The mauka corral is one of the busiest areas of Kapualei Ranch with livestock being moved through it regularly. A set of men from Hui Kukulu joined forces this month recreated the entire perimeter with beefy materials. Mahalo nui, boys!
Shannon Lopez's Legacy
Sadly, a big advocate for native forest restoration has passed. Shannon Lopez gave tirelessly to protecting Molokai’s native forests - some of the most intact forests in Hawaii. The resurgence of forest at the top of Kapualei Ranch will be his lasting fingerprint.
2018 Molokai Stampede Success
This year’s Molokai Stampede is in the books. It was the 11th Stampede and probably the best event the Ranch has produced. A large gallery of photos will be posted to the website soon. Congratulations to the winners!
Molokai Stampede 2018
As we head into the end of Summer, the details for Molokai Stampede 2018 are coming together. Book your calendars for November 2-4!
Work crews launched a new initiative this July of improving access to previously isolated areas on the ranch. It is the beginning of new horseback & hiking accessibility!
Fencing Kick-Off to Summer
The largest fencing crew we have brought to the ranch and the biggest project yet. These guys made it happen and restored the largest grazing paddock on the ranch. Solid work, gang.
Cattle Move East
Another month; another paddock brought back online in 2017. After a weekend dedicated to hard work by a solid group of guys, the cattle herd was moved to a paddock along the ranch's eastern border. It was also the first time to experiment with electric fencing in one section. Mahalo to Sale Sproat, Bob Egbert, Aka Wedemeyer, Jason Zambuto, Gary Teves, Aukina Hunt and Hobey Moss for your kokua.
Fencing Kicks Off 2017
Another solid fencing crew effort by a great group of guys started the year off right. By the end of two days a new paddock was reactivated and the cattle herd now have a new home. Mahalo, boys.
2016 Molokai Stampede is in the books
The 2016 Molokai Stampede was yet another great time on the ranch for cowboys and cowgirls from across the state. Spectators packed into the covered seating to watch the action. Joey had the cattle in such good shape, the ropers had to be quick on the draw. Be sure to check out the Stampede page to see a gallery of photos that represent the event well.
First Jackpot Roping in the Renovated Arena
This past weekend Kapualei Ranch held its first Jackpot Roping in the renovated arena with the new cattle herd. Great event and the next one is planned for October 15th!
Kapualei Ranch's arena has been majorly upgraded with new equipment on all sides. The topsoil is in prime condition thanks to Joey Lorenzo's careful treatment.
Fence Crews Making Tight Lines
A big mahalo from Kapualei Ranch to the Molokai and Oahu guys.
