James & Nick Sullivan

July 2012 

James & Nick have not only exhibited and produced numerous champions of various breeds, they have also given back to the industry by serving on national junior boards, hosting sales, and lending a hand to fellow exhibitors.  James and Nick Sullivan of Dunlap, Iowa have without question become a familiar face at the photo backdrop, in the ring, or in the show barn.  It requires a lot of hard work, skill, and overall good luck to achieve success within the show ring; therefore, when not only an individual, but a family, finds themselves in the winner's circle on multiple occasions over multiple years, it is something we can and should all commend.  Some highlight females that the Sullivan brothers have exhibited include Nick's Shorthorn Plus female, SULL Jaylynn 0904, that was a multiple time Grand Champion and Supreme Champion Female at shows including the 2011 American Royal and NAILE; as well as James' MaineTainer female, GCC All Right All Ready, who's exemplary winning streak earned James the title of the Maine-Anjou Association's Premier Exhibitor for the 2008 show year.  While most Hall of Fame's honor individuals long after they are retired and years after their successes, we enjoy honoring both James and Nick Sullivan while they are still current in our industry.
