Ranch Raised with Karina Jones - Radishes, Ribeyes, and a Rip-Roaring Weekend! EP 422

Karina Jones is a real-life ranch wife in the Nebraska Sandhills and one of the most highly sought-after speakers in the cattle industry nationwide!

Radishes, Ribeyes, and a Rip-Roaring Weekend! Thanks for tuning into Ranch Raised.

As I shared my anxiety last week about getting ready for our branding, I am here to report that we all made it through the weekend. The calves are worked. The crew was well fed. I apparently planned on feeding 400 because I have leftovers to feed around 300 hungry souls.

Branding day was followed up by a couple of cool, overcast days with some moisture, which is just perfect to help those calves rest & recover. We have turned cows back to some winter range until they will start heading to their summer vacation destinations next week. We have a full schedule this week, so trucking half the herd out of here won’t be able to happen.

I was able to work in my garden and got my potatoes all hilled. I’m still needing to plant a bunch of my heat loving plants like my tomatos, peppers, and eggplant. Hopefully that will happen this week. Don’t worry, it is pretty common in my area, especially for those of us outside of town to plant in late May into early June. This also helps to not have a huge glut of produce ready during the week of the county fair.

We rounded out the holiday weekend with fresh picked radishes, roasted on the smoker with peppers and onions to go alongside the Jones Ranch raised ribeyes.
We may not get to go on vacations or getaways to the lake, but we do eat well, the company is pretty good, and the views are like no other. And for all that we are blessed.

Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 4 children near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.

Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her current role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.

You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the Jones Ranch.

Cattle producers are her people. She will meet you at the county fair, at the sale barn, or anywhere the dusty trail leads.
