Paniolo pays students a visit


Parker School kindergarten and first-grade students recently enjoyed some special visitors.

Parker Ranch livestock operations manager Keoki Wood, livestock operations assistant Dee Dee Bertelmann and Wood’s 14-year-old horse, Chicken, stopped by Parker Lower School to give the keiki a glimpse into ranching life.

Wood impressed upon the children the importance of a cowboy and a horse being a team and working together. He also taught them about the parts of the saddle, how beef comes from cows and that Parker Ranch has more than 10,000 head of cattle.
