Favorite Show Day Product: Tail Adhesive & Final Bloom

Favorite Daily Hair Care Product: Stimulator Comb Favorite Barn Tool: Turbo Fans and Air Express III Exhibitor’s Favorite Hobby: Showing cattle, watching sports and spending time with family and friends. Favorite University: Oklahoma State University Favorite Stock Show: Reno All Time Favorite Calf: The first calf I ever showed, Laflins Lightning Favorite Breed: Angus Biggest Challenge: Cerebral Palsy (CP) has been my biggest challenge to overcome. The physical challenges or differences have made it difficult to keep my strength up in order to show. Overcoming My Challenge: I have relied a lot on my family to help me prepare for the show ring. Whether it is trying to make an arm brace to clip on cattle, or constructing a walker that has larger wheels to get around better in the show ring. Another way I have overcome this challenge is putting the time into strength training to the keep my muscle strength up. It has been a long process but there is nothing that I can not overcome. Proudest Accomplishment: I remember telling my dad when I was 12 that I wanted to show. Growing up, it was hard for me as it seemed like everyone kept making exceptions for someone else to show my calves because of my CP. Finally, two years ago in Reno, NV, my father and I were sitting outside the show ring talking about the show the next day, and we knew it was time for me to finally have the chance to experience the show ring. Even though I was nervous, it was a time that felt so surreal. I finally got the chance to live my dream that I had been looking forward to for years. The best part of being able to show ... Even though I was third in class, I felt like a champion to have well respected guys within the breed come up to me and shake my hand to congratulate me on a job well done. Future Goals: I hope to stay involved in the Angus breed & the agricultural industry. I hope to receive a masters at OSU & pursue a career in sales.

Special Thanks to my family & friends. Without them, I would not be who I am today. They have helped me see the bigger picture and overcome my challenges in life.

Always remember ... the faster the dead hair is shed out, the quicker new healthy hair will arrive.

SENSATION by Sullivan’s


The Smart Sensation like no other. Healthy for hide and hair, the Smart Sensation gently massages the hide to stimulate blood flow that releases the natural oils from the skin to coat the hair and promote healthy hair growth. With the 129 precisely placed ball-tipped teeth, you can actually see the Smart Sensation brush create hair separation off the skin allowing air to flow deep into the hair base for added hair stimulation and hair growth. The advantage of the Smart Sensation is how it amplifies the volume of the hair as it lifts up from the hide without causing curls, kinks or matting that are often associated with rice root or massage brushes. The Smart Sensation is similar to human vent hair brushes but has been designed with the proper size for show cattle and a more comfortable handle application. Cattle love the feel of the stimulating Smart Sensation!


A slightly deeper basket with a reinforced back stop and raised sides. With a reinforced attachment point you will see no more breakage as seen in previous forks. Comfortable grip on a wood handle. Quality, unbreakable, impact resistant basket.

SMART Feed Pan™

This large, 22 quart capacity feed pan holds one gallon more feed than previous feed pan designs. Ideal for holding today’s high fiber feed rations. Large, open handle design provides a comfortable grip. The large diameter at the bottom of this feed pan prevents tipping and spills.

Patent pending.

Sullivan’s SMART Series SMART Bucket™

Soft, comfortable grip. Convenient pour spout. Flat back, 20 quart capacity bucket. The most uniquely designed bucket you have ever seen.

SMART Sensation™ Described above

SMART Comb™ The Smart Comb™ is just that ... a multi-tasking, yet lightest weight comb on the market, with interchangeable blades that securely snap in and out of a plastic handle that allows you to pick the blade of choice. Available as a complete package or as an individual comb.

As Described by t h e B r u m l e y F a m i l y ...

The dedication of showing and caring for a champion is a tremendous honor itself. The Brumley’s patience and knowledge that it takes to breed and show your own national champions is the industry’s highest accomplishment.

Favorite Donor: Two donors at the top of our list are /S Lady Peerless 180L ‘Sammie’ and BF Flirtatious 71T ET ‘Flirt’. Sammie is owned with Albin Farms and is our foundation donor, running on 11 years. Flirt is the first female bred and raised by us who has went on to be crowned multipule National Champion titles; and has produced a national champion in her first calf crop. Flirt is owned with Bar 1 Ranch. Favorite Breed of Cattle: Herefords! All-Time Favorite Champion We Raised: A tie between mother and daughter - BF Flirtatious 713T ‘Flirt’ and BF 743 Burlesque 092X ‘Cher’, owned with the Colyer Family and Gohr Angus and Hereford Ranch. Feeding Program/Regimen: We believe in consistently feeding high quality mixed feed from Cache Commodities out of Utah. Along with a select group of supplements from Sullivan Supply - Golden Flo, Show Bloom, VitaFerm Sure Champ pellets and seasonally Hide and Hair. Proudest Moment/Biggest Accomplishment to Date: Winning Denver with bred and raised by the family is pretty special. Although, all of the kids accomplishments at Junior Nationals over the years has been priceless. Heard Health: We follow a very strict vaccination and working program that is conducive to their environment. Sires Used for 2013 Calf Crop: Their new herd sire C North Face 1107 ET, AH JDH Cracker Jack 26U, ECR L18 Extra Deep 9279, CRR Helton Helton 980, CRR About Time 743 and NJW 98S R117 Ribeye 88X ET.

Any advice to those wanting to develop a cow herd: Invest in genetics that will pay off in the pasture by consistently producing offspring that are marketable, competitive and make cows; don’t get caught up in just winning ribbons and banners.

VITA HAIR™ is an advanced nutrient package that infuses the hair with proven hair vitamins for ...

• Faster Hair Growth • Thicker Hair • Increased Shine • More Body & Volume • Healthier Skin • Improved Nutrient Absorption

How do the VITA HAIR™ Nourishing Vitamins work? Biotin vitamin is the first vitamin thought of when considering HAIR GROWTH. The major benefit of Biotin is its ability to strengthen both the hair follicle and the hair shaft, where the hair is produced, which prevents hair breakage and dryness. This is a scientifically proven crucial step in the natural hair growing process. One of the chief things that slows hair growth is damaged hair. Biotin enriched hair has increased elasticity of the cortex which prevents breakage. This enables healthy, FASTER HAIR GROWTH. Biotin also thickens the actual hair cuticle providing a fuller appearance.

Pro-Vitamin B-5 is considered the king of all HAIR CARE vitamins. Pro-Vitamin B-5 stimulates healthy scalp circulation which leads to improved hair health. It coats the hair and seals its surface, lubricating the hair shaft making the hair shine. It possesses superior long term moisturizing properties because of its unique ability to penetrate and nourish the hair shaft. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that stimulates circulation to the skin and supports capillary growth. The skin needs to have proper circulation in order to keep the hair follicles alive and thriving. When there are more capillaries, the circulation improves leading to increased nutrient absorption into the hair follicles, which speeds hair growth.
