply Sullivan’s Stall Freshener?
One bottle of the Stall Freshener per week should be used.
What can I do about clogged tips on my misting system?
A first step is to purchase the Sullivan’s Misting Filter. This filters out particles that can cause clogging. Other solutions are soaking the tips in vinegar or a product named CLR, which can be purchased at your local hardware store.
What is the difference between Sullivan’s Cool Collar and Sullivan’s Arctic Ice Pack?
The Cool Collar is used at home more often than shows. A great way to use this product is to have one collar in the freezer, while the other is on the calf. The Ice Pack is used at shows about thirty minutes before going into the show ring to keep your animal cool.
What is the difference between Sullivan’s Cadillac Sheep Stand and Sullivan’s Steel Sheep Blocking Stand?
On the Cadillac Sheep Stand, the feet and legs adjust. This feature is not available on the Steel Sheep Blocking Stand.
How can I shine up my galvanized or aluminum show box or dolly box?
Sullivan’s Final Bloom is an excellent way to shine your box before heading to the big show.
Do blowers fit in the showcase show boxes?
No, blowers do not fit in the showcase show boxes.
Do the Clip-On Feeders come with the clips?
Yes, each feeder comes with two clips. Additional clips can be purchased, also.
What is your most popular hog showing tool?
This can vary by different regions of the country. However, our White or Leather Handle Whip with Chrome Tip look the most professional and are our top sellers.
When is the Jowl-Reducer product the most effective?
For best results, this product should be used two weeks before the show. This product is used
to develop a more youthful appearance in market hogs.

Clipper & Blade Information
Which oil do I need for my clipper?
This depends on the size of your clipper. If you have a smaller clipper, such as an Andis Super 2-Speed or comparable model, you will want to use Sullivan’s Extend Clipper Lube. With a larger clipper, like an Aesculap flathead or Wahl/Lister flathead clipper, one should use Sullivan’s Endurance Oil and Sullivan’s Clipper Grease.
What products do I need for sharpening blades?
You will need Sullivan’s Lazer Blade Sharpener, as well as many other accessories. These include: Sullivan’s Blade Sharpening Grit (Fine and Coarse), two Blade Sharpening Magnets, Final Bloom, Extend clipper lube, and Sullivan’s Anti-Fungus Equipment Dip. (The Lazer Blade Sharpener should NOT be used to sharpen smaller blades as the machine is not equipped for smaller blades.)
What blade do I need to use with the Speed-O-Guides or Wahl Stainless Steel Attachment Guide Combs? What are these combs used for?
A standard Oster or Andis #10 blade should be used with these guide combs. These guides
are often used for clipping pigs when a certain hair length is desired. They can also be used when clipping cattle to help prevent errors or for a novice fitter.
Which combs can I use for my sheephead clipper?
