No. 12 Lykes Heirs

615,000 acres

Dr. Howell Tyson Lykes gave up medicine in the 1870s to take over his family’s 500 acres in Hernando County, Florida. The company he founded with his sons is still a privately held, family-managed business, but today holdings encompass 275,000 acres in Texas and 337,000 acres in Florida. The cattle operation is one of the largest in the country with equal emphasis on forage quality and nutritional value.
