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!
You have no idea about the big surprise you are in for today on Ranch Raised! Today marks a monumental milestone on the radio airwaves, it is OUR 500th episode of Ranch Raised! 500 days I have had the honor of your local radio station choosing to share this show with you. 500 days I have had the privilege of connecting with the most loyal listeners in all the land.
I say that it is “our” 500th episode because I am pretty sentimental to the fact that Ranch Raised is not mine alone. I have a team behind me in Monte James and Jesse Stroud, the owners of Your Ag Network that have always poured their unwavering belief into me. I have had a line-up of amazing companies that took a chance on a new show and invested their advertising dollars into sponsoring this corner of the radio world, especially huge thank you to Purple Wave Auction, who have tied on and been amazing to work with.
This show belongs to the greatest stations in the nation that choose to use it to light up their airwaves. I would love it, if you would call this station you are listening on and give them some praise and thank them for playing this show. If your local station is not yet playing Ranch Raised, call them and encourage them to do and tell them to connect with Your Ag Network and we will get them all set up.
We have a prize pack ready to ship out the door! Go to the Ranch Raised FB page where you will find a post pinned to the top of the page. Tell us what your favorite RR recipe has been that I have shared. You can even go check them all out on the YAN app or website and the RR Recipe Book!
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.
