EXCELLENCE IN RANGE MANAGEMENT – BOBBY FERREIRA!
Congratulations to Kauai’s own Bobby Ferreira of Olumau Angus Plus for receiving the Excellence in Range Management award from the California-Pacific Section of the Society for Range Management. The
Section awards one or two individuals each year in recognition of land managers who have made significant contributions towards advancing rangeland stewardship. While Bobby is now splitting his time between Kauai and Maui, the nomination was in recognition of the range improvements he made while managing Olumau Angus Plus in Puhi. In less than 8 years, Bobby transitioned the pastures from fallow sugarcane fields to highly productive legume-grass mixes supporting animals with top beef genetics for forage finishing in the tropics. Congratulations again Bobby! (excerpted from UH-CTAHR’s Kauai County Livestock News, Fall/Winter 2011).
