Riassunto: Parker Ranch, located in Waimea on the Big Island of Hawaii, is not only one of the country s largest cattle ranches but it is also one of the oldest and most historic. Loyal to the Land: The Legendary Parker Ranch, 1970 1992; Volume 3, Agents of Change continues the history of Parker Ranch and details the beginning of new and aggressive leadership on the ranch. Strewn with photographs from the time period, Loyal to the Land depicts not only the management changes that took place, but also the dramatic changes made to the cattle industry in Hawaii. Significant of the time was the passing of Parker Ranch s last owner and sixth-generation Parker descendent Richard Smart. With his passing, the end of an era brought about a board of trustees to oversee Parker Ranch.
L'autore: Dr. Billy Bergin, born in Hawaii, received his degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State University in 1967. He returned home in 1968, opening a mixed veterinary practice in North Kona, Hawaii. In 1970 he took over the responsibility for the health needs of the fifty thousand head of cattle and two thousand horses of the legendary Parker Ranch. Over the next three decades, Dr. Bergin became the architect of modern animal health techniques and programs that launched Hawaii's ranching industry into the new millennium.
