Parker Ranch is committed to preserving the Paniolo culture and legacy by operating a sustainable cattle business on 130,000 acres of rich natural volcanic grasslands, on the slopes of the majestic Mauna Kea and Kohala Mountains.
Parker Ranch cattle graze year-round on forage that is healthy and plentiful. Parker is one of the largest and oldest producers of natural, pasture raised cattle in the State of Hawai’i. The Ranch operates a cow-calf operation with approximately 10,000 mother cows. These cows are divided into two breeding seasons, winter and summer, with about 50% of the herd bred in each season. Most of those calves are exported to the mainland to be grown out on grass and finished for market.
